After you follow these steps, your users will see your domain in the Yahoo Authentication window instead of ours.

  1. If you haven’t already done so, create a Proxy URL on your application’s domain. Your Proxy URL should be set up to proxy all GET requests including the query string to: https://api.cloudsponge.com/auth
  2. Sign into the Yahoo Developer Portal with a Yahoo ID.
  3. Create a new project to use the Contacts API. This account must have read access to Contacts. Also, we recommend that you set “Read/Write Public and Private” access to Profiles if you intend to use the contact_owner property.
  4. Set the Callback Domain to your application’s domain. This value must match the host of your Proxy URL and must not include the https:// or any path. For example, if your Proxy URL is https://example.com/proxy, your Callback Domain should be example.com.
  5. Verify your domain with Yahoo.
  6. Record the following values from your Yahoo project: Client ID & Client Secret.
  7. Sign in to your CloudSponge account and Add OAuth Credential from your keys page.
  8. Enter the Consumer Key, Consumer Secret and Application ID that you recorded above and your Proxy URL from step 1 above.
  9. To associate the branding with your site: click Sites, click the Assign OAuth button beside your site and choose the new branding in the Yahoo dropdown.
  10. Submit and test a Yahoo import.
