After collecting the individual's information, you can verify the person using an identity document and camera. This type of verification is called Identity Verification (IDV). Submit the person for a IDV verification using this API.
- POST /v1/person/:id/idv
- "id": "idv-5db17028-1e1d-428a-b9d9-e8d4c5058d2a",
- "url": "https://withpersona.com/verify?inquiry-id=inq_8ZtVdVnMCNanbUT5MvFygMeU",
- "status": "notStarted",
- "createdAt": "2021-12-14T22:12:44Z",
- "modifiedAt": "2021-12-14T22:12:45Z"
Invoke the URL in your application to complete the identity verification. This URL is used to open a hosted web-view experience, where the user will take a selfie and upload their ID for verification.
You can also re-submit the person for a IDV by passing the personId in this API. If they have an existing inquiry, you can either resume it:
- "action": "resume"
Or if needed, you can create a new inquiry:
- "action": "new"
