Main Features

  1. User Management - Gigya’s User Management 360 is a complete solution for managing a new generation of user data that encompasses social identity data, social graph connections, behavior data, and traditional profile data. Gigya module for Drupal provides two main packages:

    • Social Login - The Gigya module can be used as an external authentication system, allowing users to sign up to your site using an increasing number of platforms, such as Facebook, Twitter, Google, LinkedIn, Yahoo, and more. As with standard registration, new Drupal user accounts will be created in the process. See our documentation for additional information and advanced implementation options: Social Login.

    • Registration-as-a-Service(RaaS) - An end-to-end user management system package. The platform offers a comprehensive cloud-based user registration system that supports Social Login, allowing sites to maintain a unified user database for both social and traditional site authentication. Learn how to implement RaaS within Drupal. For additional information and advanced implementation options: Registration-as-a-Service.
  2.  Share - The module includes different tools to enable your users to share content and site activities to social networks. The Share Bar plugin displays a bar of buttons, next to whatever content you wish, for sharing this  content to social networks and bookmark destinations. Sharing an action lets the site owner configure rules to automatically prompt the user with a share dialog, once he performs a certain share-worthy activity on your site, encouraging the user to post his action to social networks. The activity can be for example, posting a story, or submitting a comment, etc. See our documentation for additional information and advanced implementation options: Sharing Content.

  3. Comments - Gigya's Comments plugin enables site users to post comments and have discussions about published content on your site. These comments can be easily shared with social networks. By default, enabling Gigya comments will replace Drupal’s comments with Gigya’s. Gigya’s comments are configured to also be saved as Drupal comments, so the plugin can be easily be switched-off - while still retaining the comments. Please notice that Comments settings must be configured on Gigya’s site, before they can be used in your Drupal site. Login to www.gigya.com to configure these settings. 

  1.  Reactions  - The Reactions plugin allows users to react to content in your site and share their reaction to social networks. The Reactions plugin is built out of one or more buttons, arranged in a bar. Each button represents a "reaction" to the content, such as 'LOL', 'Amazing', etc. Once a user clicks on a reaction button, a share dialog will pop up to suggest to him to share his reaction to social networks. 

  2. Gamification (GM) - Gigya's Gamification is a social loyalty and rewards platform that can be easily embedded in your website, increasing site engagement and making your users' experience more enjoyable. 

  3. Activity Feed - The Activity Feed plugin allows users to see the latest actions on a site, according to who performed the actions.
