Add Yahoo Login to Your App
This guide will show you how to add functionality to your web app that allows your users to log in with Yahoo.
1. Set up your app in Yahoo
Before proceeding, you will need a valid Yahoo User ID. If you don’t have a Yahoo account, you must create one with Yahoo.
Go to Yahoo Developer Apps and click on the Create an App button to launch the app-creation screen. You will be asked for the following parameters:
|Application Name||A friendly name for your application.|
Find your Auth0 domain name for redirects
If your Auth0 domain name is not shown above and you are not using our custom domains feature, your domain name is your tenant name, plus
.auth0.com. For example, if your tenant name were
exampleco-enterprises, your Auth0 domain name would be
exampleco-enterprises.auth0.com and your redirect URI would be
If you are using custom domains, your redirect URI will have the following format:
https://<YOUR CUSTOM DOMAIN>/login/callback.
When done, click Create App to proceed. Once the application is created, Yahoo will show you your Client ID (Consumer Key) and Client Secret (Consumer Secret). Copy these values, because you will use them to set up the connection in Auth0.
2. Create and enable a connection in Auth0
Set up the Yahoo! social connection in Auth0. Make sure you have the Client ID and Client Secret generated in Step 1.
3. Test the connection
You're ready to test your connection.
