Facebook Sign-In - Guide

Installing and using the Facebook SDK with Beamable [IDEN-Facebook-02]

The purpose of this guide is for game makers to use Facebook Sign-In with the Beamable Accounts Feature.



Beamable integrates with this technology.

Facebook's Login is a secure, fast, and convenient way for users to log into your app, and for your app to ask for permissions to access data.

                FB.Init(FB_InitCallback, FB_OnHideUnity);
            } else {

            if (promise.ThirdParty != AuthThirdParty.Facebook) return;
            var perms = new List<string>(){"public_profile", "email"};
            FB.LogInWithReadPermissions(perms, result => FB_AuthCallback(promise, result));

        //  Event Handlers  -------------------------------
       private void FB_InitCallback ()
           if (FB.IsInitialized) {
               // Signal an app activation App Event
               Debug.Log("Facebook SDK Initialized. Success.");
           } else {
               Debug.Log("Facebook SDK Not Initialized. Failure.");
       private void FB_OnHideUnity (bool isGameShown)
           if (!isGameShown) {
               // Pause the game - we will need to hide
               Time.timeScale = 0;
           } else {
               // Resume the game - we're getting focus again
               Time.timeScale = 1;
       private void FB_AuthCallback (ThirdPartyLoginPromise promise, ILoginResult result) 
           if (!string.IsNullOrEmpty(result.Error))
               promise.CompleteError(new ErrorCode(0, GameSystem.GAME_CLIENT, "Facebook Error", "Add details..."));
           if (FB.IsLoggedIn) {
               // AccessToken class will have session details
               var aToken = Facebook.Unity.AccessToken.CurrentAccessToken;
               // Print current access token's User ID

               foreach (string perm in aToken.Permissions) {
               promise.CompleteSuccess(new ThirdPartyLoginResponse()
                   AuthToken = aToken.TokenString
           } else {
               Debug.Log("User cancelled login");
