Instance Method


Attempts to provide the user-requested credential with no further user interaction.


- (void)provideCredentialWithoutUserInteractionForIdentity:(ASPasswordCredentialIdentity *)credentialIdentity;



The credential identity for which a credential should be provided.


When the user selects a credential identity from the QuickType bar, the system calls the provideCredentialWithoutUserInteractionForIdentity: method to ask your extension to provide the corresponding credential.

Call the context’s completeRequestWithSelectedCredential:completionHandler: method to provide the credential if the extension can do so without further user interaction. If not—for example, because the user must first unlock a password database—call the cancelRequestWithError: method instead using an error with domain ASExtensionErrorDomain and code userInteractionRequired. In turn, the system calls your prepareInterfaceToProvideCredentialForIdentity: method to give your extension a chance to present an interface to handle the needed user interaction.

You can alternatively call the cancel method to indicate other error conditions using one of the codes in ASExtensionErrorCode.
