Quick Start

This Quick Start guide walks you through a demonstration of making your first PhoneCheck.


PhoneCheck is a mobile-first product. The purpose of the Quick Start guide is to provide a demonstration walkthrough of the functionality in action. The steps of creating the PhoneCheck, navigating to the check_url and seeing the PhoneCheck result will all be performed programmatically either with in the mobile application or on the application server.

Quick Start steps

The following steps show how to install and setup the tru.ID CLI, create your first tru.ID Project, create your first PhoneCheck and run a check using your mobile phone.

  1. Before you begin: Install Node.js
  2. Install the tru.ID CLI:
    $ npm install -g @tru_id/cli
  3. Once the CLI is installed, setup the CLI with your credentials:
    $ tru setup:credentials {YOUR_CLIENT_ID} {YOUR_CLIENT_SECRET} EU
  4. With the tru.ID CLI installed and configured, create a new Project and follow the prompted instructions:
    $ tru projects:create brown_coral_242
  5. Navigate into the newly created project directory:
    $ cd brown_coral_242
  6. Turn off WiFi on your mobile phone
    A PhoneCheck requires an HTTP request to be made over a mobile data connection
  7. Run your first PhoneCheck full workflow
    $ tru phonechecks:create --workflow
  8. Scan the QR code shown in the console using your mobile phone.
  9. The tru.ID CLI will show the tru phonechecks:create command result.

Congratulations! You've just completed your first of many phone checks.
