Configuring validators

Validators can be tweaked by using the config endpoint. Follow these steps to set up your validator configuration:

  1. Create a POST request to the following url: https://api.validations.truora.com/v1/config
  2. Create a Header named Truora-API-Key and set its value to your API key.
  3. Create a Header named Content-Type and set its value to application/json.
  4. Add a field named validator to the Body and set its value to the validation you wish to configure: either identity-questions, face-recognition, email-verification, phone-verification, or document-validation.
  5. Add configuration fields according to the following table:
