igGameCenter API Developer Guide >> Member Registration
The registration procedure involves sending some information about a new member to the igGameCenter API and receiving an XML response containing member's ID, name and hashed password.

For registration of a new member account an external application should send a POST request to the following API script:
http://www.iggamecenter.com/api_user_add.php

containing the following parameters:

Field Name Field Content Field Format
app_id Application unique ID. mandatory, numeric
app_code Application secret passcode. mandatory, alpha-numeric
name Desired member's nickname. mandatory, alpha-numeric + some other symbols
password Desired member's password. mandatory, alpha-numeric + some other symbols
email Member's email. optional, alpha-numeric + some other symbols
realName Member's real name. optional, alpha-numeric + some other symbols
sex Member's sex. optional, 1 character (can be M, F or -)
birthDay Day of member's birth. optional, numeric (1-31)
birthMonth Month of member's birth. optional, numeric (1-12)
birthYear Year of member's birth. optional, numeric (4 digits)
country 2-letters country code. optional, 2 characters

networkuid A unique id associated with the physical device / site / social network. optional, alpha-numeric + dashes + underscores, max 64 symbols

If the external application specifies a non-empty networkuid then igGameCenter will allow to create only a single account per specified ID. Any attempts to register a new account with the same networkuid will return the information about the previously registered account without registering a new one.

The returned response will be one of the following:

Success response:

<userAddResult>
<uid>333</uid>

<password>xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx</password>
</userAddResult>
