HTTP
POST /v2/credentials/web-semantic/{id}/revocation-status
  • id : Replace with the id of the credential you wish to revoke.

Request body

JSON

    "isRevoked": true
}

You can make a similar request with isRevoked set to false to validate a revoked credential.

Response

    "isRevoked": true
}
  • isRevoked : Indicates revocation status for the credential. When true the credential will not be verified as valid.
