2. Introduction

The purpose of this document is to express the data model used by the Open API for FSP Interoperability (hereafter cited as "the API") in the form of JSON Schema binding rules, along with the validation rules for their corresponding instances.

This document adds to and builds on the information provided in Open API for FSP Interoperability Specification. The contents of the Specification are listed in Section 2.1.

The types used in the PDP API fall primarily into three categories:

  • Basic data types and Formats used

  • Element types

  • Complex types

The various types used in API Definition, Data Model and the Open API Specification, as well as the JSON transformation rules to which their instances must adhere, are identified in the following sections.

2.1 Open API for FSP Interoperability Specification

The Open API for FSP Interoperability Specification includes the following documents.

2.1.1 General Documents

  • Glossary

2.1.2 Logical Documents

  • Logical Data Model

  • Generic Transaction Patterns

  • Use Cases

2.1.3 Asynchronous REST Binding Documents

  • API Definition

  • JSON Binding Rules

  • Scheme Rules

2.1.4 Data Integrity, Confidentiality, and Non-Repudiation

  • PKI Best Practices

  • Signature

  • Encryption

3. Keywords and Usage

The keywords used in the JSON Schemas and rules are derived from JSON Schema Specification1. The types of keywords used are identified in Sections 3.1, 3.2 and 3.3. As discussed in detail later, some of these keywords specify validation parameters whereas others are more descriptive, such as Metadata. The description that follows specifies details such as whether a field MUST2 be present in the definition and whether a certain field is associated with a particular data type.

3.1 Validation Keywords

This section3 provides descriptions of the keywords used for validation in API Definition. Validation keywords in a schema impose requirements for successful validation of an instance.

3.1.1 maxLength

The value of this keyword MUST be a non-negative integer. A string instance is valid against this keyword if its length is less than, or equal to, the value of this keyword. The length of a string instance is defined as the number of its characters as defined by RFC 7159[RFC7159].

3.1.2 minLength

The value of this keyword MUST be a non-negative integer. A string instance is valid against this keyword if its length is greater than, or equal to, the value of this keyword. The length of a string instance is defined as the number of its characters as defined by RFC 7159[RFC7159]. Omitting this keyword has the same behaviour as assigning it a value of 0.

3.1.3 pattern

The value of this keyword MUST be a string. This string SHOULD be a valid regular expression, according to the ECMA 262 regular expression dialect. A string instance is considered valid if the regular expression matches the instance successfully. Recall: regular expressions are not implicitly anchored.

3.1.4 items

The value of items MUST be either a valid JSON Schema or an array of valid JSON Schemas. This keyword determines how child instances validate for arrays; it does not directly validate the immediate instance itself. If items is a schema, validation succeeds if all elements in the array successfully validate against that schema. If items is an array of schemas, validation succeeds if each element of the instance validates against the schema at the same position, if such a schema exists. Omitting this keyword has the same behaviour as specifying an empty schema.

3.1.5 maxItems

The value of this keyword MUST be a non-negative integer. An array instance is valid against maxItems if its size is less than, or equal to, the value of this keyword.

3.1.6 minItems

The value of this keyword MUST be a non-negative integer. An array instance is valid against minItems if its size is greater than, or equal to, the value of this keyword. Omitting this keyword has the same behaviour as a value of 0.

3.1.7 required

The value of this keyword MUST be an array. Elements of this array (if there are any) MUST be strings and MUST be unique. An object instance is valid against this keyword if every item in the array is the name of a property in the instance. Omitting this keyword results in the same behaviour as does having the array be empty.

3.1.8 properties

The value of properties MUST be an object. Each value of this object MUST be a valid JSON Schema. This keyword determines how child instances validate for objects; it does not directly validate the immediate instance itself. Validation succeeds if, for each name that appears in both the instance and as a name within this keyword's value, the child instance for that name successfully validates against the corresponding schema. Omitting this keyword results in the same behaviour as does having an empty object.

3.1.9 enum

The value of this keyword MUST be an array. This array SHOULD have at least one element. Elements in the array SHOULD be unique. An instance validates successfully against this keyword if its value is equal to one of the elements in this keyword's array value. Elements in the array might be of any value, including null.

3.1.10 type

The value of this keyword MUST be either a string or an array. If it is an array, elements of the array MUST be strings and MUST be unique. String values MUST be one of the six primitive types (null, boolean, object, array, number, or string), or integer which matches any number with a zero-fractional part. An instance validates if and only if the instance is in any of the sets listed for this keyword.

This specification uses string type for all basic types and element types, but enforces restrictions using regular expressions as patterns. Complex types are of object type and contain properties that are either element or object types in turn. Array types are used to specify lists, which are currently only used as part of complex types.

3.2 Metadata Keywords

This section provides descriptions of the fields used in the JSON definitions of the types used. The description specifies whether a field MUST be present in the definition and specifies whether a certain field is associated with a primary data type. Validation keywords in a schema impose requirements for successful validation of an instance.

3.2.1 definitions

This keyword's value MUST be an object. Each member value of this object MUST be a valid JSON Schema. This keyword plays no role in validation. Its role is to provide a standardized location for schema authors to incorporate JSON Schemas into a more general schema.

3.2.2 "title" and "description"

The value of both keywords MUST be a string. Both keywords can be used to provide a user interface with information about the data produced by this user interface. A title will preferably be short, whereas a description will provide explanation about the purpose of the instance described in this schema.

3.3 Instance and $ref

Two keywords, Instance and $ref are used in either the JSON Schema definitions or the transformation rules in this document, which are described in Sections 3.3.1 and 3.3.2. Instance is not used in the Open API Specification; this term is used in this document to describe validation and transformation rules. $ref contains a URI value as a reference to other types; it is used in the Specification.

3.3.1 Instance

JSON Schema interprets documents according to a data model. A JSON value interpreted according to this data model is called an instance4. An instance has one of six primitive types, and a range of possible values depending on the type:

null: A JSON null production

boolean: A true or false value, from the JSON true or false productions

object: An unordered set of properties mapping a string to an instance, from the JSON object production

array: An ordered list of instances, from the JSON array production

number: An arbitrary-precision, base-10 decimal number value, from the JSON number production

string: A string of Unicode code points, from the JSON string production

Whitespace and formatting concerns are outside the scope of the JSON Schema. Since an object cannot have two properties with the same key, behaviour for a JSON document that tries to define two properties (the member production) with the same key (the string production) in a single object is undefined.

3.3.2 Schema references with $ref keyword

The $ref5 keyword is used to reference a schema and provides the ability to validate recursive structures through self- reference. An object schema with a $ref property MUST be interpreted as a "$ref" reference. The value of the $ref property MUST be a URI Reference. Resolved against the current URI base, it identifies the URI of a schema to use. All other properties in a "$ref" object MUST be ignored.

The URI is not a network locator, only an identifier. A schema need not be downloadable from the address if it is a network- addressable URL, and implementations SHOULD NOT assume they should perform a network operation when they encounter a network-addressable URI. A schema MUST NOT be run into an infinite loop against a schema. For example, if two schemas "#alice" and "#bob" both have an "allOf" property that refers to the other, a naive validator might get stuck in an infinite recursive loop trying to validate the instance. Schemas SHOULD NOT make use of infinite recursive nesting like this; the behavior is undefined.

It is used with the syntax "$ref" and is mapped to an existing definition. From the syntax, the value part of $ref, #/definitions/, indicates that the type being referenced is from the Definitions section of the Open API Specification (Typically, an Open API Specification has sections named Paths, Definitions, Responses and Parameters.). An example for this can be found in Listing 26, where the types for properties authentication and authenticationValue are provided by using references to Authenticationtype and AuthenticationValue types, respectively.

3.4 JSON Definitions and Examples

JSON definitions and examples are provided after most sections defining the transformation rules, where relevant. These are provided in JSON form, taken from the JSON version of the Open API Specification. The Regular Expressions in the examples may have minor differences (sometimes having an additional '\' symbol) when compared to the ones in rules and descriptions because the regular expressions in the examples are taken from the JSON version whereas the rules and descriptions are from the standard Open API (Swagger) Specification. They are provided in the relevant section as a numbered Listing. For example, Listing 1 provides the JSON representation of the definition of data type Amount.

For each of the data types, a description of the JSON Schema from the Open API Specification and (where relevant) an example of that type are provided. Following the Schema description are transformation rules that apply to an instance of that particular type.

4. Element and Basic Data Types

This section contains the definitions of and transformation rules for the basic formats and element types used by the API as specified in API Definition and API Data Model. These definitions are basic in the context of the API specification, but not the Open API Technical Specification. Often, these basic data types are derived from the basic types supported by Open API Specification standards, such as string type.

4.1 Data Type Amount

This section provides the JSON Schema definition for the data type Amount. Listing 1 provides a JSON Schema for the Amount type.

  • JSON value pair with Name "title" and Value "Amount"

  • JSON value pair with Name "type" and Value "string"

  • JSON value pair with Name "pattern" and Value "^([0]|([1-9][0-9]{0,17}))([.][0-9]{0,3}[1-9])?$"

  • JSON value pair with Name "description" and Value "The API data type Amount is a JSON String in a canonical format that is restricted by a regular expression for interoperability reasons. This pattern does not allow any trailing zeroes at all, but allows an amount without a minor currency unit. It also only allows four digits in the minor currency unit; a negative value is not allowed. Using more than 18 digits in the major currency unit is not allowed."

Listing 1
"Amount": {
    "title": "Amount", 
    "type": "string", 
    "pattern":
    "^([0]|([1-9][0-9]{0,17}))([.][0-9]{0,3}[1-9])?$",
    "maxLength": 32, 
    "description": "The API data type Amount is a JSON String in a canonical format that is restricted by a regular expression for interoperability reasons." 
}

Listing 1 -- JSON Schema for Data type Amount

The transformation rules for an instance of Amount data type are as follows:

  • A given Instance of Amount type MUST be of String Type.

  • The instance MUST be a match for the regular expression ^([0]|([1-9][0-9]{0,17}))([.][0-9]{0,3}[1-9])?$

  • The length of this instance is restricted by the regular expression above as 23, with 18 digits in the major currency unit and four digits in the minor currency unit. Valid example values for Amount type: 124.45, 5, 5.5, 4.4444, 0.5, 0, 181818181818181818

Listing 26 -- JSON Schema for complex type AuthenticationInfo

The transformation rules for an instance of AuthenticationInfo complex type are as follows:

  • A given Instance of AuthenticationInfo type MUST be of Object type.

  • The instance MUST contain a property with name authentication.

  • The JSON object titled authentication MUST be an instance of AuthenticationType type, provided in the definitions.

  • The instance MUST contain a property with name authenticationValue.

  • The JSON object titled authenticationValue MUST be an instance of AuthenticationValue type, provided in the definitions. An example instance for AuthenticationInfo complex type is given in Listing 27.

Listing 27
"authenticationInfo": {
    "authentication": "OTP", 
    "authenticationValue": "1234" 
}

5.2 Types of objects in Requests or Responses

This section contains the definitions and transformation characteristics of the complex types that are used in the API Specification of the PDP API to capture objects in Requests and Responses. These have the same characteristics as the complex data types discussed in the Complex Type section.

5.2.1 Complex Type AuthorizationsIDPutResponse

This section provides the JSON Schema definition for the complex type AuthorizationsIDPutResponse. Listing 29 provides a JSON Schema for complex type AuthorizationsIDPutResponse.

  • JSON value pair with Name "type" and Value "object"

  • JSON value pair with Name "title" and Value "AuthorizationsIDPutResponse".

  • JSON value pair with Name "description" and Value "PUT /authorizations/{ID} object".

  • A JSON object "properties" with the following content:

    • If Property "authenticationInfo" is present, a JSON object "authenticationInfo" with the following content:

    • JSON value pair with Name "$ref" and as Value the definition of AuthenticationInfo type, located under definitions as indicated by #/definitions/

    • A JSON object responseType with the following content:

    • JSON value pair with Name "$ref" and as Value the definition of AuthorizationResponse type, located under definitions as indicated by "#/definitions/".

  • An array required and as Value a list with single element "responseType"

Listing 29
"AuthorizationsIDPutResponse": {
    "title": "AuthorizationsIDPutResponse", 
    "type": "object", 
    "description": "PUT /authorizations/{ID} object", 
    "properties": {
        "authenticationInfo": {
            "$ref": "#/definitions/AuthenticationInfo", 
            "description": "OTP or QR Code if entered, otherwise empty." 
        } 
        "responseType": { 
            "$ref": "#/definitions/AuthorizationResponse", 
            "description": "Enum containing response information; if the customer entered the authentication value, rejected the transaction, or requested a resend of the authentication value." 
        } 
    }, 
    "required ": [
        "responseType" 
    ] 
}

Listing 29 -- JSON Schema for complex type AuthorizationsIDPutResponse

The transformation rules for an instance of AuthorizationsIDPutResponse complex type are as follows:

  • A given Instance of AuthorizationsIDPutResponse type MUST be of object type.

  • The instance MUST contain a property with name "authenticationInfo".

  • The JSON object titled "authenticationInfo" MUST be an instance of AuthenticationInfo type, provided in the definitions.

  • The instance MUST contain a property with name "responseType".

  • The JSON object titled "responseType" MUST be an instance of AuthorizationReponse type, provided in the definitions.

An example instance for AuthorizationsIDPutResponse complex type is given in Listing 30.

Listing 30
{ 
    "authenticationInfo": {
        "authentication": "OTP", 
        "authenticationValue": "1234" 
    }, 
    "responseType": "ENTERED"
}
