Congrats! You have successfully configured the Facebook plugin. Now, you can test the Sign in with Facebook option in your app.

Backend workflows

This section isn't a required configuration, but just an important note.

Note: When using Sign in with Facebook option in your app, it is required to have a server side script to delete Facebook data from your app. This is based on Facebook policy. This script isn’t triggered anywhere in your app because it is a webhook. It runs when users delete their app data from within their Facebook account.

In case you are using one of our templates with Sign in with Facebook as a feature, this endpoint is already created for you.

Warning: Please do not delete this endpoint from your app!

Note: The constant variable urlWithStatusconfirm should contain your own app URL with the confirmation page for deletion: const urlWithStatusconfirm = 'YOUR_PAGE_URL_HERE?id=${userInfo.user_id} ';
