Where is the Facebook API Key?

Where is the Facebook API Key?

Hi guys,

Doing a first time install, and I've created the app on FB Developers but I can't find the Facebook API Key...

Any help would be great- kind of missing something obvious here and can't search the forums for API Key (too short)

Thanks
Cody

Cody,
Sorry for the delayed response. All of the keys are displayed in the Facebook Developers area. You can see the specific screenshot at the bottom of the configuration page (for the whole Facebook application stuff) here:

Hope that helps you find it, but if not, or you're running into other issues, just let us know!

Re: Where is the Facebook API Key?

I know Facebook put up a post about the new developer interface, but unfortunately, it looks like it's rolling out because we're still seeing the older interface:
http://developers.facebook.com/blog/post/518/

However, in the picture at the top of that post, I can easily see the App ID and Application Keys. I'm assuming the Secret key is there somewhere as well. Hopefully, you can see a similar window with the same information.

Once one of our accounts is upgraded, we'll be updating our configuration guide with the new details and pictures, but right now, I simply can't see what you're seeing.

Hope that helps, and sorry for the troubles,
Alex

Well, FYI, now
App ID = API Key

Re: Where is the Facebook API Key?

Very interesting to know. We know that the API Key (or App ID, depending on how you look at it) is no longer required. We've been hesitant to remove it from our parameter list just in case it's functionality gets added back in later.. but if FB is removing it, we likely will in the next release too current/smile

Thanks for the info, and sorry for the confusion!

Re: Where is the Facebook API Key?

Claudio,
You have to create a Facebook Application to get an App ID and Secret Key. You can follow the instructions on how to do so on the page below. Once you do that, you'll have the keys you need to make JFBConnect work.

If you have any questions, or need any other help with integration, just let us know!
