Error recovery: invalid parameters

Some fields, like Last Name are required for on-demand verification. Others, like email are optional.

If an ID provider rejects a validation for missing a field, make sure your request is not missing a field that the verification requires. For example, Socure's emailrisk module requires a valid email field.
