Getting started (original API)

Getting Started
Our sample applications provide full stack implementation examples to get you started quickly.

In summary the process is as follows:

  • Step 1: Your web application will need to authenticate with the DirectID using oAuth
  • Step 2: Once authorized you will need to make an API request to retrieve a user session token
  • Step 3: You will need to initialize the Widget on your page
  • Step 4: Optionally you can style the Widget using our theming guide
  • Step 5: Optionally you can utilize the available javascript events to allow for interaction between the Widget and your page

Utilizing Your Data

API Integration

The DirectID RESTful API gives you raw access to data provided by your users who have completed the DirectID Widget experience on either a hosted page or in your application.
The API allows you to use the provided data for identity verification and to supplement your decision making processes.

With response types in either JSON or XML it is possible to integrate the DirectID with any tech stack capable of making HTTPS requests.
