Configuring certificates


This document will help an implementer configure a certificate (template and QR code) for a health event such as vaccination. This section includes configuring:


The DIVOC platform provides API services for generating digitally verifiable QR code-based vaccination certificates. The API for certificate generation has 6 sections:
  1. 1.
    PreEnrollmentCode: This section is linked to the 'dose' in the vaccination section to uniquely identify an event. For example, beneficiary registration number (R101) and dose number (1) as (R101-1) will be used to identify the first dose event uniquely. Similarly, beneficiary registration number (R101) and dose number (2) as (R101-2) will be used to identify the second dose event uniquely.
  2. 2.
    Recipient: It contains information about the beneficiary.
  3. 3.
    Vaccination: It contains details about the vaccination event such as name, batch, and vaccination date.
  4. 4.
    Vaccinator: It contains details about the vaccinator.
  5. 5.
    Facility: It contains details about the facility where beneficiaries will get vaccinated.
  6. 6.
    Meta: It contains additional information, which is not part of the QR code, such as the number of past doses taken.
