Connecting Brightspot to a Facebook app


To post to your Facebook account from Brightspot, you need to connect Brightspot to an existing Facebook app.

Note
Perform the steps in this section from a Brightspot instance running over HTTPS. Facebook does not allow connections from sites running over HTTP.

To connect Brightspot to a Facebook app:

  1. In Brightspot, switch to the site from which you will be connecting to Facebook. For details, see Switching sites.
  2. Click menu > Social > Services.
  3. In the Services widget, click New Facebook Service. The New Facebook Service widget appears.

  4. In the New Facebook Service widget, do the following:

    1. In the Name field, type a name for the service.
    2. In the App ID and App Secret fields, paste the values from your Facebook console.
    3. Click Save. Your Brightspot instance is now connected to a Facebook app, and a URL with two query parameters appears in your browser's address bar.
    4. In your browser's URL, copy into a text editor the value for the query parameter id. This is your Facebook's service ID within Brightspot, and you'll need this value when establishing redirect URIs in your Facebook app's settings.
