3. Create a link token

You will need to create a link token that is needed by the frontend sdk to start the process of a user connecting to a specific financial institution

  1. Use the client_secret to open the institution selection screen. When a user selects an institution, the onInstitutionSelected function is triggered. This function provides an institution_id and a callback that receives a link token.
  2. Pass the institution_id to your backend and use the create link token endpoint to create a link token.
