Connect Social Engagement to other domains

Enable communication between Microsoft Social Engagement and other compatible applications (such as Dynamics 365) by adding domains that are allowed to make requests for your Social Engagement data to a list. You can remove domains from the list to disallow communications.

To add or remove domains, or to connect Social Engagement to another application, you must be a Social Engagement Administrator.

You can enter the following values in your list of allowed domains:

  • Full domain names: This enables communication between the specified domain and your Social Engagement solution, for example, app.contoso.com

  • Domain names with wildcards: This enables communication between all subdomains of the entered domain and your Social Engagement solution, for example, *.contoso.com

  • Host names: This enables communication between a custom host name and your Social Engagement solution, for example, http://hostname

Important

Make sure to remove trailing slashes from the domain name.

Add a domain

  1. Go to Settings > Connections > Allowed Domains.

  2. Type the domain name in the input field, and then click the Add button New or Add button.

Remove a domain

  1. Go to Settings > Connections >Allowed Domains.

  2. Locate the domain you want to remove, click the Delete button Delete button, and then confirm the deletion.

Add the solution URL to the configuration page

In the Solution URL pane of the Allowed Domains page, you’ll find the URL to connect to this instance of Social Engagement.

Copy the solution URL and paste it into the configuration page of the application that you want to connect to Social Engagement.

Note

Make sure to add the domain or host name of the application you plan to connect to Social Engagement to your list of allowed domains.

To make sure only the domains you own can make requests to your data, we recommend you add your organization’s domain to the list of allowed domains. When a specific domain is added to the list of allowed domains, *.dynamics.com is automatically removed from the allowed domains.
