iOS 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 release: SDK Version


  • iOS 13.0 and higher
  • Internet connection
  • Latest Xcode Version


  • Integration Sample (Swift): Shufti Pro iOS-SDK


SDK Integration Guide


It’s always recommended to use the updated version and run on physical device to get real results.

If you want to run sdk on simulator use this sdk but only for testing purpose.


Make sure your project contains pod file. If it does not, run pod init command in root of your project directory.

1. Add following pod to your Podfile

pod 'ShuftiPro-Onsite'

2. Please make sure to add the following post-install hook to your Podfile.

post_install do |installer|
installer.aggregate_targets.each do |target|
target.xcconfigs.each do |variant, xcconfig|
xcconfig_path = target.client_root + target.xcconfig_relative_path(variant)
IO.write(xcconfig_path,"DT_TOOLCHAIN_DIR", "TOOLCHAIN_DIR"))

installer.pods_project.targets.each do |target|
target.build_configurations.each do |config|
if config.base_configuration_reference.is_a? Xcodeproj::Project::Object::PBXFileReference
xcconfig_path = config.base_configuration_reference.real_path
IO.write(xcconfig_path,"DT_TOOLCHAIN_DIR", "TOOLCHAIN_DIR"))

if ['Socket.IO-Client-Swift', 'Starscream'].include?
config.build_settings['BUILD_LIBRARY_FOR_DISTRIBUTION'] = 'YES'
config.build_settings['IPHONEOS_DEPLOYMENT_TARGET'] = '12.0'


Application Info.plist must contain Privacy - Camera Usage Description and Privacy - Microphone Usage Description with corresponding explanation to end-user about how the app will use these permissions

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
let authKeys = [
"auth_type" : "access_token",
"access_token" : "xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx"


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.

let configs = [
"show_requirement_page": true
"base_url": "",
"consent_age": 16,

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.

  • Import Shufti Pro
import ShuftiPro
  • Request Object
let requestObject: [String: Any] = [ 
"reference": "Unique reference",
"country": "",
"language": "",
"email": "[email protected]",
"callback_url": "",
"show_results" : "",
"verification_mode": "image_only",
"face": ["proof": ""],
"document": [
"proof": "",
"additional_proof" :"",
"supported_types": [
"name": [
"first_name": "",
"last_name": ""
"backside_proof_required": "0",
"dob": "",
"document_number": "",
"expiry_date": "",
"issue_date": ""
"address": [
"proof": "",
"full_address": "",
"name": [
"first_name": "",
"last_name": ""
"supported_types": [
"proof" : "",
"text" : "my consent note",
"supported_types" :[


Shufti Pro's mobile SDK can be initialized by using the following method and passing auth, config and request objects as the parameters.

let instance = ShuftiPro()
instance.shuftiProVerification(requestObject: "your-request-object", authKeys: "authentication-keys-object",
parentVC: your viewController from where you want to open ShuftiPro,
configs: "configuration-object"){(result) in
print(result) // Callback response for verification verified/declined
let response = result as! NSDictionary
if response.value(forKey: "event") as? String == "verification.accepted" {
// Verified: Do something
} else {
// Declined: Do something


The SDK receives callback events as result, whether the verification journey is completed or left mid-way. The call back is received in following function

shufti.shuftiProVerification(requestObject: dataDictionary, authKeys: authKeys, parentVC: self, configs: configs) 
(result) in
let reponse = result as! NSDictionary

The complete list of callback events can be found here.

Callbacks Handling

All the callbacks can be handled inside the client's calling View/Screen. The response and callback handling code can be seen in the following code snippet

On SDK Completion

let reponse = result as? NSDictionary
if reponse?.value(forKey: "event") as? String == "verification.accepted" {
// Verification Accepted Callback
else if reponse?.value(forKey: "event") as? String == "verification.declined"{
// Verification Declined Callback
else if reponse?.value(forKey: "event") as? String == "request.received"{
// This event states that the verification request has been received and is under processing.
else if reponse?.value(forKey: "event") as? String == "request.pending"{
// This event is returned for all on-site verifications until the verification is completed or timeout.

On SDK Unauthentication

if reponse?.value(forKey: "event") as? String == "request.unauthorized"{
// This event occurs when the auth header is not correct and, client id/secret key may be invlaid.

On SDK Error

if reponse?.value(forKey: "event") as? String == "request.invalid"{
// The request invalid event occurs when the parameters specified in the request payload are not in the correct format.
else if reponse?.value(forKey: "event") as? String == "request.timeout"{
// This will occur if request has timed-out.
else if reponse?.value(forKey: "event") as? String == "permission.denied"{
// This event is returned if the user did not give camera and other permissions to sdk.
else if reponse?.value(forKey: "event") as? String == "verification.cancelled"{
//This event occurs when the end-user does not agree to the terms and conditions and also occur if in-between user cancel verification process.


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

UI Customisation

To customize 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.

let configs = [

"base_url": "",
"button_text_color": "#XXXXXX",
"button_primary_color": "#XXXXXX",
"button_secondary_color": "#XXXXXX",
"heading_color": "#XXXXXX",
"sub_heading_color": "#XXXXXX",
"theme_color": "#XXXXXX",



Shufti Pro offers users the capability to customize 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 iOS SDK is 9.8 MB.
