How to get a Facebook App ID (Facebook API Key)

If you are using at least one of the Facebook related features/page types in your App then you need to set a Facebook App ID (API Key) in App Dashboard > App Settings > Facebook. The features that are related with Facebook are : App Share, Rate & Review, Mosaic, Photo Effect, Sharing, Ratings, Scoreboard and Messenger.

 In order to get a Facebook API Key, you need first to create a Facebook Application on Select "Add a New App" from the "Apps" Menu. 



Select either iOS or Android. At the start you may select one platform only. But later you will be able to enable the Facebook App for both platforms.



Once you select a platform, a quick start screen will (or may) show up. Skip it and select "Create App Id"



Next, you need to input a Name and select a Category. The name of the Facebook App will show up on the device when the user will share a content via the above mentioned features. Leave blank the other fields.



Once you set a name and a Category, select "Create App ID". Go to the "Settings" Tab. Here you need to set an Email address. Then add a platform. Add the platform which reflects your app. If you plan to make an app for iOS and Android, then add both platforms.



iOS. If you add an iOS platform then you need to set a Bundle ID and an App Store ID (iPhone or iPad). You need to enable "Single Sign On" as well.



1) Bundle ID. If your App was at least once submitted for publishing then you may find the Bundle ID in App Dashboard.



If you did not publish the app before then you will have to create a Bundle ID on your Apple Developer account: click here ,step 8. If you do not have an Apple Developer account, you may contact us in a support ticket and we will create one for you. But note that you will then have to publish the app under our Apple account in order for the Facebook App to work. 

You may add multiple Bundle IDs separated by comma in case you plan to use the same Facebook App for other apps.

2) iPhone/iPad Store ID. If you App is published, you may set its Apple ID here. The Apple ID can be found on iTunes Connect under the "About this App section". 

If your App is not yet published, then add the Bundle ID once it is released on the Store.

3) You need to enable "Single Sign On" for each App ID you create. 

* All the other fields need to be left blank.

Android. For Android Platform you need to set an Application Package Name, Key Hashes and enable "Single Sign On".



1) Package Name. If you submitted the App for publishing at least once , you may find the Application Package Name in App Dashboard.



If you never submitted the App (never requested a build) you may then set any package name in this format: com.anyname.anyname. Use lowercase characters, no spaces and no special characters. 

Make sure to use the same package name once you submit the app for publishing: click here , step 9, point 4 .

2) Key Hashes. Use this ID for each Android App: nt9/4S7SokcvsH3x45jRA5udL10=

3) You need to enable "Single Sign On" for each App ID you create. 

* All the other fields need to be left blank. 

Once you are done click save.

In the next step, you need to make the App Public from the "Status & Review" bar. Once you are done, click save.



Next, you need to go to "App Details" tab and configure the "App Center Permissions". Make sure to select "Public" for Default Activity Privacy.



Also, in the "App Details" section, you may add metadata for the Facebook App. This is not required, but recommended. You may add a short description, long description, icons, screenshots, etc. * All the other fields and sections need to be left blank or as they are.
