API – Activating a Loan


Within LoanPro's Loan Management System, loans have both an activated and a non-activated state. You can activate a loan either via the UI or through the API, which is explained in this article.

When you first create a loan, it isn’t activated by default. This means that the loan values aren’t being updated daily, and the loan functions as though it’s not aware of dates. For example, if a non-activated loan has a first payment date of October 1, 2021 and today is November 8, 2021, the loan will not know that a payment has been missed.

Non-activated loans are treated differently in other respects as well. For example, non-activated loans will not be included in the credit export. Once a loan is activated, the numbers will be updated every day and will be included in the daily maintenance process.

How to

Loan Activation

You can try this request yourself on our ReadMe page—an interactive API documentation page which lists each of our requests.

Just send a POST request to the following endpoint:


In the endpoint above, you'll need to replace {id} with the loan ID of the specific loan you want to activate. If you don't know the ID for the loan you want to activate, take a look at our article on Finding Loan and Customer IDs. For this particular POST request, no payload is needed.

Your response should read as follows:

"d": {
"activated": true

If the loan in question is already activated, the response will come back as "false" instead of "true".

Inactivate Loan

To inactivate a loan, use the following request:

PUT https://loanpro.simnang.com/api/public/api/1/odata.svc/Loans({id})
