Create Managed User


Private Beta Feature

This documentation covers a feature currently in Private Beta. Access is exclusive to approved participants. If you're interested in joining the Private Beta program, apply here.

Please note that while the docs are publicly viewable, functionality is limited to Private Beta participants until public launch.

Create a managed Foursquare user for your application. This endpoint should be called any time your application registers a new user.

NOTE: This endpoint requires a Foursquare Service API Key to authenticate. Learn how to create a Service API Key.



Please make sure to store the resulting oauth_token/user_id pairings for each user in your own internal database.

There is no method to fetch this pairing once returned during user creation. If you need to generate a new oauth_token for your user, you can do so via the refresh user token endpoint.
