Authentication

From Social ID Developers
Jump to: navigation, search

All Social-ID NOW Restful APIs make use of HTTP Basic for authentication.

Most APIs require authentication through the id/secret pair of a Marketing Account or a Social Login App.

However, some APIs may be used without any authentication. An example is the login/info API, which only requires the Social Login App secret that can be found in the Social Login App settings.

Marketing Account Authentication

Each Marketing Account has its own id/secret pair to access available APIs.

This authentication must be used only on server applications (backend), never on client applications (frontend/mobile).

How to get Marketing Account id/secret pair?

Once you log into the Social-ID Now platform and set up a Marketing Account, access keys can be found in the following URL:

  https://app.socialidnow.com/marketing/apis

Example

  curl --user <api_id>:<api_secret> https://api.socialidnow.com/<path>

Social Login App Authentication

Each Social Login App has its own id/secret pair to access available APIs. In those APIs the information created or retrieved will always be associated with the Social Login App used for authentication.

This authentication must be used only on server applications (backend), never on client applications (frontend/mobile).

How to get Social Login App id/secret pair?

Each Social Login App has an API area where access keys can be found:

https://app.socialidnow.com/marketing/login/apps/<login_app_id>/apis

The App id is in the url (<login_app_id>). The App secret is the "API secret" key.

Example

  curl --user <login_app_id>:<api_secret> https://api.socialidnow.com/<path>

Social Login App Client Authentication

Each Social Login App has its own id/client secret pair to access available APIs. In those APIs the information created or retrieved will always be associated with the Social Login App used for authentication.

This authentication may be used on server applications (backend) or client applications (frontend/mobile).

How to get Social Login App id/client secret pair?

Each Social Login App has an API area where access keys can be found:

https://app.socialidnow.com/marketing/login/apps/<login_app_id>/apis

The App id is in the url (<login_app_id>). The App client secret is the "API client secret" key.

Example

  curl --user <login_app_id>:<api_client_secret> https://api.socialidnow.com/<path>

Wi-Fi API Authentication

Each Wi-Fi Account has its own id/secret pair to access available APIs.

This authentication must be used only on server applications (backend), never on client applications (frontend/mobile).

How to get Wi-Fi API id/secret pair?

Once you log into the Social-ID Wi-Fi platform and set up your account, API credentials can be found in the following URL:

  https://wifi.socialidnow.com/admin/account/edit

Example

  curl --user <wifi_api_id>:<wifi_api_secret> https://wifi.socialidnow.com/<path>
