    • App icon (image that is 1024x1024 pixels in size)
    • Privacy Policy URL (page where you describe your own privacy policy)

Step 13

Within Recollective, the  Configuration tab allows restrictions to be imposed on the use of the identity provider and it determines how unrecognized user accounts should be handled.

  • Under Role Usage, select which Recollective user roles should be permitted to use Facebook as their identity provider. For example, switch off Panelists if Facebook should only be available for to administrative roles.
  • If Facebook will be reserved for administrators, a Visibility section will appear. Admins will have to provide their email or username on a login form before the Facebook integration will appear but you can use the visibility option to have Facebook appear immediately to all site visitors.
  • Under Account Handling, an option is provided to control how Facebook-authenticated users that are new to the Recollective site should be handled. If enabled, Recollective will attempt a match by email address between the external Facebook account and any existing Recollective accounts.
  • Note that it is not possible to automatically add administrator accounts to Recollective via the Facebook integration given it is a consumer service.
