Before you can implement Gigya RaaS in your CMS, you have to set up the following in your Gigya account:

  1. Make sure that RaaS is enabled for your site:
    RaaS is a premium package that requires separate activation. If it is not part of your site package please contact your Gigya Account Manager.
  2. Set Email to be the Primary User Identifier:
    1. Log into the Gigya Admin Console, go to the Settings page for your site, select Registration-as-a-Service and select Policies or click here.
    2. Set Login Identifier to Email. This will make sure that Email is your site's unique login identifier.
    3. Set Link Accounts Support to All identities. This ensures email uniqueness: if any account in the system uses an email address that has been entered by the user as a login identifier, the user is prompted to link the social network to that account.

  3. Select the Enable retrieving email addresses permission in the Permissions page in the console:
    This permission is required in order to get the user's email as he registers using a social network. This permission is not checked by default.

  5. Edit your screen-sets to mark Email as a required field when completing registration:

    Even though you have specified that Email is the primary user identifier, it may not appear as a required field in the registration dialogs. To make sure, do the following:

    1. Go to the Screen-sets page in the Gigya console.

    2. Locate the Default-RegistrationLogin screen-set and click its UI Builder link.

    3. Go to the Registration Completion screen.

    4. Click on the Email text box in the design canvas to open its settings.

    5. Select the Required checkbox (see screenshot below). A red asterisk should appear next to the Email label to mark it as a required field.

    6. Click the Save button and close the UI Builder window.
