Connect your app to Yahoo!

These steps will guide you through how to create an application with Yahoo! and how to add it as a social connection in the Auth0 Dashboard.

1. Add a New Application

To begin, you need a Yahoo user ID. If you don’t have one (login.yahoo.com or admanager.yahoo.com), you need to create one.

Then, go to Yahoo Developer Apps and click on the Create an App button.

Click the Create an App button

Create an Application Name and select Web Application as the Application Type.

Enter your app data

In the Callback Domain field enter:

https://YOUR_AUTH0_DOMAIN

For the API Permissions make sure to select at least one user data API:

API Permissions

2. Get your Client Key and Client Secret

Once the application is created you will see a Client ID (Consumer Key) and Client Secret (Consumer Secret). Copy these values as you will use them to set up the connection in Auth0.

Get Client ID and Client Secret

3. Set up the Connection in Auth0

In a seperate tab or page, go to the Connections > Social section of the Auth0 dashboard.

Click on the Yahoo! connection.

Enter your Client Key and Client Secret from Yahoo! then click SAVE.

Enter your key and secret

Next click on the Clients tab next to Settings and enable which of your clients will be able to use this connection.

Enable Clients

When finished, click SAVE.

4. Test the Connection

On the Connections > Social page of the Auth0 dashboard you should now see a TRY button with the Yahoo! connection.

Try button

Click on this to test the new connection. This should bring up a confirmation page for the connection:

Connection Approval

If accepted, you should be able to see the It Works! confirmation page that your connection has been configured correctly.

Next Steps

Now that you have a working connection, the next step is to configure your application to use it. You can follow our step-by-step quickstarts or use directly our libraries and API.
