  1. From the Instagram Live Producer, create your Live Video on Instagram. Enter in the title and description, then select "Public". 
  2. Under Add live video details, select "Go live with streaming software". Copy the Stream key and Stream URL, then navigate back to the Livestream event in the business portal and paste these. 
  3. When ready to stream, select Go Live in the business portal. Navigate back to Live Producer and click "Go live" as well. Once your stream has ended, be sure to end the stream in Instagram and then your business portal.
