👉 The Get Activation Code request is used to obtain an activation code without needing to interact with the POS application manually. An activation code is required for manual card terminal activation through the Viva Wallet account.
The client app must implement a mechanism to send messages using Android intents and URI calls and to receive the result in a custom URI callback.
- Get Activation Code request originating from the client app to trigger the activation code request.
- Get Activation Code response originating from the card terminal app to return the result of the activation code request.
Get Activation Code request
For a typical Get Activation Code request, the client app must provide the following information:
The above information elements must create a URI call, i.e.
Intent payIntent = new Intent(Intent.ACTION_VIEW, Uri.parse( "vivapayclient://pay/v1" + "&appId=com.example.myapp" + "&action=getActivationCode" + "&callback=mycallbackscheme://result")); payIntent.addFlags(Intent.FLAG_ACTIVITY_NEW_TASK); payIntent.addFlags(Intent.FLAG_ACTIVITY_EXCLUDE_FROM_RECENTS); startActivity(payIntent);
Get Activation Code response
After executing a Get Activation Code request, the Card Terminal App responds with a response result to indicate if the request was successful or not, along with the activation code (if the request was successful).
The result is received as a URI in the callback activity intent:
Uri result = getIntent().getData();
The table below summarizes the contents of an approved response.
A Get Activation Code response result for an approved transaction looks as follows:
mycallbackscheme://result?status=success&message=Activation code retrieved.&action=getActivationCode&virtualId=88932C88A4C04051B42594AF99B5FA4D&activationCode=734888368
