I'm following the "Adding Support for a New Service Provider" Section from the Manual (see below for url) to add support for a new Service Provider. The Section "Creating an ApiAdapter" talks about extending the API Adaptor and passing in the connection values (e.g. User Profile, Display Name, Profile Url etc.) commonly found in Social Networks.
This is a problem for me because the Service Provider I am trying to implement is not a "Social Network" and does not have these properties. It is a simple RESTful API that comes with a Username and a Password. Can I ignore these values by passing null? Please advice.
Can someone tell me if the "ProviderUserId"? is set by the Service Provider or the Developer? Not sure what it is.
