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

As of March 1st, 2018, Foursquare will no longer support TLS 1.1, as a result older devices and platforms may no longer function properly, specifically clients on Android 4.4 or lower will no longer be able to interact with the Foursquare Places API.

 

Phase 1 - Opening an External Application in FourSquare

  1. Log into your FourSquare account and click on the following URL: https://foursquare.com/developers/register
  2. Fill in your application name.
  3. In the "Web addresses" box:
 O  ptio nal: If you are planning on configuring a domain alias (CNAME), replace 'socialize.gigya.com' with your alias subdomain (CNAME value). i.e. http://[YOUR-ALIAS-SUB-DOMAIN].yoursite.com/
Note: please do not use https.
  1. In the next screen, copy the 'Client ID' and 'Client Secret' codes.

 

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

  1. Open the Providers Configuration page of Gigya's Console.

  2. Select Foursquare from the list of providers.

  3. Paste your keys (the 'Client ID' and the 'Client Secret' from the end of phase 1) in the corresponding places:


     
  4. Select Secure redirects only to allow only HTTPS redirects from Foursquare.
  5. Click Save Settings at the lower right-hand corner.

 

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