How to Build a B2B Login Flow With MitID Erhverv (+ React Code Samples)

MitID Erhverv is a new authentication solution tailored specifically for business use cases. It simplifies user administration, role management, and access control for organizations, enabling employees to act digitally on behalf of their company.

Integrating MitID Erhverv into your existing system doesn't have to be complicated. Criipto Verify lets you build a secure and user-friendly B2B login flow with MitID Erhverv in just a few simple steps. This blog post provides instructions and code samples to walk you through the process.

Let's dive right in!

1. Get a developer account at Criipto and register a Criipto Verify application

All you need to get started with Criipto Verify is to sign up for a free developer account

You’ll get access to a personalized dashboard and will be able to start development right away. You also get unlimited test logins until you are ready to go to production. 

When you have successfully set up your account (by creating your first tenant and domain), you’re ready to create a Criipto Verify application. You can do so in the Applications section of the management UI.

After registering your application, the dashboard will give you the necessary details to configure your application's communication with Criipto Verify.

From the General tab of your application settings, you need: 

  • Domain on which you will be communicating with Criipto Verify.
  • Client ID to identify authentication requests made from your application to Criipto Verify.

Dashboard

In our case, the domain is cool-energy-test.criipto.id, and the client ID is urn:cool-energy-react

2. Integrate Criipto Verify into your application

Let's look at the integration process using a React single-page application example.

First, we’ll install @criipto/verify-react using npm:

ReactDOM.render(
 <CriiptoVerifyProvider>
     <App />
 </CriiptoVerifyProvider>,
 document.getElementById('root')
);

Second, we set up the Criipto Verify SDK by wrapping our application in CriiptoVerifyProvider:

// src/index.js
import React from 'react';
import ReactDOM from 'react-dom';
import { CriiptoVerifyProvider } from '@criipto/verify-react';

import App from './App';

ReactDOM.render(
  <CriiptoVerifyProvider
    domain="cool-energy-test.criipto.id"
    clientID="urn:cool-energy-react"
    redirectUri={window.location.href}
  >
    <App />
  </CriiptoVerifyProvider>,
  document.getElementById('root')
);

*Remember to use your own domain and clientID (available in your Criipto dashboard).

Lastly, we’ll add a login button into our application and enable business logins.

We’ll use the useCriiptoVerify hook and the AuthMethodSelector component to render a login screen, like so:  

import React from 'react';
import { useCriiptoVerify, AuthMethodSelector } from '@criipto/verify-react';
import '@criipto/verify-react/dist/criipto-verify-react.css';

export default function App() {
  const { result } = useCriiptoVerify();

  if (result?.id_token) {
    return <pre>{JSON.stringify(result.id_token, null, 2)}</pre>;
  } else {
    <React.Fragment>
      {result?.error ? (
        <p>
          An error occured: {result.error} ({result.error_description}). Please
          try again:
        </p>
      ) : null}
      <AuthMethodSelector acrValues={['urn:grn:authn:dk:mitid:business']} />
    </React.Fragment>;
  }
}
 

acrValues={["urn:grn:authn:dk:mitid:business"]} ensures that business logins with MitID Erhverv are enabled. You can always include other acr_values if you want to add more eIDs into your application. 

That’s all we need.

Let’s run our React application and try logging in (as an employee!)

* You can easily integrate Criipto Verify with various technologies and third-party identity management solutions: Check our integrations page to find the option that suits your needs. 

3. Test logins with MitID Erhverv 

If you haven’t created a MitID Erhverv test user yet, you’ll have to make one to perform business logins. Check our documentation for detailed instructions – it shouldn’t take more than 5 minutes.

Once you have a test user, you can try logging into this sample application: Choose “Log in with MitID Business”.

We hope this demonstrates just how simple it is to build a B2B login flow with MitID Erhverv and Criipto Verify.
