Description

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

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 the Application in LinkedIn

  1. Enter the following link: https://dev.xing.com/ and log in via "My Apps".
     
  2. Press "+Creat App".

     
  3. Edit the app name via "Change app name".


     
  4. By now you'll get a default Consumer key & secret, you can test with.  However, you'll need to complete the registration for production usage.
     
  5. Press "Get a production key"
     
  6. Fill-in the different sections: Access rights, App details, Developer details, Company details & OAuth details, as follows:
    • Access rights: choose the relevant access rights your app will request. Xing advises to only choose the minimal rights you require.

       
    • Developer and company details: please make sure that the address is correct and valid, as Xing sends the pin code by mail.
       
    • App details: please set "Type of app" field to be "Web":

       
    • OAuth details: enter the callback domain or mark that you don't want to use it. Gigya's default app doesn't use a callback domain.


       
    • Confirm the terms and conditions, and press the "Get a production key" button.

       
  7. Xing needs to approve now the content you have entered. After which, Xing sends 2 security pins: one by email and one by mail. Once they were received, enter them to get Xing's production key & secret.
  8. Copy the "API Key" and "Secret Key" (you will need to paste them in Gigya's website, as described in phase 2).

Phase 2 - Configuring Xing'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. Open the Providers Configuration tab and select Xing.


     
  4. Paste your keys (the "API Key" and the "Secret Key" from the end of phase 1) in the corresponding places:

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

 

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