How to configure Instagram API

Instagram requires that you create an external application linking your website to their API. Application id and secret (also sometimes referred as Consumer key and secret or Client id and secret) are what we call an application credentials. This application will link your website to Instagram API and these credentials are needed in order for Instagram users to access your website.

These credentials may also differ in format, name and content depending on the social network.

To enable authentication with this provider and to register a new Instagram API Application, follow the steps:

Step 1
