Creating a SoundCloud Application

Updated 7 days ago ​by Mike Penhall

To start collecting social registrations with SoundCloud, you need to get your SoundCloud app up and running. 

It takes a couple of weeks to get an app up and running with SoundCloud, so make sure to do this service early enough. 

Here's how:



1. Go to the SoundCloud main site

You have to create a profile for your app first. So click on Create an Account.






2. After signing up, click on the Profile link from your drop-down on the righthand side

 


3. Copy the URL from your browser window

This is your profile link and you'll need it for your SoundCloud App.



4. Go to the Developer site and click on Register a new app




5. Fill in the first page of the form and paste your profile URL in the first field




6. Fill in the second page with details about your business & app



7. Fill in the fields on the third screen

Make sure you choose the "Yes" option under the question "Will your app authenticate users?"



8. Fill in the Redirect URI field

Add in: https://theappreciationengine.com/SoundcloudAuthenticator_Controller

*If you're on a custom AE Enterprise plan, you'll have a custom domain. Make sure to add it in front.

E.g.
https://sony.theappreciationengine.com/SoundcloudAuthenticator_Controller

Click the Submit button.



9. Successfully applied!

You'll get a message you've been successful and you'll have to wait about two weeks to find out if your app is approved by SoundCloud.



10. Application approved

Once your SoundCloud app has been approved, you can log into the developer site and pick up your Client ID and Secret.



11. Open another tab and log into your AE dashboard account

Click on Applications from the AE header.


12. Click on the Edit button



13. Select the SoundCloud icon



14. Copy your Client ID (a.k.a. Key) and Secret into the AE window and press the Activate service button



15. You can see your SoundCloud app is live with AE



16. High five! 

You've connected SoundCloud to AE. Now you just need to wait for approval.
