Direct API integration

We've added documentation for a new authorisation flow you can use as part of a direct API integration. In a direct API integration, you previously had to use the /v3/payments/{id}/authorization-flow endpoint to start the sequence of requests and responses that authorised a payment.

You can now use the authorization_flow parameter when you create a payment to start the authorisation flow. You provide the same information in. the authorisation_flow parameter as you do in the /v3/payments/{id}/authorization-flow endpoint.
