Social login is popular among customers due to a faster registration process (requiring almost no additional information), and you can save the time of remembering all your accounts. However, before creating a social login in Magento 2, you have to connect to the API of other social networks such as Google, Facebook, Yahoo, Instagram, Pinterest, etc. Today, we will show you how to configure Yahoo API in Magento 2.
When entering Yahoo, you need to create an external application to connect your website to Yahoo API. Then, application ID and secret (Client ID and secret or API ID and Secret), or application credentials, are all that we need. With this external application, your website will be linked to API. And these credentials play an important role in making Yahoo users get access to your website.
To Configure Yahoo API, let’s follow these steps:
1. First of all, let’s get access to //developer.yahoo.com/apps and sign in to start to configure Yahoo API in Magento 2.
2. After signing in, you have to click on “Create an App”!
3. Fill in all the needed information such as the Application Name, Description, Callback Domain and Home Page URL. A Callback Domain is an IP address, host name or a domain name of your website. In API Permissions, choose Profiles (Social Directory) then choose Read/Write Public and Private. After that, click “Create App” – the blue button lying at the bottom of the page.
4. After creating the application successfully, you are provided with a Client ID and a Client Secret. What you need to do now is only to copy and paste them into Yahoo Connector setting in Magento 2 back-end interface as an admin.
