Authenticate using BankID. Depending on the method used the user may need to enter the personal number. 

BankID authenticator allows for three different scenarios:

  • Starting BankID on the same device.
  • Starting BankID on another device.
  • Starting BankID using a QR code. 

Every method needs to be activated through configuration.

Translate userVisibleData by adding keyword "bankid.translated.userVisibleData" to this field and update language files with the keyword and translations.  

On successful authentication, these parameters will be added to the request sent to the connected pipe:

  • userPersonalNumber  - The end user personal number (SSID)
  • userGivenName  - The end user given name
  • userSurName - The end user family name
  • bid_signature - The signature created in the bankID client during the authentication
