The official Verified First API allows you to initiate, order, and view results for background checks, drug screens, verifications and more.
The XML gateway (API) provides access via the Internet and XML messaging to a variety of background screening
data products. The API consists of an XML schema for formatting screening data product requests and a gateway to
which formatted requests are submitted and from which formatted responses are retrieved. As a security measure,
all requests and responses are transmitted over HTTPS using 128-bit encryption.
The client sends, via an HTTP post, an XML request for a screening product to the gateway. The product is a named
configuration of available searches, such as credit, criminal, driving records, and references. The request contains
authentication credentials, information indicating which product and searches are being requested, and the necessary
applicant data to process the request. The gateway validates the request for correctness and completeness. Errors
will be reported in an XML response with an “Error” status and no order ID. If there are no errors, the gateway
returns an XML response with a non-error status, an order ID, and a URL to view the report. The gateway will
proactively notify the client, via XML, of status changes in the background screening report, or the client can query
the gateway for status information.

The following is a list of historical changes that were made to this asset. Typically, once an API is published on ProgrammableWeb.com, the data we keep about that asset gets updated over the course of its life. For example, the endpoint or home page of the documentation might change. As a means of enforcing the integrity of our data, every time a non-trivial change is made to the data we keep about an asset, we require the entry of some changelog text before that change can be saved. This way, we have a great audit trail of all activity surrounding the asset. For each asset, the changelogs begins with the moment an asset is approved for publication on ProgrammableWeb. If you spot an error in our data and believe that a record needs to be updated in some way, the ProgrammableWeb team would very much like to hear from you at firstname.lastname@example.org
