How to sign the contract with Facebook?

Once your app has been approved for use of the "pages_manage_posts" and "pages_read_engagement" features, you can activate your application. However, when you go to your app, on the Facebook for developers site, in the "My permissions and features" tab, you may be surprised not to see the "pages_manage_posts" and "pages_read_engagement" permissions even though they have been approved.


This is because you still have to sign a supplemental terms contract regarding the rules for using the app. In the "App Review" -> "Requests" tab you should always get the following message, in which it is written that you need to sign a contract before you can use your app, in addition to the business verification and the app review you have just done.
