Want to start using the power of Qualtrics Social Connect in your own applications? Here's a little checklist.
Sign up for Qualtrics Social Connect
If you do not have a Qualtrics Social Connect account already, get in touch with us to get set up as a Qualtrics Social Connect user and create your free trial account.
You will need a user account to register applications and authenticate calls. You need an active account to be able to use monitored data.
Register your application
Go to Applications to register the application you want to build.
The OAuth Authentication guide has more info about the values you need to configure.
Implement OAuth authentication
Authentication of your application and of users goes via the OAuth 2.0 dance. A full explanation of authenticating with Qualtrics Social Connect can be found here.
Know your endpoints
Depending on the type of application you want to build you might be interested in different endpoints. Check which API endpoints are available and which ones might be of use to you. You can use the API Test Console application to test several API calls and see its results.
If you can't find an endpoint that suits your needs. Please contact the support team.
Handling of errors
Rate limits, temporary outages, invalid parameters or deprecated functionality can cause both fatal as non fatal errors. Be ready to handle errors and double check to see your application acts accordingly.
Are you taking the Qualtrics Social Connect API into production in your application? Then we'd appreciate a link back.
