TDV Adapter for Confluence

Build 21.0.8137

Custom Credentials

This section describes desktop authentication using the credentials for your custom OAuth app. See Creating a Custom OAuth App for more information.

Get an OAuth Access Token

After setting the following, you are ready to connect:

  • OAuthClientId: Set to the Client ID in your app settings.
  • OAuthClientSecret: Set to the Client Secret in your app settings.
  • CallbackURL: Set to the Redirect URL in your app settings.
  • OAuthVersion: Set to 2.0.
  • Url: The URL to your Confluence endpoint; for example,
  • InitiateOAuth: Set to GETANDREFRESH. You can use InitiateOAuth to avoid repeating the OAuth exchange and manually setting the OAuthAccessToken.
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 following 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.
