Social OAuth Connection Manager


The "Social OAuth Connection Manager" is used to set up a connection to social media sites. This connection manager is used within the Facebook Source and Twitter Source components.


Important Note

To obtain Api Keys and Tokens, you will need to first create an app developer account by visiting Facebook and Twitter's developer websites.


Social OAuth connection manager is available for SQL versions 2012 and higher.


As of January 30, 2018, LinkedIn has been separated into its own connection manager due to their OAuth2 connection requirement. Please see LinkedIn OAuth2 Connection Manager for more information.
