Testing RealMe login with second factor mobile - SMS Watcher

For an online service using RealMe two factor login - in your own authentication or for assertions, we have the SMS Watcher tool that allows testing in the ITE environment with multiple logins without requiring access to a large number of mobile phones. The tool captures the content of the SMS message.

  1. Complete your test RealMe login by adding a mobile phone [PNG, 93 KB] for extra security.  Use the prefix 02885 from the drop box and enter a random mobile number. After creating a login you are presented with the security check page [PNG, 79 KB].

  2. Use the following URL for the SMS Watcher for the ITE environment. https://www.ite.logon.realme.govt.nz/sms(external link) - this displays a page such as this example [PNG, 38 KB].

  3. Copy and paste the code (circled in the example [PNG, 38 KB]) and enter it into the security check page [PNG, 62 KB]

Each time a txt code is required, the SMS watcher page will need to be refreshed. 

Every login created needs a unique mobile phone number using the 02885 prefix.

Testing RealMe assertion - verified test identities and test addresses

The pre-production testing environments for the identity verification service (IVS) and the address verification service (AVS) have the same functionality as the live versions, and consequently test cases can only be created by following the same verification process. As an integrating organisation cannot create test users for testing against the assertion service ITE environment, test users have been created in advance by the RealMe team - contact the integration team to obtain the positive and negative test cases document.
