Grant your company applications access to LotusLive™. A company application is any application used by your organization that is not available by default on LotusLive.
By registering company applications with LotusLive, you make them available to your organization's users.
To work with LotusLive and your company's application, that application must first be registered with LotusLive.
Users access the registered application as normal, but the application can now interact with LotusLive.
For example, a user could post a file on the application which can then be made available from LotusLive.
Company application registration is implemented using the OAuth protocol with Key and Secret pairs.
Use the following steps to register an application. You must have Administrator role added to your account Settings before you can perform the following steps:
Step 1. Log on Lotus Live using your credentials

Enter a name and description for the application when prompted. The application name cannot exceed 50 characters, and the application description cannot exceed 1000 characters.
During registration, your application will be assigned a key and secret. Registered applications are displayed in Manage Custom Apps.
After registering your application, it may become necessary to reset the key and secret pair.
For example, these values should be reset if you suspect they have been compromised.
Step 5. You can edit properties of an existing application by clicking the menu next to the application and selecting Edit properties:
