Pathfix allows you to easily add Apple identity (Login with Apple) for your end-user, handling authorization and enable communication between your app and Apple in just a few minutes.
Before proceeding, you must have enrolled in the Apple developer program. To enroll in the Apple developer program, go to developer.apple.com/programs/enroll
- On the Apple Developer portal, go to Certificates, Identifiers, & Profiles.
- On the Identifiers tab, select the (+) button.
- On the Register a New Identifier page, choose App IDs and select Continue. (App IDs include one or more Service IDs.)
- On the Register an App ID page, add a description you want under Description and add the Bundle ID as per your domain (e.g. auth.acmesaas.com)
- Select Sign in with Apple from the capabilities list. Then select Continue
IMPORTANT: Make a note of your App ID Prefix (Team ID) from this step, you'll need to enter this in Pathfix under Team ID.
- Review the app registration information and select Register.
- Again, on the Identifiers tab, select the (+) button.
- On the Register a New Identifier page, choose Services IDs and select Continue
- On the Register a Services ID page, provide a description and an identifier. The description is what will be shown to the user on the consent screen. The identifier will be your domain e.g. com.acmesaas.auth
- Select Configure.
- On the pop-up window, set the Primary App Id to the App Id you created earlier. Specify your application's domain in the domain section. For the Return URL, use the URL https://labs.pathfix.com/integrate/command
