Using OAuth Authentication
OAuth requires the authenticating user to interact with Facebook using the browser. The adapter facilitates this in various ways as described below.
Embedded CredentialsSee Embedded Credentials to connect with the adapter's embedded credentials and skip creating a custom OAuth app.
Instead of connecting with the adapter's embedded credentials, you can register an app to obtain the OAuthClientId and OAuthClientSecret.
When to Create a Custom OAuth AppCreating a custom OAuth app is optional as the adapter is already registered with Facebook and you can connect with its embedded credentials. Create a custom OAuth app in the following scenarios:
- If you need to request additional permissions over the adapter defaults.
- If you want to change the information displayed when users log into the Facebook OAuth endpoint to grant permissions to the adapter.
Creating a Custom OAuth App
See Creating a Custom OAuth App for a procedure.
