Custom Credentials

There are two types of app authentication available: using a client secret and using a certificate. You can use any of them depending on the configured app authentication.

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

You are ready to connect after setting one of the below connection properties groups depending on the authentication type.

  1. Authenticating using a Client Secret
    • 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.
    • AuthScheme: Set this to the "AzureAD" in your app settings.
    • InitiateOAuth: Set this to GETANDREFRESH. You can use InitiateOAuth to avoid repeating the OAuth exchange and manually setting the OAuthAccessToken. .
  2. Authenticating using a Certificate
    • OAuthClientId: Set this to the Client Id in your app settings.
    • OAuthJWTCert: Set this to the JWT Certificate store.
    • OAuthJWTCertType: Set this to the type of the certificate store specified by OAuthJWTCert.
    • CallbackURL: Set this to the Redirect URL in your app settings.
    • AuthScheme: Set this to the "AzureAD" in your app settings.
    • InitiateOAuth: Set this to GETANDREFRESH. You can use InitiateOAuth to avoid repeating the OAuth exchange and manually setting the OAuthAccessToken. .

When you connect the component opens the OAuth endpoint in your default browser. Log in and grant permissions to the application. The component 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.

Web Authentication with Your OAuth App

When connecting via a Web application, you need to register a custom OAuth app with Azure Resource Management. See Creating a Custom OAuth App. You can then use the component to get and manage the OAuth token values.

Get an OAuth Access Token

Set one of the following connection properties groups depending on the authentication type to obtain the OAuthAccessToken:

  1. Authenticating using a Client Secret
    • OAuthClientId: Set this to the Client Id in your app settings.
    • OAuthClientSecret: Set this to the Client Secret in your app settings.
    • AuthScheme: Set this to "AzureAD".
  2. Authenticating using a Certificate
    • OAuthClientId: Set this to the Client Id in your app settings.
    • OAuthJWTCert: Set this to the JWT Certificate store.
    • OAuthJWTCertType: Set this to the type of the certificate store specified by OAuthJWTCert.
    • AuthScheme: Set this to "AzureAD".

You can then call stored procedures to complete the OAuth exchange:

  1. 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. If necessary, set the Permissions parameter to request custom permissions.

    The stored procedure returns the URL to the OAuth endpoint.

  2. Open the URL, log in, and authorize the application. You are redirected back to the callback URL.
  3. 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. If necessary, set the Permissions parameter to request custom permissions.

To connect to data, set the OAuthAccessToken connection property to the access token returned by the stored procedure. When the access token expires after ExpiresIn seconds, call GetOAuthAccessToken again to obtain a new access token.
