[Facebook Connector] Publish Instagram posts
Forge component by OutSystems R&D
Application Type
Traditional Web

Greetings all,

I am wondering if OAuth2_Token.AccessToken ("AccessToken" output from "OAuth2_Token" action) is the access token required for using Instagram API.

The access token I am talking about: https://developers.facebook.com/docs/instagram-api/guides/content-publishing#access-tokens

Example of use (access token represented as "{ig-user-id}"): https://developers.facebook.com/docs/instagram-api/guides/content-publishing#publish-photos

I am trying to sign in to my own Facebook/Instagram account via my app, and then publish Instagram posts via an action. Therefore, I am referring to this guide: https://developers.facebook.com/docs/instagram-api/guides/content-publishing


Hi YS, 

Although I'm not familiarized with this connector, one article that perhaps can give you some insights about Instagram posting through OutSystems is this one

Please give it a look, perhaps it can be helpful. 

Best regards,

Thanks Paulo! I'll read it before I mark as resolved, thanks!

Sure! You're welcome. 

Hopefully, it will help you solve your issue.


I got everything to work!

To answer my own question:

OAuth2_Token.AccessToken is passed into https://graph.facebook.com/v9.0/me/accounts?access_token={accesstoken}, in order to get the {facebook-pageId}, followed by the {InstagramId} that you will then use to publish Instagram posts (:
