DIVOC 3.0 Release Features

Version release date

  • September 21, 2022

Release summary

With this release, the DIVOC platform can now generate different types of verifiable credentials. It is no longer restricted to vaccination-specific verifiable credentials.


A list of the common terms used in this document:

  • Verifiable credentials (VCs) represent information found in physical credentials, such as birth registration and driving license, as well as objects that have no physical equivalent, such as ownership of a bank account. VCs are typically QR codes whose information can only be unlocked by verifiers (for example, a medical council registration certificate with a QR code). When a digital document (for example, a lab test report) has a normal QR code, anyone can read all the information inside the QR by using widely available software on the internet. Such software can read the QR code and then replace it with another QR code with different information. Whereas the information in a verifiable QR code cannot be replaced as the original data or information cannot be changed without a “private key.”

  • Issuer: Refers to an issuing authority who can issue claims about a particular entity or individual that can be validated. An issuer gathers the information that needs to be contained in the VC from the entities and sends it across to DIVOC through tenant software. Example: Medical Councils.

  • Tenant: Refers to any source system of issuers linked to the DIVOC platform to issue VCs. Examples: Council Software, University software, etc.

  • Source systems: The tenant software that interacts with the DIVOC platform to issue VCs.

  • Schema: A schema is essentially a template that tells the issuer the content, type, and description required for an attribute that needs to be part of the VC. For example, a schema can be as follows with multiple rows for other parameters:

Field nameTypeDescriptionMandatory

Registration no.


This is the registration number issued to a health professional


New features


APIs for tenant and schemas

Multiple tenants can now create and manage schemas through the platform.

APIs for tenant and schemas

A single tenant can create multiple schemas required for issuing VCs through the DIVOC platform.

Ability to update the schema

This will give you the capability to update schemas that are already created.

Service to generate and send only QR code (SVG) with provided dimensions

Issuers can fetch QR codes through the DIVOC platform and this can be shared with the beneficiary directly or can be embedded on the certificate template.

Services to update a certificate

We have added the capability to update/modify content on already generated certificates.

APIs for revocation and suspension

An issued certificate may need to be revoked/suspended due to validity expiry, issuance of a new certificate, or violation of terms and conditions. With this release, issuers can revoke and suspend certificates that are already issued.

Notification services

The beneficiaries (holders of the VC) will receive an SMS when the certificates are generated.

Enabling multi-lingual certificate

We have added the capability to create and issue certificates in multiple languages.

Enhancements from previous platform release


Add support in DIVOC to use S-RC in async mode

The DIVOC platform has been updated for the services to work in async mode to avoid any data loss during the exchange of high volumes of data.

Modifications in the response codes for error messages*

Error codes have been defined and included in the response along with their corresponding error messages.

Modify Keycloak services for tenant management services

Configured Keycloak services to support the creation of multiple tenants.

Upcoming features/enhancement


Verification portal

This will enable verifiers to check the authenticity and validity of VCs issued from different issuers by scanning the QR codes through an interface.

UI for tenant onboarding portal

An interface through which source system administrators can log in to the DIVOC platform and connect it with the source system.

UI for tenant multiple schema creation

An interface through which source system admins can create and manage different schemas required for the issuance of VCs.
