Get Started


Install with npm install @investorid/identity-sdk (IMPORTANT : the SDK is not yet publicly available so the command here is not yet activated, it will come very soon)

Then require with:

const IdentitySDK = require('@investorid/identity-sdk');

Load an Identity

The unique identifier of an Identity is its address. To load its data from the BlockChain, you need to instantiate a connection with a BlockChain provider. In this documentation, the test network ropsten will be used. Replace by homestead to target main network (see the BlockChain Providers for more information on different type of network).

const ethers = require('ethers');

const provider = ethers.getDefaultProvider('ropsten');

// instantiate an Identity from its address on a specific network.
const identity = new IdentitySDK.Identity('0xadD92F8Ef0729E969c5a98Ea5740c9b644B362e3', provider);

Use SDK methods to retrieve data

Once the identity is loaded from an address, you can call the methods from the Identity object. Here is a basic one that retrieves all claims of an identity by type.

(async () => {
  const claims = await identity.getClaimsByType(1);

  // Will return the parsed claims of the identity.
