In Touch Id module, users can login using Touch ID only but if add another alternative method using passcode in this module then users can log in easily. This login features already available in native code. So customer request this features as a alternative login method.


  1. Shak Hossain 2016-03-18 *Here is the exact use case:* - For all the iPhone users who have the Touch ID enable on their phone: - Whenever user launches the App, it should prompt the user for Touch ID. - If the Touch ID authentication fails after 'n' or 3 number of re-tries, we should have the user to enter his device passcode.
  2. Shak Hossain 2016-03-18 *Customer Sample Code:*
       reason : L("touchId.loginMessage"),
       callback : callback
       //where callback is below function -
       function touchAuthCallback(obj) {
       log.trace("[login] >> [touchAuthCallback] >> TouchId callback execution started...");
       if (obj.error == undefined) {
       if (obj["success"] === true) {
       log.trace("[login] >> [touchAuthCallback] >> Calling doClick to initiate Login...");
       function() {
       } else {
       log.error("[login] >> [touchAuthCallback] >> err:", obj.error);
       Alloy.Globals.touchIdOnResume = false ;
       Alloy.Globals.touchIdInAction = false ;

  4. Hans Knöchel 2016-03-20 As discussed on Flowdock, I'm pretty sure it's not exposed by iOS (for now). Anyway, if they can provide a native example that does it, we'd be able to solve that easily.
  5. Hans Knöchel 2016-12-28 I got something. More soon.
  6. Hans Knöchel 2016-12-28 Fixed as part of TIMOB-20547. Example:
       // Or: AUTHENTICATION_POLICY_BIOMETRICS for the default behavior
       // Check device support and  authenticate like before ...
