Yodlee REST API Documentation

Yodlee Aggregation API is designed for clients who need permission-based access and bank-level security to access their customers bank, credit card, investments, loan accounts and other financial data.

Yodlee platform aggregates consumers financial data based on a user-permission model, whereby a consumer voluntarily provides online access credentials for an account or a set of accounts. The data is gathered and stored in Yodlee's database in a well-defined and normalized structure. The aggregation APIs allows you to retrieve and view this data.


Use of Yodlee APIs requires application login (referred as cobrand login) as well login for end user (referred to as user login). Cobrand login establishes authentication for client application with Yodlee platform. End user login allows clients to use APIs for their own customers.
