Release notes for Q1 2024

  • Updated

What’s new in MindBridge?

MindBridge’s Transaction Risk Analytics (“TRA”) — formerly “MindBridge Flex” — are transforming the way financial professionals gain insight into uniquely complex datasets. The Q1 release this year offers several expansions to the platform and updates to the MindBridge API — plus, new must-have control points for TRA that empower your team to navigate dynamic financial and operational landscapes confidently, so you can test, monitor, understand, and respond to your complex business-critical data on an ongoing basis.

Note: We’re working on big things in 2024 and beyond! If you or your team are interested in participating in pilot projects or research that will shape the future of the MindBridge platform, reach out to your Customer Success Manager (“CSM”) or Implementation Advisor today.

New capabilities for Q1

MindBridge releases several updates a year with both new and improved capabilities and features.

Integrate your rules-based controls into MindBridge

TRA now supports the creation of rules-based control points so you can work with MindBridge to customize your analysis based on your existing rules-based tests and methodology. As your organization evolves, having the ability to create new control points will allow you to scale your efforts and incorporate MindBridge into your control activities without sacrificing accuracy or efficiency.

Find pairs of reversing entries

“Reversal Pairs” is MindBridge’s newest TRA algorithm, and can be customized to detect pairs of entries that appear to reverse each other within the context of a given category (or combination of categories), so you can surface, track, and manage reversing entries for different use cases in your dataset. Plus, with an adjustable window size, you have control over the timeframe of data available for pair matching.

Reversal Pairs can be added to any TRA configuration. Reach out today to find out how your team can benefit from this new algorithm.

Surface new vendors in your dataset

MindBridge’s newest control point for TRA, “New Vendor”, compares the current and prior period data to detect instances of vendors that are present within the current period but are absent from the prior period.

By isolating new vendors in your dataset, you can examine unusual vendor patterns, surface and test your most risky vendors, and validate that each new vendor is legitimate. Leverage New Vendor to evaluate the strength of your internal controls and gain greater assurance around reducing the risk of error and fraudulent activity.

New Vendor can be added to any TRA configuration that deals with vendor data, and will run against the data as long as prior period data is provided. Reach out today to find out how your team can benefit from this new control point.


Refer to the API reference document for additional details and guidance on the updates below.

API changelog

New API changelog records updates made to the MindBridge API, such as new or updated endpoints, deprecated objects, and more.

Analysis Types

Added the Analysis Type entity, which describes the features of an analysis, as well as the source types used as part of the analysis. This replaces the table of analysis types in the "Analysis" section of the API reference documentation.

  • New GET /analysis-source-types/{analysisTypeId} endpoint, which returns an analysis type identified by its analysisTypeId.
  • New POST /analysis-types/query endpoint, which queries analysis types given a filter.

Analysis Source Types

Added the Analysis Source Type entity, which describes the required column mappings and steps when ingesting a source with this type. This replaces the table of analysis source types in the "Analysis Source" section of the API reference documentation.

  • New GET /analysis-source-types/{analysisTypeId} endpoint, which returns an analysis source type identified by its analysisSourceTypeId.
  • New POST /analysis-source-types/query endpoint, which queries analysis source types given a filter.
  • MAC_code field label changes to Custom_code if you are using an account grouping that is not based on the MindBridge Account Classification (“MAC”) code system. This is identified by the mindbridgeFieldNameForNonMacGroupings field, which describes which MindBridge field name to use instead.


  • New POST /analyses/engagement-roll-forward endpoint, which allows you to roll a completed analysis forward into another existing engagement.


  • New POST /libraries/ endpoint, which allows you to create a new library.
  • New PUT /libraries/{libraryId} endpoint, which allows you to update a library.
  • New DELETE /libraries/{libraryId} endpoint, which allows you to delete a library.
  • New fields added to the Library model, including system and archived, which are queryable.

MindBridge platform improvements

TRA analysis dashboards

  • The View by menus on the Risk overview dashboard have been updated for clarity. Now the “Amount” menu is only available if more than one amount type is present in the analysis results.

  • Updated the date format used in TRA visualizations.

General ledger analysis dashboards

  • Updated default selected date ranges to “Last two months” on the Risk monitoring dashboard in general ledger analyses.
  • Resolved an issue that prevented the Risk monitoring dashboard from displaying data for the prior period in a general ledger analysis that uses the periodic time frame and the Not-for-Profit with Funds library.
  • Resolved an issue that prevented the Risk monitoring dashboard from generating populations with keyword search terms in a general ledger analysis that uses the periodic time frame.
  • Populations created on the Data table dashboard must now use unique names.
  • Resolved a filtering issue for populations using the “OR” statement on the Transactions view of the Data table dashboard.
  • Improved the legibility of the graph on the Trends dashboard by limiting the number of selectable accounts to a maximum of 10.
  • Resolved an issue that prevented the selection and deselection of accounts on the Trends dashboard.
  • Resolved conflicting selectable filter options on the Trends dashboard.
  • Adjusted colors and text for improved legibility in the Risk by account graph on the Risk overview dashboard.
  • Resolved an issue preventing the “Page” column on the Annotations dashboard from showing the correct analysis dashboard source.
