Broker Questions

In addition to the questions listed in the Master Question Set, you may have worked with your account team to define a set of Broker Questions. This is a question set that defines your specific risk appetite and include additional business data necessary to integrate with your existing system.

All question codes in the broker question set are prefixed with the tenant code provided to you by your account manager. This is usually a common word associated with your company identity and different from your tenant ID used in the API endpoints. For example if your tenant code was acme, you might have question code called acme_business_name in your broker question set.

When starting a new application via the create application form endpoint, you can use a combination of question codes from your broker questions and the master question set to prepopulate answer_values for one or more of questions.

NOTE: Some broker questions may supersede questions in the MQS and should be used in their place, An example would be acme_business_name in place of mqs_business_name). Your specific set of broker question codes may vary from those below. Refer to the documentation provided to you by your account manager.
