In version 1.38, Flinks Connect have a new design and additional features.
In order to maintain Flinks Connects' backwards compatibility, the new features and parameters are not enabled by default.
This is the default theme for Flinks Connect with the classic menu:

The colourful boxes are disabled by default if the Light Theme is enabled. However, you can enable them again by using the parameter boxLayout=true.
By specifying the parameter consentEnable=true, you will enable the new consent page. With this new optional feature, you can specify to your end-user which information you are asking for consent to be extracted. By default, all possible information is pointed out in the list, but it's possible to narrow down the scope of the consent by using the parameter features.
This is an example of the consent page without the features parameter:
Here’s an example of a consent page with specified Flinks features. In this case, the parameter features=AccountInfo,AccountNumber. In the parameter features the following elements will be available and usable: TransactionHistory, AccountInfo and AccountNumber.
With this new version you will also be able to select one account (only one) to retrieve the information from, rather than retrieving all data across all available accounts. This feature is useful if, for your use-case, you only need one specific account. It will also improve the speed of the data extraction. This feature is enabled if your iframe URL contain the parameter accountSelectorEnable=true.
After being authorized successfully, and before the redirection, this page will present all the available accounts.
Important: using the Account Selector feature will add an additional step to the Authorize portion of your flow:
Among these features, now there are a few set of parameters for small customizations such as Disable Image Header, Enable Institution Selection Filter and Disable Mobile Fixed Height, which are described in our Documentation.
When a cached call is made to retrieve the information, we will return the most up-to-date information for the account that was selected. We will also return cached information for any other accounts for which requests have already been made.
