Android SDK (Enhanced Version)


This documentation is for the Enhanced Version, encompassing expanded capabilities and advancements. We strongly recommend testing this version before using it in a production environment.

Getting Started

Latest Version: SDK Version


Device Requirement

  • API level 23 (Android 6.0) or higher
  • Internet connection
  • Camera

Project Requirement

  • AndroidX Support

    • Shufti Pro SDK requires AndroidX 1.0.0 or later. If you haven't switched to AndroidX in your app yet then follow this guide.
  • Enable Java 8

    • Shufti Pro SDK requires Java 8 language features to be enabled in your project. If it is not already enabled, add this to your app/build.gradle file under the android section:
compileOptions {
sourceCompatibility JavaVersion.VERSION_1_8
targetCompatibility JavaVersion.VERSION_1_8



SDK Integration Guide


It’s always recommended to use the updated version

Step 1: Go to root-level setting.gradle in your project and add the following:

dependencyResolutionManagement {
repositories {
maven { url '' } // Add this line


Go to project > android > build.gradle file and add the following

allprojects {
repositories {
maven { url '' } // add this line

Step 2: In build.gradle(Module) enable dataBinding true.

android {
//Rest of your code
dataBinding {
enabled = true

Step 3: In build.gradle(Module) add the following implementation

implementation 'com.github.shuftipro:android-onsite-sdk:$Latest-Version'

You can find latest version from here

Basic Usage


Make sure you have obtained authorization credentials before proceeding. You can get client id or secret key and generate access token like this.


The following code snippet shows how to use the access token in auth object.

  • Access Token

    Make auth object using access token
JSONObject AuthKeys = new JSONObject();

} catch (JSONException e) {


The Shufti Pro’s mobile SDKs can be configured on the basis of parameters provided in the config object. The details of parameters can be found here.

JSONObject Config=new JSONObject();

Config.put("base_url", "");
Config.put("consent_age", 16);
} catch (JSONException e) {

Request Object

This object contains the service objects and their settings through which the merchant wants to verify end users. Complete details of service objects and their parameters can be found here.

JSONObject requestObject = new JSONObject();

requestObject.put("reference", "Unique-Reference");
requestObject.put("country", "");
requestObject.put("language", "");
requestObject.put("email", "");
requestObject.put("callback_url", "");
requestObject.put("verification_mode", "image_only");
requestObject.put("show_results", "1");
requestObject.put("allow_retry", "0");
requestObject.put("show_ocr_form", "0");

//Creating Face object
JSONObject faceObject = new JSONObject();
faceObject.put("proof", "");

requestObject.put("face", faceObject);

//Creating Document object
JSONObject documentObject = new JSONObject();

ArrayList<String> doc_supported_types = new ArrayList<String>();

documentObject.put("proof", "");
documentObject.put("additional_proof", "");

JSONObject docNameObject = new JSONObject();
docNameObject.put("first_name", "Johon");
docNameObject.put("middle_name", "Johsan");
docNameObject.put("last_name", "Livone");

documentObject.put("name", docNameObject);
documentObject.put("dob", "1980-11-12");
documentObject.put("document_number", "19901112");
documentObject.put("expiry_date", "1996-11-12");
documentObject.put("issue_date", "1990-11-12");
documentObject.put("backside_proof_required", "1");
documentObject.put("supported_types",new JSONArray(doc_supported_types));

requestObject.put("document", documentObject);

//Creating Document Two Object is exactly same as document object.
// Add document two to request object like
requestObject.put("document_two", documentTwoObject);

//Creating Address object
JSONObject addressObject = new JSONObject();

ArrayList<String> address_supported_types = new ArrayList<String>();

JSONObject addressNameObject = new JSONObject();
addressNameObject.put("first_name", "Johon");
addressNameObject.put("middle_name", "Johsan");
addressNameObject.put("last_name", "Livone");

addressObject.put("name", addressNameObject);
addressObject.put("proof", "");
addressObject.put("full_address", "ST#2, 937-B, los angles.");
addressObject.put("supported_types",new JSONArray(address_supported_types));

requestObject.put("address", addressObject);

//Creating consent object
JSONObject consentObject = new JSONObject();

ArrayList<String> consent_supported_types = new ArrayList<String>();

consentObject.put("proof", "");
consentObject.put("text", "This is my consent. ");
consentObject.put("supported_types",new JSONArray(consent_supported_types));

requestObject.put("consent", consentObject);

} catch (JSONException e) {


Shufti Pro’s mobile SDK can be initialised by using the given method and passing auth, config and request object as the parameters.

Shuftipro shuftipro = Shuftipro.getInstance();
shuftipro.shuftiproVerification(requestObject, AuthKeys, Config, MainActivity.this,
new ShuftiVerifyListener() {
public void verificationStatus(@NonNull Map<String, ?> responseSet) {




The SDK receive callbacks on termination, whether after the request completion or if the journey is left mid-way. The call backs are received in

 new ShuftiVerifyListener() {
public void verificationStatus(@NonNull Map<String, ?> responseSet) {
// Handle callback responses here

The complete list of callback events can be found here.

Callback Handling

All the callbacks can be handled inside the client’s calling activity. The responses and callback handling can be seen below.

On SDK Completion

// Verification accepted callback
else if(responseSet.get("event").equals("verification.declined")){
// Verification declined callback

On SDK Unauthentication

// Verification unauthorized callback. This event occurs when the auth header or its parameters are invalid.

On SDK Error

// This callback is returned in case the permissions are declined by the end user.
else if(responseSet.get("event").equals("request.timeout")){
// This callback is returned in case request took too long and is timed out
else if(responseSet.get("event").equals("verification.cancelled")){
// This callback is returned when verification is cancelled midway by the end user
else if(responseSet.get("event").equals("request.invalid")){
// This callback is returned if the request parameters are incorrect.
else {
// Some error has been occured during the verification process


ShuftiPro supports a set of customisation options that will influence the appearance of the mobile SDK.

UI Customisation

To customise the color scheme of the entire ShuftiPro mobile SDK, as well as the text and background colors of the widgets, you can utilize the following keys within the config object.

JSONObject Config=new JSONObject();

Config.put("base_url", "");
Config.put("button_text_color", "#XXXXXX");
Config.put("button_primary_color", "#XXXXXX");
Config.put("button_secondary_color", "#XXXXXX");
Config.put("heading_color", "#XXXXXX");
Config.put("sub_heading_color", "#XXXXXX");
Config.put("theme_color", "#XXXXXX");
Config.put("icon_color", "#XXXXXX");
Config.put("background_color", "#XXXXXX");
Config.put("stroke_color", "#XXXXXX");
Config.put("shuftipro_light_icon", false);
} catch (JSONException e) {


Shufti Pro offers users the capability to customise the SDK text according to their preferred language. Merchants can modify the SDK language by specifying the language code in the country parameter within the main request object, such as "language": "en". List of all languages are mention here

SDK size

The complete size of Shufti Pro's android SDK is 5.5 MB.
