Cmdlets for Basecamp

Custom Credentials

When to Use a Custom OAuth App

Creating a custom OAuth app is optional as the cmdlet 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 Basecamp to grant permissions to the cmdlet.

Desktop Authentication with a Custom OAuth App

Follow the steps below to authenticate with the credentials for a custom OAuth app. See Creating a Custom OAuth App for more information.

Get and Refresh the OAuth Access Token

After setting the following, you are ready to connect:

  • OAuthClientId: Set this to the client Id assigned when you registered your app.
  • OAuthClientSecret: Set this to the client secret assigned when you registered your app.
  • CallbackURL: Set this to the redirect URI defined when you registered your app.
  • AccountId: Copy this from the URL after you log into Basecamp:
    https://basecamp.com/<AccountId>
  • Schema: Set this to "V2" or "V3" to connect to Basecamp 2 or Basecamp 3 accounts.
  • ProjectId: For most table operations, a ProjectId is a required parameter. You can query the Projects table to obtain this value.
When you connect the cmdlet opens the OAuth endpoint in your default browser. Log in and grant permissions to the application.
