In order to make the above code work in your environment, please note:

  • The API key in the sample will only work on http://localhost/...
  • To load the page from your domain, modify the value of the "APIKey" field in the code to your own Gigya API Key. A Gigya API Key can be obtained from the Site Dashboard page on Gigya's website. Please make sure that the domain from which you are loading the page is the same domain name that you used for generating the API Key.
  • If you are using https, be sure to further adjust the JS API url to:<Your_API_Key>.
