The integration of this SDK is very straight forward.

1) Inside any HTML page just import the Javascript library before the </body> tag

<script src="https://api.andia.io/web/andiaSdk.min.js"></script>

2) Include the following HTML fragment, to add a button

<div id="containerAndia"></div>
<button id="andiaBtn" type="button"
action="onboarding" >
<div id="labelBtn">Onboard me</div>


customerID . Your customer API_KEY , mandatory (we provide these credentials) user_hash Optional: Needed in the Onboarding process, only if you have configured a Webhook as a method of callback. This user hash is only to identify the origin of this request.

face_id Mandatory in the Validation process, this face_id is returned in the Onboarding of a specific User. Then when a Selfie validation is required, this is the way to validate a user against her face_id. This parameter is empty when we call an Onboarding a new user.

action Mandatory: "onboarding" or "validate"

onboarding Perform a new user Selfie Onboarding and get the face_id of this new user.
validate Perform a selfie validation, of an existing user (with an existing face_id), previuosly onboarded. Call this method on Password Recovery, validate transactions, or verify that the user is on front of the webcam.

3) Callback

To get the result of the Selfie Validation or the Selfie Onboarding, just implement the javascript function callbackAndia(success, data), just after the import of the javascript library.

<script src="https://api.andia.io/web/andiaSdk.min.js"></script>
function callbackAndia(success, data){
console.log("## success ##", success);
