Is there a way to solve the error that happen at the point where a request for facebook Id is executed?

Hey there,

Not sure which action from the connector you are trying to use, but you can edit them to handle specific errors like this, for example.

Does this help you? If not, could you please give me a bit more context on which connector action you are trying to use and which error you are trying to cover?

Best regards,

This is the error. How may I solve it? I'm using the Facebook Connector Demo.

Hmm, have you configured your Facebook app to require appsecret_proof? According to this question, you might need to disable it, since the connector doesn't add these parameters itself (although it could be done using an extension).

Do you explicitly need this validation on your project?

Hi afriscope pix,

First you have to create app in facebook from where you will get OAuth & Secret key. This key is used to validate & authentication purpose from your oustsystem application.

Afterwards, use method to authorize & authenication to get access token from facebook before using user_get method. If you receive valid access token then only you are able to use further method or api of facebook in our application.
