Facebook Auto-Post Access and Authentication

Brenden Kehren asked on February 3, 2016 00:10

Has anyone got the Facebook auto-post to work in Kentico v8.x or v9.x? I'm having an issue with the permissions Facebook is requiring and not being able to fill out the data Facebook is requiring. See screenshot below. When I follow the directions provided by Kentico to connect to Facebook (specifically #7 and #9) and items to my submission , I'm stuck at this screen adding notes to the permissions I am requiring.

Doesn't seem these are even valid any longer. Any ideas on what to do from a Kentico 8.2 or 9 standpoint and simply auto posting?

Hi Brenden,

It seems that FB changed their policy once again and if you grant your app with the read_insights permissions, they want to know exactly how it is going to be used. Firstly, keep the "Integrates Facebook Insights for an app, Page or domain into a third-party analytics tool" option selected. Then you need to write exactly how a user gets to the Insights tab of the Facebook application in Kentico. Then you will need to record a video screencast showing the process of using Insights in Kentico (the Facebook application -> Insights tab). Finally, you will need to create a user account for FB employee to log into Kentico and review it. As strange as it sounds, this is the newest FB policy.

You can´t post anywhere on Facebook without authorizing. If you want to post "as Page", you need to authorize a Page admin with the "publish_pages" permission and use a Page Token. You can´t get a User or Page Token without authorization, and of course you can´t automate the authorization process.
