ForgeRock Developer Experience


To create a journey with mobile biometric authentication, you need the following:

  1. The ForgeRock Platform with the WebAuthn nodes (Identity Cloud or AM 7.1 or later).

  2. A mobile device that has biometric authentication, such as Face ID or a fingerprint reader, and the user has registered their biometrics on the device.

  3. An application with the latest native mobile SDK that includes the Biometric Authentication API (v3 or later).

The SDKs can only support the WebAuthn Registration and WebAuthn Authentication nodes when the Return challenge as JavaScript option is disabled.

When this option is disabled, the WebAuthn nodes return a MetadataCallback, which the SDK converts to a WebAuthnRegistrationCallback or a WebAuthnAuthenticationCallback.
