Your organization will need to set up the API integrations with each social identity provider. Because people and organization units come and go, you may want to consider the following options when deciding how to set up your API integrations:

  1. Google, Facebook, and LinkedIn allow you to add more than one administrator for an application integration with their identities. 
  2. Twitter and Microsoft allow only one account to administer the API integration
  3. Yahoo are OpenID providers and you don't need to set an API Key and Secret

Below are instructions for setting more than one admin for Google, Facebook, and LinkedIn. We highly recommend you establish multiple administrators.

If you are integrating with Twitter or Microsoft, be sure to document the accounts you used to set up the initial integrations.  You can send Cirrus Identity the account names you used and we'll keep track of them in case you forget in the future.

Remember that you can access the social provider API consoles by going to the Cirrus Console, choosing the social provider from the icons on the left, and then clicking the link on the right in the API integration instructions window.
