Initial setup

This section will show you how to retrieve your API keys and set up an automation threshold.

1.1 - Retrieve Your API Keys

In order for your application to communicate with Passbase, you have to register on our dashboard and retrieve your API keys from Settings > API Access as shown below.

Here you will find your publishable API key, used for client side integrations, and your secret API key, used to retrieve the personal data of your customers. You'll be using your publishable key most of this documentation.

Key Type

Description

Publishable

The API key you will use to integrate the Passbase client side libraries in your application (e.g. the iOS, Android or Web SDK).

Secret

The API key can be used to retrieve your customers' Personal data and to manage your Passbase company profile programmatically. Make sure you keep this API key secret!

1.2 - Setup Your Acceptance Threshold

To get the most out of Passbase you should setup your scoring thresholds in theSettings > Thresholdssection of the dashboard. These will determine whether your Users are automatically accepted or rejected into your application based on the documents they provide.

The suggested configuration for most use cases is 70% - 85% as shown below:
