Using OAuth Authentication
OAuth requires the authenticating user to interact with Sage 200 using the browser. The driver facilitates this in various ways as described below.
Embedded CredentialsSee Embedded Credentials to connect with the driver's embedded credentials and skip creating a custom OAuth app.
Instead of connecting with the driver's embedded credentials, you can register an app to obtain the OAuthClientId and OAuthClientSecret.
When to Create a Custom OAuth AppCreating a custom OAuth app is optional as the driver is already registered with Sage 200 and you can connect with its embedded credentials. Create a custom OAuth app in the following scenarios:
- If you need to request additional permissions over the driver defaults.
- If you want to change the information displayed when users log into the Sage 200 OAuth endpoint to grant permissions to the driver.
Creating a Custom OAuth App
See Creating a Custom OAuth App for a procedure.
