This operation creates the agreement with NPPA and hence must be invoked only after validating the agreement via the “Validate PayTo Agreement” operation.
It should be invoked immediately once the agreement has been validated successfully and resolved PayID details are confirmed with the user.
Agreement Creation will be successful only if it is performed within 5 minutes post successful validation.
Post successful creation, agreement id (generated by NPPA) which uniquely identifies the agreement will be notified.
Note - AUPM agreements will be ACTIVE only post debtor authorization. By default (if custom expiry duration is not provided via response_requested_by field), debtor will have 5 days to authorise the agreement, post which the authorization request will expire automatically and the agreement will be marked as CANCELLED.
MGCR agreements will be ACTIVE immediately post creation however, payments can be initiated only after 5 calendar days.
