Authorisations = Mandates
The authorisation object in Salesforce is used to store Direct Debit mandates (or the equivalent of a mandate for the particular scheme in use).
No required fields exist on the Authorisation object. Optional address fields can be populated if necessary, which will pre-fill the payment page when the authorisation is processed.
The following statuses are available on the authorisation object:
Pending - The authorisation has been submitted to GoCardless, but has not yet been submitted to the bureau.
Submitted - GoCardless has submitted the authorisation to the appropriate bureau, and is waiting for a response.
In force - The authorisation has been confirmed and is valid.
Cancelled - The mandate has been cancelled at the request of the payor, or at your request.
Failed - The mandate is not valid / no longer valid and cannot be used to take payments.
Expired - The mandate has expired, and can no longer be used to take payments.
