Verify gamer tag?

OP Wolly Wospers

Hey everyone,

Im working on a stat tracking app and want to know if there is any way I can verify a user account is actually owned by someone? I’d like to have the ability for people to sign in to the app with their Xbox live credentials in order to link their correct Halo gamer tag to their app account.

Are there any ways to do this?

Any help is much appreciated.

Currently HaloAPI only supports GET requests. Since there isn't a need for authorizing XBL profiles. You should just store the Gamertag to disc or a cloud. You can easily verify a Gamertag with Halo-5-Player-Appearance end point. If you really need to verify a user Gamertag you can use the xbox-live auth api. Here's a JS module that can easily perform that task as long as the account doesn't have 2fa setup.

Hope one of these suggestions help.

Happy coding!
