Login with google+ and Facebook

Hi there,

I'm trying to figure out if it's possible to perform a Facebook connect and a Google + connect with your api.

Anyone know if there is a way to develop such behavior?

Kind regards.

Hi Himanshu and thanks for the feedback. I'm working on an Android game. I've developed a google plus and a Facebook login but I'm having troubles integrating this with App42. Do you know any doc I can follow?

Please have a look on this link, it will help you to understand that how you can easily integrate the Facebook with App42 API's.

For integrating the Google Plus, please follow just simple steps:

  • Create an ACL enabled app from AppHQ Management Console
  • Write a custom code method which will accept access token and unique user id provided by Google Plus
  • Validate access token and check if this access token belongs to same user id using provider REST API
  • If it validates and belongs to same user id, create session id in Session Service using user id and return created session id in response. You have to use Admin Key to create session here. (See this)
  • If it does not validate throw unauthorized exception
  • On client side use this session id in every request using setSessionId method and pass user id as user name wherever it is required.

This will enable auth in your app for Google Plus.

Let us know if it helps.
