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

Note: If your site is defined under one of Gigya's non-US data centers, replace domain references to (http:// or https://) "socialize.gigya.com" (or "socialize.us1.gigya.com") with "socialize.<DC>.gigya.com". Where <DC> is the region of your Data center (e.g., "socialize.eu1.gigya.com" for European Data center).
Contact your IM to find out the region of your Data center.

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). 

When using any 3rd Party Apps with Gigya, it is important to ensure that you Enable retrieving user contacts from the Permissions page of the Console prior to making your app live. This enables basic username and email retrieval for your users from providers that don't consider this an elevated permission.

Phase 1 - Opening an External Application in Spiceworks

  1. Send an email to makeITsocial@spiceworks.com with:
    • Main Application URL:
    • Callback URL: 
      Paste the following URL in the 'Callback URL' field: http://socialize.gigya.com/GS/GSLogin.aspx
  2. Optional: If you are planning on configuring a domain alias (CNAME), please replace 'socialize.gigya.com' with your alias sub domain (CNAME value). i.e. http://[YOUR-ALIAS-SUB-DOMAIN].yoursite.com/GS/GSLogin.aspx
    Note: please do not use https.

  3. Copy your 'Consumer Key' and 'Consumer Secret' from the email you receive from Spiceworks.

Phase 2 - Configuring Spicework's Application Keys in Gigya's Website

  1. Go to the Dashboard section of Gigya's website.
    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. Paste your keys (the 'key' and the 'secret' keys from the end of phase 1) in the corresponding places:


     
  4. Click the "Save Settings" button (located at the lower right-hand corner of the page).

 

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