Introducing Setu API playground Check it out ↗

#DigiLocker integration

Setu DigiLocker APIs can be used to fetch documents of your users instantly—with their consent.

Here’s a quick run through of the APIs—

  • Create a DigiLocker request—Create a request to start the user journey, with which you can get user consent and then fetch the document from user’s digilocker. You get an id in response, which you can use to track this request throughout the journey.
  • Get DigiLocker request status—Check status of a request that was created by passing the request id, at any point in the journey.
  • Get list of all docs available—Get a global list of all documents that DigiLocker lets you fetch and the identifiers required to fetch a particular document.
  • Fetch a document—Get the document that the user has consented to share with you, made available as a file URL to download. All docs other than Aadhaar, can be fetched with this API.
  • Fetch Aadhaar data—Fetch Aadhaar document data in JSON format as well as an XML file. The API response is consistent with our OKYC APIs, which aids in replacing OKYC with DigiLocker, for carrying out Aadhaar KYC.
  • Revoke access token—Revoke the OAuth user token, once necessary user documents are fetched.

Additionally, here are the URLs you would need for these APIs—

  • Sandbox—https://dg-sandbox.setu.co
  • Production—https://dg.setu.co
  • Headers—Contact Setu for providing the credentials required to successfully call Setu APIs. This contains:
    • x-client-id
    • x-client-secret
    • x-product-instance-id

#Create a DigiLocker request

Call this API to create a new DigiLocker request. Pass the redirectUrl in the request body.

A DigiLocker account is not mandatory for a user to start this flow. If the user does not have a DigiLocker account, DigiLocker will automatically create an account during the consent journey. User has to sign up by providing their Aadhaar number and authenticate with the OTP sent to Aadhaar registered mobile number.


To sign up for DigiLocker, user should have linked their mobile number with Aadhaar.



Usage of the redirect URL

You have to provide a redirectUrl in the request, which has to be a valid publicly hosted URL—the user gets redirected to this URL after going through DigiLocker Sign in / Sign up and consent screens.

It will also be used by Setu to send back relevant information about a request. By default Setu includes the success flag of the user consent and DigiLocker request id.

  • For a failed user consent, we will send back—<redirectUrl>?success={false}&id={Digilocker_request.id}&errCode={code}&errMessage={message}
  • For a successful signature—<redirect_url>?success={true}&id={Digilocker_request.id}

You can also add custom query params such as session id from your end. You would append this to the provided URL, like so—(redirectUrl)?sessionId=XYZ


Setu has processed your request successfully.

  • The url from the response should be used to redirect your user to Sign in / Sign up and provide consent to access their DigiLocker.
  • Validity of this request in ISO 8601 format timestamp, after which the request is expired and deleted.

#Get list of all docs available

Call this API to get a global list of all documents that DigiLocker lets you fetch and the corresponding meta data for each document.

This list can be very huge and the response can take a few minutes. It is recommended that you store this list on your end for usage in your application.


Consider updating this list of documents only once every month or as needed, as it does not change very often.


Setu has processed your request successfully.


Request
GET /api/digilocker/documents

Response

Each document in the response has the following details—

  • availableFormats is an array that specifies the formats in which the document is made available through DigiLocker.
  • description specifies the name of the document, as given by the document issuer.
  • docType is a short code that identifies the type of the document.
  • orgId is the code of the document issuer.
  • orgName is the name of the document issuer

To uniquely identify a document, both docType and orgId are necessary. Multiple issuers, with their unique orgId, can issue documents which can be of the same docType. A quick example would be driving license being issued by different states—the docType is same whereas the orgId differs.

  • parameters is an array that contains key-value pairs, which specifies the user-specific identifiers required to fetch the document. You can use the description to aid your user, to input information on your UI.

A document can require more than one parameter, as specified by the document issuer.


description key-value pair in parameters array, is only for your information and should not to be passed as an identifier to fetch that document
