Welcome to the developer guide

This developer guide contains everything you’ll need to integrate and deploy your application with

How to integrate with

  1. Learn about the process the user will go through to access your application and what steps are involved in configuring your app on the Integration page.

  2. Determine your application needs, like the level of proofing, the user experience decisions your agency will make, and the user attributes that will be requested.

  3. Select between Open ID Connect (OIDC) or SAML implementation protocols.

  4. Configure your app in the sandbox dashboard and start testing! We also have examples of OIDC and SAML apps to get you up and running quickly.

  5. When you are ready to go live our team will help you promote the application to production. We will check against our production checklist to ensure your application is ready for production from an administrative and technical standpoint.
