Custom Credentials

When to Use a Custom OAuth App

Creating a custom OAuth app is required to connect.

You might want to create a custom OAuth app to change the information displayed when users log into Twitter Ads to grant permissions to the add-in.

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 connection properties, you are ready to connect:

  • OAuthClientId: Set this to the client Id in your app settings.
  • OAuthClientSecret: Set this to the secret in your app settings.
  • CallbackURL: Set this to the OAuth Redirect URL that you specified to use your own OAuth app.
  • InitiateOAuth: Set this to GETANDREFRESH. You can use InitiateOAuth to avoid repeating the OAuth exchange and manually setting the OAuthAccessToken connection property.
When you connect the add-in opens the OAuth endpoint in your default browser. Log in and grant permissions to the application.
