After a loan is created, a separate request is made to activate it:

  • An activated loan functions differently than a loan that has not been activated. By default, newly created loans are not activated.
  • Loans can be deactivated, if needed. Deactivating a loan will pause all calculations.
  • Activating a loan is a separate distinction from an active loan status. For more information on the distinction, take a look at our article on the subject.
  • If the loan used in the request is already activated, the response will come back as "false" instead of "true".
  • Activating a loan updates the "active" field within the LoanSetup object that's nested within the Loans entity. An activated loan will have a "active" value of 1 instead of 0.

For an example of how activating a loan works within the UI, take a look at our Activating a Loan article.
