Now your application has been created.

After it is reviewed by Spotware, you will be contacted by email, either confirming the approval or requesting further details about your application.

Activating Application

To activate your application first make sure that the description field is not empty and it provides a good amount of info about your application like what your application will be used for.

Adding Redirect URIs

Once your application gets activated by Spotware, you can start using the Open API through your application.

The next step is to add a redirect URI that will be used for authentication.

You can always change your application's redirect URIs and add new ones or remove old ones.

Note

The default redirect URI is only for the playground environment, it will not work outside the playground environment, you can't use it on your own code/program.
