Step 2: App ID

After completing the registration process, you will be redirected to the Agora Dashboard.

Open the Project Management tab in the Agora Dashboard. Here you will see a list of all your projects, you can quickly access the AppID of an existing project or create a new one.
 
To create a new project and create a new AppID, click the “Create” button in the upper left part of the screen.


In the dialog you will be prompted to enter your Project Name and select your Authentication Mechanism.



The "Authentication Mechanism" options are important, as your selection here will (1) add the recommended layer of security needed when running your application in any environment other than the "By" phase proof of concept" or (2) will not add any security.

The second option is there to make it easier when testing Agora or building an initial “Proof of Concept” application. Once you've progressed from the beta phase of your project, Agora strongly recommends enabling Token Validation.

Step 3: Download Agora SDK

You are now ready to download the appropriate Agora SDK for whatever product and platform you are using.
