Do you know if this plugin is compatible with an external reader? This external reader is connected to a mobile device through a cable. One example of an external reader is Eikon Touch.

Thank you very much for your help.

Hi Alexandra,

From what I know, this plugin handles inbuilt mobile hardware only, but let's see what OutSystems team have to say about it. 

In your case as you are using external fingerprint hardware with usb connection to phone, you may need to create your own custom plugin with an SDK which should be provided by that specific hardware vendors for variety of platforms.


Hi Alexandra,

As, Miguel says this plugin handles inbuilt mobile hardware only,

We have Create our custom plugin with the SDK or find any plugin available for your external scanner device, 

I faced the same Issue, finally found a plugin with my plugin's, then my task is little bit easy for me to achive.
