To use Onfido identity verification in your Operation, you must modify your CAS configuration as described in this article.
NOTE: if you operate a Standalone CAS server,
expose TCP port 7743 (inbound) in your firewall.
You must have a FQDN (Fully Qualified Domain Name), an IP alone is insufficient!
Choose an option: Option A: If you choose to use the GB Cloud Onfido account, select that option.
Onfido is a paid service.
Option B: If you want to create your own account with Onfido, you’ll need to setup your account with them to acquire the necessary API key.
You’ll need a verification website with this option. Now you face two more choices:
create your own website conforming to the guidelines found
here on our Github page. Change your AML/KYC settings
Set your Registration requirements to “
Nothing. Direct customer to identity verification service via SMS”: Choose the Autoregister type:
After Onfido processes your customer at the BATM, any newly proven Identity will be added to one of these two categories:
Registered, or Not Registered. Disabled Enabled Save the AML/KYC setting! How Onfido works at the BATM:
Your customer chooses Registration during a transaction.
Their (required) phone number is collected.
Your customer will be sent further instructions via SMS (from Onfido). The link expires in 90 minutes.
They click through and submit the requested documents.
They’re notified of the results via SMS.
Registration procedure on CAS:
If the Autoregister option is enabled, and the customer is approved, then a new Registered Identity is automagically created.
If Autoregister is disabled, or Onfido has trouble with any of the submitted documents, then a new “Awaiting Registration” Identity is created.
Messages to your customers can be set in your Terminal’s Custom Strings:

If you use a Standalone CAS, and the SMS link steers you to a blank page, please check your configuration.
/batm/config/hostname must be present
and contain your server's domain name: 1
su -c 'hostname > /batm/config/hostname'
If you know your domain name, and wish to enter it specifically (recommended), use:
su -c 'echo your.host.name > /batm/config/hostname'
Registered when auto-registration is enabled.
When auto-registration is disabled, the Identity becomes: Awaiting Registration
