You have to create a post describing your application, and edit it into your application's registration.

enter image description here

Basically, the first arrow needs a value; and you can set it when you edit (with the second arrow). Click "Manage your applications" in the homepage sidebar of Stack Apps to get to your application list.

We require this so that:

  • we always have a public link that identifies an app (separate from app registration)
  • which we want, so users can report abuse of the API
  • Hello Kevin...Could you please give me example of public link from which I can get Idea about value for my app or how to render it, I have tried some values but it is giving error either as: "Post must be on stackapps" or "Post link cannot be parsed"...hoping for your answer sir..thank you Commented May 14, 2015 at 8:12
