Direct issuance

Direct issuance means that you use a direct API call to create a signed verifiable credential, and then share it with its intended holder.

Step 1: Create

MATTR VII currently supports direct issuance of the following credential profiles:

Currently Mobile Credentials can only be issued via the OpenID4VCI protocol, and not via a direct API request.

Step 2: Share

Once a credential is created, you can share it with its designated holder via various communication channels, depending on the credential profile and your specific use case:

  • Compact and Compact Semantic Credentials can be formatted as a QR codePDF document, Apple or Google digital pass. Once formatted, use your preferred communication tool to share them with the intended owner.

  • Web Credentials can be encrypted and sent directly to the intended holder's digital wallet.
