/get_available_properties

Returns a list of configured providers for an application. The providers call is similar, but only returns providers configured for an application. This call is used if you are using custom code for Social Login instead of using the Janrain JavaScript implementation.

There are no required parameters or authentication to use for get_available_providers.

Accepted Content-types

  • application/x-www-form-urlencoded
  • multipart/form-data

This endpoint includes the following methods:

  • POST


POST

Authentication

This endpoint supports Basic authentication. To create an authentication string, combine your API client ID, a colon (:), and your client secret into a single value. For example, if your client ID is abcdefg and your client secret is hijklmnop, that value would look like this:

abcdefg:hijklmnop

Next, take the string and base64 encode it.

For example, on a Mac, you can base encode the string using this command:

echo -n "abcdefg:hijklmnop" | base64

If you’re running Microsoft Windows, you can encode the string by using a Windows PowerShell command similar to this:

[Convert]::ToBase64String([System.Text.Encoding]::UTF8.GetBytes("abcdefg:hijklmn"))

The resulting value (e.g., YWJjZGVmZzpoaWprbG1ub3A=) should be used in your authentication header.

If you are making API calls using Postman, select Basic Auth as your identification type, then use the client ID as the username and the client secret as the password.

Make sure that your API client has the all the permissions (for example, the right to read user profile information) needed to complete the API call.

Base URL

The base URL for this endpoint is your application domain followed by /api/v2; for example:

https://educationcenter.rpxnow.com/api/v2

You can find your application domain in the Social Login (Engage Dashboard) on the Settings page:

Running Code Samples Using Postman

The Janrain REST API code samples are written using Curl, but they can easily be run from within Postman. To use one of our code samples in Postman:

  1. Click the Copy to Clipboard button located directly beneath the code sample
  2. In Postman, click Import to display the Import dialog box.
  3. In the Import dialog box, click Paste Raw Text, and then paste in the copied code. The Import dialog box should look similar to this:

  4. Click Import, and the Curl command will be converted to a format that can be run from within Postman. All you need to do now is configure the command to work with your Janrain implementation.

Query Parameters
