Service details for Paper

This section goes into detail about some useful endpoints when integrating with Paper:

Get process

This section describes the final result statuses for Paper in the "Get process" response. For a more general description of how the "Get process" endpoint works, see Service details > Get process and the API reference.

Final result status

Based on Paper's results, the Assure API returns one of the following final statuses in the "Get process" response:

Assure API's final statusDescription
acceptedIt was possible to read the document and verify the information.
inconclusiveIt was possible to read the document but the information could not be verified since the MRZ area was missing or unreadable. Documents without MRZ will never be accepted. They will be inconclusive if the data in the text fields are valid, or rejected if they are not valid. This means, only reading the text fields is not enough to guarantee that the data is valid.
rejectedIt was possible to read the document, but an error was found or at least one verification failed. List of errors is returned in the response.
failedIt was not possible to read the document, since an error prevented the verification from continuing. For example, the end-user may have blocked the access to the camera on their device.
canceledThe verification was cancelled by the end-user.
