i tried but i am getting this error: Given URL is not permitted by the Application configuration: One or more of the given URLs is not permitted by the App's settings. It must match the Website URL or Canvas URL, or the domain must be a subdomain of one of the App's domains.


Hi Mohith,
Login through social sites can be done easily in Odoo. Regarding Facebook, You don't need any custom addons. Just setup a facebook app from developer platform, configure your URI details there and paste the app id in Odoo Oauth provider form. You can get proper instructions from here Note that Facebook has revised their API terms and they are forcing the login over https through 'Enforce HTTPS' for newly creating apps. If you want to use this app in public (for large number of users), You have to keep it as LIVE after the submission to Facebook team.

To avoid our applications to be open to redirect attacks Facebook requires a "Valid OAuth redirect URI".
I have tried but it doesn't work. (when I remove it it works). This is vital, does anyone know?
