Registering TeamDynamix with Windows Live

This article is intended to give you the information you will need to register TeamDynamix with Windows Live so that you can make oAuth 2.0 calls to Microsoft products through web service workflows. You must register TeamDynamix with Microsoft® as an application and receive a client ID for use with the service. Only a person who has a valid Windows Live ID can register an application and obtain a client ID. After you create the application, you can sign in and change it whenever you want.

Registering Your Application

The Windows Live application management site assists you with the registration process, issues your client ID to you, and provides a place where you can continue to manage all the applications you register.

To get your client ID

To complete the integration of your application with Windows Live, you must specify additional settings and publish your application. Click the Essentials link under the box that displays your client ID and secret key.

Whenever you want to retrieve or change your application data, return to the Windows Live application management site. Sign in with the Windows Live ID account that you used during registration to see and manage your application projects.

  1. Go to the Windows Live application management site.
  2. Sign in by using your Windows Live ID.
    Important note: If this is your first visit to this site, you will see several pages that configure your Windows Live ID for use with the site.
