Verification Results

Review verification results on the MetaMap dashboard


Every time an individual completes a workflow on your application, you will receive a verification result. A verification result will contain the result of each check included in your workflow.

Verification results are available on the Dashboard, via webhook, or via API response depending on your integration type. For all integrations that use our workflows, the verification results will be available on the Dashboard.

Verification Status

When an individual completes a verification with the correct inputs, MetaMap will process these inputs to determine if the individual can be verified or if there are issues with their inputs.

Verification Statuses

  • Verified: Individual passed all the checks, no issues detected
  • Review Needed: Potentially critical issues detected that require your company to review
  • Rejected: We detected a fraud attempt, or the individual cannot be verified for legal reasons
  • Postponed: Some checks are waiting for service recovery, they will be automatically re-triggered

Verification Notes

It’s important to maintain a log of all changes made to an individual's verification as an audit trail for compliance. We offer a dashboard policy that will require your teammates to add a note every time they manually change a verification result’s status on the dashboard.

When you enable this policy, your team can add notes with the reason why a reviewed verification is marked as Verified, Rejected, or Review Needed. You can review all changes made and notes added to a verification result on the verification Page History.

To enable this feature for your team, click on Settings, and under the Account Policies panel, toggle Verification Notes on. Please note that if you enable Verification Notes, Review Mode will be disabled.
