Parameters

The most common way to set up the hosted flow is to specify a template-id.

Optionally, you can connect new inquiries to an account. To connect the inquiry to an account, specify either referenceId or accountId. You cannot specify both.

🚧

Special characters in URL parameters

Be sure to escape your values if you are passing non-alphanumeric characters in your parameters. For example, values including whitespace or symbols like + need to be escaped. In JavaScript, this can be done with encodeURIComponent.

🚧

Deprecated attributes

Deprecated attributes are planned to be removed or replaced in the future. They will continue to work in the immediate future.

ParameterRequirementDescription
template-id, inquiry-template-id, or inquiry-template-version-idRequiredThis template ID corresponds to a pre-set configuration and determines how the flow is customized.

See Am I using Dynamic Flow Templates? for more information on the differences between Templates and Dynamic Flow Templates.
theme-idPass a specific theme to be used.
environment-idThe Persona API environment on which to create inquiries.
environmentDeprecated. Use environment-id instead. The Persona API environment on which to create inquiries. For sandbox and production, use sandbox and production respectively.
reference-idYou can generate and provide a unique ID which we will associate with the inquiry. The identifier can be used to monitor user progress in newly created inquiries. Inquiries with the same reference ID will be grouped under a single account.
account-idID of the account to associate newly created inquiries with.

redirect-uriWhen the user successfully verifies their identity, we redirect back to this URI. The callback should expect a GET parameter named inquiry-id that references the completed inquiry. If no redirect-uri is specified, then the success page shown to users will not have a continue button.

Resuming an inquiry

To resume an existing inquiry instead of creating a new one, use the inquiry-id parameter. Do not pass a template-id when resuming the inquiry.

If the inquiry already has submitted verifications, you need to specify a session-token as well. You can generate a session token with the /api/v1/inquiries//resume endpoint.

ParameterRequiredDescription

session-tokenWhen resuming an inquiry with a pending status, you must also generate a session token from the server-side API.
