availability

Managing disputes via the API is only available to merchants who can access disputes in the Braintree Control Panel.

You can only accept disputes that have a status() of OPEN. If you have already issued a refund for the disputed transaction, do not accept the dispute – instead, submit file or text evidence of the refund.

Java
Result<Dispute> result = gateway.dispute().accept("a_dispute_id");

If the dispute is successfully accepted, the result will be successful. Otherwise, check for validation errors.

Java
if (result.isSuccess()) {
  // dispute successfully accepted
} else {
  System.out.println(result.getErrors());
}

If the dispute can't be found, it will throw a NotFoundException.

Arguments
disputeId required, string

The unique dispute identifier. You can only accept disputes that have a status() of OPEN.
