This page is a step-by-step guide for the process of opening and setting up an external Google+ application as part of the Gigya Setup process.

You may also read our Google+ FAQ.

Clients with sites defined under Gigya's European data center should replace domain references to (http:// or https://) "socialize.gigya.com" (or "socialize.us1.gigya.com") with "socialize.eu1.gigya.com". To verify site location contact your implementation manager.
Domain references are defined in Gigya's dashboard, externally in social network app definition pages, and when using Gigya's SDKs to set the domain (in particular the APIDomain field in class GSRequest). 

Phase 1 - Setting up a Google+ Application
