Verify Identity Keys

The Identity Connector is a simple API provided to Amazon which will be called whenever a shopper scans their Scan Key Code at the JWO gate or when a store associate scans the associate device to identify the shopper while assisting the shopper. The Identity Connector provides an interface between the company's backend identity systems and Amazon’s Identity Gateway. When a shopper scans their Scan Key Code at the JWO gate, Amazon will call the Identity Connector and pass the shopper’s identity key. Once the shopper’s identity is received, the company can verify the shopper’s identity key and decide whether to allow them to shop in the store

Note: In the future, new attributes might be added. We recommend that you structure your code so that it can handle new attributes gracefully



POST /v1/identity/identity-keys

The VerifyIdentityKey API at /v1/identity/identity-keys allows the company to authorize the shopper before allowing them to into the JWO store
