Registration result codes

After the result of the operation is returned, your frontend needs to react accordingly. The result contents enable you to decide whether the registration is successful.

The result has the following members:

The member indicates whether the authentication is successful.
The enumeration reports the success code or the various error codes for the session.
A short human-readable message about the result of the transaction.
A transaction token only present if the authentication is successful. Use the token to verify whether the authentication is indeed executed by your Authentication Cloud instance, see Status endpoint.
Only present in case of an error when it provides a more verbose description of the failure.

All the registration error codes are in the form of error-10XX.

On success, the user is considered logged in. For security reasons, check the validity of the response independently of the registration process, by verifying the token using the Authentication Cloud API introspection endpoint. On failure, handle the error as in the following example:

 if (result.success) {
// result.code.statusCode ->
// "success-registration" is a successful registation,
// result.message contains more information in a human-readable format.
else {
// Handle the error, you can find more details in result.code and result.message
alert("There was a problem: " + result.code.message);

Example success result object:

"success": true,
"code": {
"statusCode": "success-registration",
"message": "Successfully registered WebAuthn credential."
"token": "eyJhbGciOiJIUzUxMiJ9.eyJpc...ifQ.suBhl...cX-lE0_FRKrTDcLA"

Example failure result object:

"success": false,
"code": {
"statusCode": "error-1001",
"message": "Failed to create WebAuthn credential."
"message": "Error while trying to create new credential. NotAllowedError: The operation either timed out or was not allowed. See:"
