Authenticate using the Embedded OAuth Credentials

Desktop Authentication with the Embedded OAuth App

You can connect without setting any connection properties for your user credentials. After setting InitiateOAuth to GETANDREFRESH, you are ready to connect.

When you connect, 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. Saves OAuth values in OAuthSettingsLocation to be persisted across connections.
