Using the Identity Verification JS SDK

This guide provides information needed to start development using the PRIVO JavaScript Verification API. Client ID and secret are required in order to utilize PRIVO’s APIs.

An Asynchronous Programming Model

This SDK uses an asynchronous programming model in which operations are triggered and then run in the background until they are completed. Upon successful or unsuccessful completion, the operation invokes a callback/webhook function, which is to be provided by the developer, and returns Verification Response objects that include the results of the given operation.

The callback/webhook function should handle the response in an appropriate manner, as determined by the application. Production callback/webhooks must be delivered to secure endpoints. For more information about Callbacks / Webhooks, click here.

Polling can be used to actively retrieve timely responses as an alternative or along-side callback/webhook function. For more information on Polling, click here.
