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 example.com 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:
Create a new account or login your account if you have already registered
Click on Add an app button, set Name for the application on the pop-up window
Copy and paste Application ID into the Application ID field on Magento 2 backend
Use Generate New Password and Generate New Key Pair to get Application Secrets, then insert it into the Application Secret field from the Magento 2 backend
Next, you need connect Microsoft Live and your website by adding your URL in the Platform option.
If for some reason you still can’t manage to create an application for Microsoft Live Login, you can ask for support.
