Generate Token for Web Integration

Required Class: Web API Class

Generating a Token for Web Integration

To use our web integration, you must generate a web token for every instance of the widget you run. You can generate a token with this library by editing the sample code below with your own parameters:
from smile_id_core import WebApi, ServerError
# Initialize
partner_id = "<Put your partner ID here>"; #login to the Smile Identity portal to view your partner id
default_callback = "<Put your default callback url here>";
api_key = "<Put your API key here>"; # copy your API key from the Smile Identity portal
sid_server = <0 | 1>; # Use 0 for the sandbox server, use 1 for production server
connection = WebApi(partner_id,default_callback,api_key,sid_server)
# Create required request parameters
user_id = "<put your unique ID for the user here>"; # Set your unique user_id
job_id = "<put your unique job ID here>"; # Set the unique job_id
product = "<put product name here>"; # Choose one of 'authentication', 'basic_kyc', 'smartselfie', 'biometric_kyc', 'enhanced_kyc', 'doc_verification'
# Generate the web token
response = connection.get_web_token(user_id,job_id,product)
except ValueError:
# some of your params entered for a job are not valid or missing
print("handle ValueError")
except ServerError:
# Server returned an error
print("handle ServerError")
except FileNotFoundError:
# Sent a file which could not be found
print("handle FileNotFoundError")


The response will return a json that contains the following:
"token":"<token string>"
