false, the user is redirected to another URL for authentication with a social network.
Once the user has been authenticated and is sent to the return URL, you can use the provided
accesstoken to access to their user data. The
accesstoken can be used to make an
auth call to the AE REST API and return required user data.
Secure Calls to the AE REST API
Note that all of your calls to the AE REST API should be made via server-side code.
We recommend that this code run on a local machine with its IP whitelisted from your AE dashboard.
