The Context API provides means to list available JSON-LD contexts of the Platform of Trust.

The contexts define the semantic meaning of the keys in the responses from the APIs. When creating a new identity, choose which type of identity to create by choosing the correct context. The context will then define the attributes the identity can have.


  • Aids to choose the correct context in determining identity type while creating a new identity.
  • Aids to define attributes an identity can have.
  • Aids to list all supported contexts.
