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

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 - Opening an External Application in VKontakte

  1. Log into your VK account and click on the following URL: http://vk.com/developers.php.
  2. Click on 'Create an Application'.

    Note: If you are not signed in to Gigya, please go to http://www.gigya.com/ and sign in.
  2. Press the 'Site Settings' button that corresponds to the domain you wish to configure. You will be redirected to the 'Site Settings' page.


  3. Select 'Providers Configurations' in the Site Settings page.

  4. On the "Providers Configurations" page select VKontakte.
  5. Paste the application ID from phase 1 in the 'API Key' field and the secure key from phase 1 in the 'Secret Key' field.
    Click the 'OK' button and then the 'Save Settings' button (located at the lower right-hand corner of the page).
    Save Settings


That's it, VKontakte's configuration is complete!  Please note that it might take up to 10 minutes for our system to become synchronized with VKontakte.
