[Overview]New Features and Enhancements Added to Broker API Dashboard

Over the last months, we have been making diligent efforts to enhance and incorporate new functionalities into our Broker API dashboard, helping you to develop your fintech applications effortlessly. This article aims to give a high-level overview of all the latest improvements.


New Filters Added to Streamline Experience

Considering valuable feedback, we’ve added new parameters such as ranking, searching, and filtering, and additional exporting capabilities to help streamline and improve your experience.

New Filters

Now, on the “Accounts” page, you can easily rank users by the  “Created At” date and/or “Status” of the account. This will allow you to see the latest and first created accounts!

Additionally, we’ve added filtering by “Account ID,” “Account Number,” and “Email Address,” which enables you to search for your users quickly and efficiently.

Enhanced Team and Team Setting Functionality


Managing team members can be a crucial task for any business or organization. All members must be privy to current information, tracking, monitoring end-customer data, and more. Keeping this in mind, we have updated the team and team settings on the dashboard to make it easier for you to add, manage, edit and remove members from your team.


We’ve also added a new Support role in which team members in this position will have read-only access. You can give access to this role to members in your organization that will investigate, understand and solve end-customer issues.

Company Overview

In the Team Settings section, you can now easily provide your business details, which will be easily accessible to your team. The information you add here can be utilized for tax filing documentation or when additional information is required from our partners.

You now have the ability to add your company's logo, update your team name, business email, phone number, and more.

Sandbox Configurations


In the team settings section, we have introduced a new functionality known as Sandbox Configurations. Previously, the sandbox environment had fixed daily transfer and transaction limits.

With the introduction of Sandbox Configurations, you now have the freedom to customize these limits according to your preferences.  You can exert greater control over the specific amounts you wish to allocate for daily transfers and transactions, as well as enable crypto trading for your instance.

Sandbox Configurations
- JNLC Daily Transfer Limit can be increased from $10,000 to now values of either $10,000, $50,000, $250,000, $500,000, or $1,000,000.

- JNLC Transaction Limit can be increased from $50 to now values of $50, $5,000, $10,000, $50,000, and $100,000

- Firm Account Daily Transfer Limit can be increased from $50,000 to now values of $50,000, $250,000, $500,000, $750,000 and $1,000,000

The difference between JNLC Daily Transfer Limit and JNLC Transaction Limit is the former is the daily overall limit for your entity, and the latter is the limit per transaction.

Note: JNLC stands for Journal cash between accounts. You can simulate instant funding in sandbox by journaling funds between your pre-funded sweep accounts and a user’s account.

Request for Account Closures


We have introduced a new feature that allows you to request the closure of end-user accounts. If you wish to close an end-user account, simply navigate to the Accounts page, click on the respective account ID, and select the "Request to Close Account" button.

Request for Account Closures

By clicking on the button, you will be redirected to your email account with the account information automatically prefilled to initiate closure. Please ensure you provide a reason for the account closure. Note, that accounts with open positions or funds cannot be closed.
