1.2  Merchant Identifiers

All CashBox Objects have a VID (a Vindicia Globally Unique Identifier), which is generated by the system, and a Merchant Identifier, which is generated or provided by the merchant system. In the newly supported REST API, Merchant Identifiers containing the forward slash (/) character will no longer be allowed. You must remove any forward slash characters from your merchant identifiers before you can use the REST API. Meanwhile, you can continue to use the forward slash in SOAP versions prior to release 23.0.0, but you must eliminate all instances of the forward slash before you can upgrade. As policy going forward, the "/" character will be prohibited from use within any Merchant Identifiers, across API versions.
