    Once completed, an email will be sent, with an activation code to activate the brand new account.

    Figure 03: Form to fill up with activation code.

    When the account is activated, the user will be able to create applications with Latch and access to developer documentation, including existing SDKs and plugins.

    To do so the developer must log on to the Latch website and then access the "Developer area" section (https://latch.elevenpaths.com/www/developerArea), where you can view your applications through the "My applications" section on the side menu.

    Figure 04: My applications section with user's configured applications.

    From the "Add a new application" button, the developer will create a new application, with the specified name, which you want to appear in the end users' mobile application.

    Figure 05: Creating an application. The name will be shown on the mobile app.

    Information about the application is displayed when it is created and part of this data is editable. The basic data that the developer should use when installing the plugin are the "Application ID" and "Secret". In addition the following additional parameters are in place, which the developer may change at any time, that set the characteristics of your application:

    Name: This corresponds to the name of the application that end users see on their devices when they pair the service. They can customize it themselves on their own device if they so wish.

    Image: This corresponds to the application icon that will appear in the end-user's device; its size should not exceed 1MB. It is recommended to be in 24-bit png format without alpha channel, and its proportions are 1: 1.

    2nd OTP factor (One-time password): This is only available to developers with a subscription model other than "Community". It enables the service to also be protected by a password, which is sent to the end user at the time he/she wants to access the service. The OTP setup can be:

    1. Disabled: The option will not appear on the end user's mobile device.

    2. Opt in: The end user may choose to use this option to protect the service.

    3. Mandatory: The end user will receive a password every time he/she wants to access the service.

    Lock latches after request: This is only available to developers with a subscription model other than "Community". This enables the service to be locked automatically once it has been accessed. The Lock latches after request setup can be:

    1. Disabled: The option will not appear on the end user's mobile device.

    2. Opt in: The end user may choose to use this option to protect the service.

    3. Mandatory: The service will be locked automatically once it has been accessed. In the latter case, the "Scheduled lock" option would disappear from the service details view.

    Contact email and Contact phone: These details will be displayed in the notifications that users will receive when there is a fraudulent attempt to access the service or any of its operations.

    Operations: This corresponds to each of the actions included in the service but independent of each other, and that the developer wants to protect with Latch. The number of operations that can be included depending on the model of subscription chosen. In each of the operations, a "2nd OTP factor" (OTP) and an "Lock latches after request" (LOR) can be used. It is not compulsory to create operations and this will depend on the nature of the service to be protected.

    Note: This plugin does not support the use of operations. Tailored implementation through the SDK of the corresponding language must be carried out to add them.

    Once the setup is complete and the changes have been saved, the new application will appear on the list of the developer's applications. This can be edited whenever you want.

    Figure 06: Created application. It may be edited again at any moment.

    1.3 Downloading the plugin

    From the side menu in developers area, the developer can access the Documentation & SDKs section. Inside it, there is a Plugins and SDKs menu. Links to different SDKs in different programming languages and plugins developed so far, are shown.

    Figure 07: Examples of SDKs and plugins available.

    The developer must tap the DOWNLOAD button for this plugin to access its source code from the

    Standard plugins section. A manual on the installation and use of the plugin can also be

    downloaded.

    2 Installing the plugin

    Once the administrator has downloaded the plugin, it has to be added as a plugin in SquirrelMail. Unzip the latch folder from the plugin and place the whole content inside plugins folder, inside SquirrelMail directory structure, just as shown in the figure.

    Figure 08: Unzipping latch folder inside SquirrelMail folder structure.

    After adding the plugin in SquirrelMail, it has to be activated. Open "config.php file with any text editor and add latch to the existing plugins array. If no plugin is active, the array will not be defined, so a new entry has to be created this way:

    $plugins[] = 'latch';

    Figure 09: Activating Latch plugin in config.php file.

    2.1 Configuring the plugin

    Once activated the plugin for SquirrelMail, the user has to set the Application ID and Secret generated in previous steps (see figure 05).

    This information has to be manually inserted into latchConfiguration.php file, within latch folder inside the downloaded plugin. Open this file with any text editor and set Application ID and Secret respectively in the variables:

    public static $applicationId = "";

    public static $applicationSecret = "";

    Administrator has to save the file.
