  • The Date of Birth on the document meets the age requirement
The base ruleset will return a REVIEW when:

  • One or more of the target attributes do not match the document.
The base ruleset will return a FAIL when:
  • The document is not valid
  • The document is expired
  • The Date of Birth on the document does not meet the age requirement

If you do not see a rule set that you would like to use -- please just ask. We can always create a new rule set for your business purpose.

Test Keys

Use the test_key attribute to test the service. When the test_key is provided the system will return a known canned response (regardless of the image submitted) and these transactions are free of charge.
test_key
description
dcams_enhanced_pass
Will return a PASS action result
dcams_enhanced_fail_age
Will return a FAIL action result with a DOCUMENT AGE CHECK FAILED detail on the initial query
dcams_enhanced_fail_not_valid
Will return a FAIL action result with a DOCUMENT NOT VALID detail on the initial query
dcams_enhanced_fail_expired
Will return a FAIL action result with a DCOUMENT IS EXPIRED detail on the initial query
dcams_enhanced_fail_not_verified
Will return a FAIL action result with a DOCUMENT NOT VERIFIED detail
dcams_enhanced_facematched
Should be used with the selfie query to get a face match success response. Use any failure key above to get the fail response.
If you are using one of the matching rule sets and want to force a REVIEW then use the dcams_enhanced_pass case and change the input target attributes to something other than the target returned.
For example, the test case's first name is LOUISA, so to get a FIRST NAME DOES NOT MATCH THE DOCUMENT issue just change the target's first name to something other than LOUISA.
