The transaction review screen in your MaxMind account portal now has expanded options to filter your transactions. You may now filter transactions by:
- Account user ID: the user ID of the end-user who initiated the transaction
- Shop ID: used to identify the storefront or merchant associated with the transaction
- Credit card issuer ID: the issuer ID number (IIN), sometimes called a bank ID number (BIN) of the card used in the transaction
- Custom rule ID: the ID for the custom rule that was triggered for the transaction
We have updated the minFraud service to handle 8 digit credit card issuer ID numbers (IINs). These are non-breaking changes.
credit_card/issuer_id_numberinput can now receive 6 or 8 digits.
credit_card/last_4_digitsinput has been renamed
credit_card/last_digits, and receives 2 or 4 of the last digits of the credit card.
credit_card/last_4_digitsinput will continue to work as an alias for the new
- In some cases with longer IINs we will truncate the
credit_card/last_digitsinput so that we process only the data required for risk scoring. If we truncate the last digits, the minFraud service will return a warning message.
- If you send 8 digits for the
credit_card/issuer_id_number, but we do not recognize an 8 digit IIN, we will truncate the input to 6 digits. If we truncate the IIN, the minFraud service will return a warning message.

minFraud alerts now support signed requests for webhook delivery. You can now set a secret, which can be used to verify the authenticity of a minFraud alert delivered via webhook. See our minFraud Alert documentation for instructions.
We have renamed minFraud subscores to be "risk factor scores" to make it clearer that the scores returned in our minFraud Factors web service are actionable risk scores in their own right, similar to the IP risk score. You can learn more about all of minFraud's risk scores on our knowledge base.
Nothing has changed about how to use our web services, and no changes are
required to your current integration. Specifically, the JSON response for
minFraud Factors queries will continue to return risk factor scores in the
subscores object. Learn more about the subscores
