Sift Science Java API

The official Java bindings for the latest version (v205) of the Sift Science API .

Requirements

Java 1.7 or later.

Setup

Maven

<dependency>
    <groupId>com.siftscience</groupId>
    <artifactId>sift-java</artifactId>
    <version>2.4.0</version>
</dependency>

Gradle

dependencies {
    compile 'com.siftscience:sift-java:2.4.0'
}

Other

Download and install the latest Jar from the releases page. This zip file contains the Jar files of the libraries that sift-java depends on (Gson, OkHttp, and Okio), so those will have to be installed also.

You may also generate the distribution Zip from source.

$ git clone git@github.com:SiftScience/sift-java.git
$ cd sift-java
$ ./gradlew distZip   # Zip file saved to ./build/distributions/

How To Use

Create a SiftClient object with your API key. SiftClient is thread safe and can be used to access all supported APIs.

SiftClient client = new SiftClient("your_api_key");

Send Events

API Docs

All request types can be built using the overloaded client.buildRequest. Here's an example for the $create_order event type.

// Build the request object.
EventRequest createOrderRequest = client.buildRequest(new CreateOrderFieldSet()

        // Required fields ($api_key and $type) are automatically filled in by the library,
        // although $api_key can be overridden on a per-request basis.
        .setUserId("bill_jones")

        // Supported fields.
        .setOrderId("ORDER-28168441")
        .setUserEmail("bjones@altavista.com")
        .setCurrencyCode("USD")
        .setAmount(115940000L) // $115.94
        .setBillingAddress(new Address()
                .setName("Bill Jones")
                .setPhone("1-415-555-6041")
                .setAddress1("2100 Main Street")
                .setAddress2("Apt 3B")
                .setCity("New London")
                .setRegion("New Hampshire")
                .setCountry("US")
                .setZipCode("03257"))
        .setExpeditedShipping(true)
        // More supported fields documented at:
        // https://siftscience.com/developers/docs/java/events-api/reserved-events/create-order

        // Custom fields.
        .setCustomField("digital_wallet", "apple_pay")
        .setCustomField("coupon_code", "dollarMadness")
        .setCustomField("shipping_choice", "FedEx Ground Courier")
        .setCustomField("is_first_time_buyer", false)
);

// Send the request.
EventResponse response;
try {
    response = createOrderRequest.send();
} catch (SiftException e) {
    SiftResponse errorResponse = e.getSiftResponse();
    // ... handle InvalidRequestException(4xx) and/or ServerException(5xx) subtypes.
}

// Inspect the response.
response.isOk();                // true
response.getApiErrorMessage();  // "OK"
response.getApiStatus();        // 0
response.getHttpStatusCode();   // 200
EventResponseBody body = response.getBody();

Get Scores

Synchronous Scoring

API Docs

To get a score in the response body of an event request, build your event request as usual and then augment the request with a list of abuse types for which you would like scores returned using EventRequest#withScores.

Here's how the $create_order example above can be altered to respond with payment_abuse and promotion_abuse scores.

// Add a list of requested abuse types as an extra parameter.
// The first parameter is the same as in the first example.
EventRequest createOrderRequest = client.buildRequest(createOrderFieldSet)
        .withScores("payment_abuse", "promotion_abuse");

// Send the request. May throw a SiftException.
EventResponse response = createOrderRequest.send();

// Inspect scores.
AbuseScore paymentAbuseScore = response.getAbuseScore("payment_abuse");

You may also invoke the withScores method with no arguments to return scores for all abuse types.

Score API

API Docs

Scores may also be requested separately from incoming event requests. Provide a ScoreFieldSet containing a list of abuse types client.buildRequest to send a request to the Scores API.

// Build the ScoreRequest with a list of abuse types.
ScoreRequest request = client.buildRequest(new ScoreFieldSet()
        .setUserId("bill_jones")
        .setAbuseTypes(Arrays.asList("payment_abuse", "promotion_abuse"))
);

// Send the request. May throw a SiftException.
ScoreResponse response = request.send();

// Inspect scores.
AbuseScore paymentAbuseScore = response.getAbuseScore("payment_abuse");

Labels

Label User

API Docs

To send a label, build a request using a LabelFieldSet;

LabelRequest request = client.buildRequest(new LabelFieldSet()
        .setUserId("bill_jones")
        .setIsBad(true)
        .setAbuseType("payment_abuse")
        .setDescription("The user was testing cards repeatedly for a valid card")
        .setSource("manual review")
        .setAnalyst("someone@your-site.com")
);

Unlabel User

API Docs

Similarly, use an UnlabelFieldSet to unlabel a user.

UnlabelRequest request = client.buildRequest(new UnlabelFieldSet()
        .setUserId("billy_jones_301")

        // Optional abuse type to unlabel for. Omit to unlabel for all abuse types.
        .setAbuseType("payment_abuse"));

Workflow Status

Synchronous Workflow Statuses

API Docs

Similarly to the Scores API, EventRequest objects can also be modified to return a Workflow Status using the EventRequest#withWorkflowStatus method.

EventRequest createOrderRequest = client.buildRequest(createOrderFieldSet)
        .withWorkflowStatus();

Workflow Status API

API Docs

To query the Workflow Status API, create a request with a WorkflowStatusFieldSet.

WorkflowStatusRequest request = client.buildRequest(new WorkflowStatusFieldSet()
        .setAccountId("your_account_id")
        .setWorkflowRunId("someid"));

Apply Decision API

API Docs

To apply a decision to a user, create a request with accountId, userId, and ApplyDecisionFieldSet.

ApplyDecisionRequest request = client.buildRequest(
        new ApplyDecisionFieldSet()
            .setAccountId("your_account_id")
            .setUserId("a_user_id")
            .setDecisionId("decision_id")
            .setSource(DecisionSource.AUTOMATED_RULE)
            .setDescription("description of decision applied")
);

To apply a decision to an order, create a request with accountId, userId, orderId and ApplyDecisionFieldSet.

ApplyDecisionRequest request = client.buildRequest(
        new ApplyDecisionFieldSet()
            .setAccountId("your_account_id")
            .setUserId("a_user_id")
            .setOrderId("a_order_id")
            .setDecisionId("decision_id")
            .setSource(DecisionSource.MANUAL_REVIEW)
            .setAnalyst("analyst@example.com")      
            .setDescription("description of decision applied")
);

To apply a decision to a session, create a request with accountId, userId, sessionId and ApplyDecisionFieldSet.

ApplyDecisionRequest request = client.buildRequest(
        new ApplyDecisionFieldSet()
            .setAccountId("your_account_id")
            .setUserId("a_user_id")
            .setSessionId("a_session_id")
            .setDecisionId("decision_id")
            .setSource(DecisionSource.MANUAL_REVIEW)
            .setAnalyst("analyst@example.com")
            .setDescription("description of decision applied")
);

To apply a decision to a piece of content, create a request with accountId, userId, contentId and ApplyDecisionFieldSet.

ApplyDecisionRequest request = client.buildRequest(
        new ApplyDecisionFieldSet()
            .setAccountId("your_account_id")
            .setUserId("a_user_id")
            .setContentId("a_content_id")
            .setDecisionId("decision_id")
            .setSource(DecisionSource.MANUAL_REVIEW)
            .setAnalyst("analyst@example.com")
            .setDescription("description of decision applied")
);

Get decisions

API Docs

To retrieve available decisions, build a request with a GetDecisionsFieldSet.

GetDecisionsRequest request = client.buildRequest(new GetDecisionsFieldSet()
        .setAbuseTypes(ImmutableList.of(AbuseType.PAYMENT_ABUSE, AbuseType.CONTENT_ABUSE))
        .setAccountId("your_account_id"));

Additionally, this field set supports filtering on results by entity and abuse type(s).

GetDecisionsRequest request = client.buildRequest(new GetDecisionsFieldSet()
        .setAccountId("your_account_id"))
        .setEntityType(EntityType.ORDER)
        .setAbuseTypes(ImmutableList.of(AbuseType.PAYMENT_ABUSE, AbuseType.CONTENT_ABUSE))

Pagination is also supported, with offset by index (from) and limit (limit). The default limit is to return up to 100 results. The default offset value from is 0.

GetDecisionsRequest request = client.buildRequest(new GetDecisionsFieldSet()
        .setAccountId("your_account_id"))
        .setFrom(15)
        .setLimit(10);  

A request will return a paginated response if the number of query results are greater than the set limit. In these cases, the response object will contain a url (nextRef) at which the next set of results may be retrieved. Build a new request from this nextRef, as follows:

GetDecisionsResponse response = request.send();
String nextRef = response.getBody().getNextRef();
GetDecisionsRequest nextRequest = client.buildRequest(GetDecisionsFieldSet.fromNextRef(nextRef));

Decision Status API

API Docs

To query the Decision Status API, create a request with a DecisionStatusFieldSet.

DecisionStatusRequest request = client.buildRequest(new DecisionStatusFieldSet()
        .setAccountId("your_account_id")
        .setEntity(DecisionStatusFieldSet.ENTITY_ORDERS) // or ENTITY_USERS
        .setEntityId("someid"));

To query the Decision Status API for a Session, create a request with a DecisionStatusFieldSet, including a user id.

DecisionStatusRequest request = client.buildRequest(new DecisionStatusFieldSet()
        .setAccountId("your_account_id")
        .setEntity(DecisionStatusFieldSet.ENTITY_SESSIONS)
        .setUserId("a_user_id")
        .setEntityId("a_session_id"));

To query the Decision Status API for Content, create a request with a DecisionStatusFieldSet, including a user id.

DecisionStatusRequest request = client.buildRequest(new DecisionStatusFieldSet()
        .setAccountId("your_account_id")
        .setEntity(DecisionStatusFieldSet.ENTITY_CONTENT)
        .setUserId("a_user_id")
        .setEntityId("a_content_id"));
