Using OAuth Authentication
OAuth requires the authenticating user to interact with Azure DevOps using the browser. The component facilitates this in various ways as described below.
Desktop ApplicationsSee Embedded Credentials to connect with the component's embedded credentials and skip creating a custom OAuth app.
Instead of connecting with the component's embedded credentials, you can register an app to obtain the OAuthClientId and OAuthClientSecret.
When to Create a Custom OAuth App
You need to create a custom OAuth app in the web flow.
Creating a custom OAuth app is optional as the component is already registered with Azure DevOps 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 Azure DevOps OAuth endpoint to grant permissions to the component.
Creating a Custom OAuth App
