Scenario description

When onboarding users you can remove the need for error prone manual onboarding steps by using Verified ID with A10TIX account onboarding. Verified IDs can be used to digitally onboard employees, students, citizens, or others to securely access resources and services. For example, rather than an employee needing to go to a central office to activate an employee badge, they can use a Verified ID to verify their identity to activate a badge that is delivered to them remotely. Rather than a citizen receiving a code they must redeem to access governmental services, they can use a Verified ID to prove their identity and gain access. Learn more about account onboarding.

  1. Add the request URL and body to your application or website to request Verified IDs from your users.

    Note

    If you are using one of the sample apps, you'll need to replace the contents of the presentation_request_config.json with the request body obtained in Part 1. The sample code overwrites the trustedIssuers values with IssuerAuthority value from appsettings.json. Copy the trustedIssuers value from the payload to IssuerAuthority in appsettings.json file.

  2. Be sure to replace the values for the "url", "state", and "api-key" with your respective values.
  3. Grant permissions to your app to obtain access token for the Verified ID service request service principal.

Test the user flow

User flow is specific to your application or website. However if you are using one of the sample apps follow the steps outlined as part of the sample app's documentation.
