Types that use FileEvidence


Calls that use FileEvidence


If an uploadEvidenceFile call is successful, a unique identifier of this evidence file will be returned in the uploadEvidenceFile response payload. This unique fileId value is then used to either add this evidence file to a new evidence set using the addEvidence method, or to add this file to an existing evidence set using the updateEvidence method.

Note that if an evidence set already exists for a payment dispute, the getPaymentDispute method will return both the evidenceId (unique identifier of evidence set) value, and the fileId (unique identifier of a file within that evidence set) value(s).
