Custom Credentials

When to Use a Custom OAuth App

Creating a custom OAuth app is required for desktop applications.

Desktop Authentication with your OAuth App

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

Get an OAuth Access Token

After setting the following, you are ready to connect:

  • OAuthClientId: Set this to the Client Id in your app settings.
  • OAuthClientSecret: Set this to the Client Secret in your app settings.
  • CallbackURL: Set this to the Redirect URL in your app settings, such as http://localhost:33333.
  • InitiateOAuth: Set this to GETANDREFRESH. You can use InitiateOAuth to avoid repeating the OAuth exchange and manually setting the OAuthAccessToken if you already generated one through the API Add-on on your TSheets account. .
When you connect with InitiateOAuth set to GETANDREFRESH the adapter opens the OAuth endpoint in your default browser. Log in and grant permissions to the application. The adapter then completes the OAuth process:
  1. Extracts the access token from the callback URL and authenticates requests.
  2. Obtains a new access token when the old one expires.
  3. Saves OAuth values in OAuthSettingsLocation to be persisted across connections.
