Authorisation history page

The Authorisation History page allows you to search and view historical authorisation information. An authorisation is initially visible only on the Recent Authorisations page. After a delay of up to 48 hours, the authorisation becomes visible on the Authorisation History page. For a period of time, the authorisation is visible on both the Recent Authorisations and Authorisation History page. To prevent the authorisation switch database from growing too large, after a period of time, the authorisation is purged and is no longer visible on the Recent Authorisations page, but continues to be visible on the Authorisation History page.

  An alert is displayed if the search returns more than 10,000 results. The page will only show the first 10,000 lines. The download will contain all entries.
