HEV order type

Using the HEV order type, the user can download the EBICS versions supported by the bank.




HEV is a download key management order type. By submitting an HEV request, the user requests the bank to provide a list of EBICS versions supported by the bank. The bank provides a response that contains a list of supported EBICS versions and the version of the relevant schema.
