Personal Token SCA#

When making a request to an SCA (strong customer authentication) protected endpoint, Wise returns a 403 Forbidden HTTP status code. SCA is required on some operations. Refer to Wise documentation | Strong Customer Authentication & 2FA for details. It is disabled when using test endpoints.

If SCA is required, Wise returns an error similar to below:

This request requires Strong Customer Authentication (SCA). Please add a key pair to your account and n8n credentials. See

To enable signing a token you need to create and add a public and private key. Add the public key to Wise in user profile settings.

To generate an RSA key pair:

$ openssl genrsa -out private.pem 2048 
$ openssl rsa -pubout -in private.pem -out public.pem
With the generated keys, add them to n8n and Wise:

  • Add the content of the public key public.pem to your Wise user profile settings.
  • Add the content of the private key private.pem to your n8n Wise Credential under Private Key (Optional).
