This is a developer-centric introduction to get started with HelseID integration.
First, get your product owner or similar to read this (Norwegian). Some non-technical stuff has to happen before your application or API can go into production. These actions can be performed while the application is developed.
Read up on the protocols OpenID Connect and OAuth! You can find some information elsewhere on this site, but if you google the protocols there is a lot of excellent introductions floating around. Okta has a good one. HelseID is fully compliant with the protocols.
If you have issues, we have a Slack-channel where we provide support. Please send a mail to firstname.lastname@example.org and ask to get access to the channel #ext-helseid.
When your job is complete, and you want to launch your application in production, HelseID might want to perform a code review of the integration. This depends on your application, and what kind of information it secures.
It's a good idea to contact us as soon as your development is complete to determine whether a review is necessary.
