The Connection API is used to obtain the social network profile data of the users that have connected with a social network account. The OneAll API returns a standardized field structure for data received from any of the social networks.
||List all connections||–||–||–|

The Connection API is mainly used in the callback handler. The callback handler is a script that requests the social network profile data of a user which has logged in through on of our services, like for example Social Login.
The callback handler script requests the social network profile of a user by sending a
<connection_token> to the Connection API.
The connection API returns the social network profile of the user and you can then use this
information to create a new account or tie the social network profile to an existing user.
