Xing plugin integration with auth0



Hi there,

I got a question regarding the authentication with OAuth using the German based portal Xing. They closed their public API and therefore it is not possible to use the documented way to integrate it with auth0. Nevertheless are Xing providing a plugin which enables a social login. Is there a way to integrate the plugin with auth0? Did someone already worked with it?
Thanks for the help!


Hey there @thomasbr24!

As far as I know, noone has asked us about Xing integrations before in the community so it might be hard to find any specific info on how to do that BUT :nerd_face: you can definitely go from here. Here’s a piece of content on adding custom social connections:

Let me know if that helps!


Hi Konrad,

Custom Social Connections don’t seem to make it.
Xing from their site offering a code snippet for integration using a consumer key and signature salt:

  1. <script type=“xing/login”>
  2. {
  3. “consumer_key”: “923ae3bb5b2f59e1296c”
  4. }
  5. </script>
  • <script>(function(d) {
  1. var js, id=‘lwx’;
  2. if (d.getElementById(id)) return;
  3. js = d.createElement(‘script’); = id; js.src = “”;
  4. d.getElementsByTagName(‘head’)[0].appendChild(js)
  5. }(document));</script>
