Facebook Adapter Overview

The Facebook Adapter is used to report against information, resident in the Facebook environment. It can also be used by DataMigrator in the creation of datamarts to house Facebook information.

You can configure the Facebook Adapter using the Reporting Server Web Console. The adapter requires a connection, which stores the access token. A valid Facebook access token is needed to issue Facebook API calls. The token is associated with a Facebook application and a specific Facebook user. The access token is valid for 60 days after which a new access token would need to be obtained and configured.

The connection page shows permissions that will be granted to the Facebook application. You can uncheck permissions that should not be granted. The connection process will use only checked permissions. Authentication will take place even if no permissions are granted.
