Social connection problem with Instagram

Hello, I am trying to use instagram social connection to log in to my application. But it seems that Auth0 has not updated this to be compatible for the new Instagram Graph API. Can anyone confirm this?

Hey there Roberto!

Judging by our Instagram connection doc here:

it was updated to work with their new Graph API.

Sorry but I think that it’s not correctly. I follow all the steps of the documentation, but when I try the connection the following error message appears:

{“error_type”: “OAuthException”, “code”: 400, “error_message”: “Invalid scope: [‘basic’]”}

Auth0 add this scope: ‘basic’, and it is not a valid scope for new graph api, this scope is for old api:

https://www.instagram.com/developer/authorization/

the valid scopes for the new api are:user_profile,user_media

https://developers.facebook.com/docs/instagram-basic-display-api/reference/oauth-authorize/

So Auth0 really isn’t using the new api for Instagram.

Let me discuss it with the product managers then!

Ok, thank you. I look forward to your reply.

No worries! We’re here for you!

Hello!, Do we have any news?. Thank you

Not yet. As soon as i have any info I will share it with you!

@konrad.sopala any ETA from the product team? we use instagram login as basis for our product and we’ve almost finished building it, we want to use auth0 and don’t want building workarounds around this, especially when it’s just about changing 1 scope on your side…
