Creating a Custom OAuth App

When to Create a Custom OAuth App

Creating a custom OAuth app is required in the web flow. Creating a custom OAuth app is optional for desktop and headless applications; the component is already registered with Basecamp and you can connect with its embedded credentials.

You might want to create a custom OAuth app to change the information displayed when users log into the Basecamp OAuth endpoint to grant permissions to the component.

Follow the steps below to create a custom OAuth app and obtain the connection properties in a specific OAuth authentication flow.

Create a Custom OAuth App: Desktop

Register your Basecamp app on integrate.37signals.com to obtain the following connection properties:

  • OAuthClientId
  • OAuthClientSecret
  • CallbackURL
Set Redirect URI to http://localhost:portnumber and set CallbackURL to match. You can specify any port available.

Create a Custom OAuth App: Web Apps

Register your Basecamp app on integrate.37signals.com to obtain the following connection properties:

  • OAuthClientId
  • OAuthClientSecret
Set the Redirect URI to a page on your website where you would like the user to be returned after the user grants permissions to your app.

Create a Custom OAuth App: Headless Machines

Register your Basecamp app on integrate.37signals.com to obtain the following connection properties:

  • OAuthClientId
  • OAuthClientSecret
Set the Redirect URI to http://localhost:portnumber. You can specify any port available.
