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 本製品 is already registered with LinkedIn 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 LinkedIn OAuth endpoint to grant permissions to the 本製品.
Desktop Authentication with a Custom OAuth App
Follow the steps below to authenticate with the credentials for a custom OAuth app. See カスタムOAuth アプリの作成.
Get 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.
- InitiateOAuth: Set this to GETANDREFRESH. You can use InitiateOAuth to avoid repeating the OAuth exchange and manually setting the OAuthAccessToken.
When you connect the 本製品 opens the OAuth endpoint in your default browser. Log in and grant permissions to the application. The 本製品 then completes the OAuth process:
- Extracts the access token from the callback URL and authenticates requests.
- Saves OAuth values in OAuthSettingsLocation to be persisted across connections.
Web Authentication with a Custom OAuth App
When connecting via a Web application, you need to register a custom OAuth app with LinkedIn. You can then use the 本製品 to get and manage the OAuth token values.
Get an OAuth Access Token
Set the following connection properties to obtain the OAuthAccessToken:
- OAuthClientId: Set this to the Client Id in your app settings.
- OAuthClientSecret: Set this to the Client Secret in your app settings.
You can then call stored procedures to complete the OAuth exchange:
- Call the GetOAuthAuthorizationURL stored procedure. Set the AuthMode input to WEB and set the CallbackURL input to the Redirect URI you specified in your app settings. The stored procedure returns the URL to the OAuth endpoint.
- Log in and authorize the application. You are redirected back to the callback URL.
- Call the GetOAuthAccessToken stored procedure. Set the AuthMode input to WEB. Set the Verifier input to the "code" parameter in the query string of the callback URL.
