Custom Credentials

Desktop Authentication with a Custom OAuth App

Follow the steps below to authenticate with the credentials for a custom OAuth app. See Creating a Custom OAuth App.

Get an OAuth Access Token

After setting the following, you are ready to connect:

  • OAuthClientId: Set this to the App Id in your app settings.
  • OAuthClientSecret: Set this to the App Secret in your app settings.
  • CallbackURL: Set this to the Site URL in your app settings.
  • Scope (optional): Set this if you need to customizie the permissions that the add-in requests.
  • AuthenticateAsPage (optional): Set this to a page name or Id to make requests as a page. The page must be managed by the authenticated user.
When you connect the add-in opens the OAuth endpoint in your default browser. Log in and grant permissions to the application.

Requesting Additional Permissions

You may find while using the add-in that Facebook returns an error stating your app does not have permissions to do a certain action. To resolve this, you will need to generate a new OAuth access token with the required permissions. Set the Scope property in the authentication step. You can find a list of available Facebook permissions here: http://developers.facebook.com/docs/authentication/permissions/.
