Janrain Engage starts with applications created and hosted on rpxnow.com. Once you have set up Engage on rpxnow.com, you can interact with it through a Dashboard interface. From the Dashboard, you can create and customize widgets, track analytics data, store configurations, and get support. The Dashboard is your central location for administration tasks.
The purpose of this quick start guide is to illustrate how to create an Application at the Basic service level, which is free. Administrators may want to access the additional features at the Plus, Pro, and Enterprise levels. An application with a Basic service level can be upgraded to Plus at any time. For those interested in the Pro and Enterprise level, contact Janrain for pricing and enrollment information.
Note: Pro and Enterprise customers will receive an email with a link to their newly created application, so those customers do not need to create a Basic account as detailed in this guide.
To create your application:
- Visit the rpxnow.com site.
- Click the Sign Up button.
- Select the Basic service level.
- Choose an Identity Provider to use for sign-in.
- Enter a password, if not currently signed into your Identity Provider.
- Select Agree. Depending on the Identity Provider you chose, additional authorization may be required.
- Enter the contact Name, Company, and Email to be used for this application and then click Next.
- Choose a name for your Application, and select Create Application (see Figure 1). For the Basic service level, your name will be appended to the rpxnow domain, appearing as yourdomain.rpxnow.com. This URL may be customized at higher service levels.
- The Janrain servers generate the application you’ve created. Click the Get Started button to continue.
Access is now granted to your application’s Dashboard, as shown in Figure 2.
Your Basic application is now created and ready for use. For more information on using the Dashboard, see the Janrain Dashboard topic.
You can create different applications for different sites. Adding one is as easy as selecting your application from the top navigation menu, and selecting Create Application.
Next Steps ¶
You can start accessing Janrain Engage features from your application right away. Some steps to consider:
- For Enterprise users, you may want to configure a custom domain. When a user signs in, by default users will be redirected to a url that appears as https://*your application*.rpxnow.com. A custom domain will change the URL to a top level domain of your choice: https://yoursite.com or .biz, or whatever your domain is. To configure a custom domain, please contact your Janrain Engage representative. Janrain will provide DNS settings, procure a SSL certificate, and then send an invitation once the process is complete, around 3 days.
- Add a Social Sign-In Widget to your website to allow sign-in using Identity Providers (see Figure 3). For more information on this feature, visit the Social Sign-In Quick Start Guide, or Social Sign-In Widget page.
