Mapping Registration Values to the Windows Live UI

Current information about Live Connect is now available in the Windows Live Developer Center. The information in the following sections is provided for legacy purposes only.

When you register your application with Windows Live at the application management site (https://manage.dev.live.com), the application information that you provide appears in various elements of the Windows Live user interface (UI), including the user consent UI and your application's Add page (http://profile.live.com/services/add.aspx?appid=<DecimalVersionOfYourClientID>).

Consider the sample application settings on the following two screens from the application management site.

The Essentials page from the Portal with callouts


The Text and Logo page from the Portal w/ callouts

Note the labels (A, B, C, D, and so on) next to the various boxes on these screens. Look for these labels in the following sections, where they indicate how the information from these boxes maps to elements in the Windows Live UI.

Users of your application must sign in and provide consent for your application to retrieve Windows Live data on their behalf. A sample Windows Live consent dialog box is shown below. The labels indicate the mapping of information from the application settings described earlier to the elements of the consent UI.

Mapping registration to the Consent dialog box

Your application's Add page (http://profile.live.com/services/add.aspx?appid=<DecimalVersionOfYourClientID>) is the place in Windows Live where users learn about your application and connect it to Windows Live. As with the consent dialog box shown previously, the following screen example shows where your application settings appear on the Add page.
