How to configure Microsoft Live API

Microsoft Live Login 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 Microsoft Live Login API and these credentials are needed in order for Microsoft Live Login 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 Microsoft Live Login API Application, follow the steps:

Step 1

First go to Microsoft Live to create an app

Step 2

Create a new account or login your account if you have already registered

Step 3

Click on Register an application button, set Name and enter the Redirect Url of the website

Step 4

Copy and paste Application ID into the Client ID field on Magento 2 backend

Step 5

To get the Client Secret, log into Certificates & Secrets > New client secret > Add a client secret. Copy and paste Value into the **Client Secret*8 field on Magento 2 backend

If for some reason you still can’t manage to create an application for Microsoft Live Login, you can ask for support.
