Fun with OAuth

Hi there

OK, so I’m trying to get the OAuth flow working. I want to redirect
back to a specific URI scheme (mobileagent://), and I specify that in
the app configuration (tho I’ve changed it to be http://whatever at
the moment, but that doesn’t work either)

Iv’e changed the Auth URL I’m using to this:

https://api.freeagent.com/v2/approve_app?response_type=code&client_id=MY_KEY_HERE&scope=mobileagent&access_type=offline

(ie, I’ve removed the redirect_uri). The docs say: “redirect_uri
(required unless supplied when registering) must be url escaped”

I have one registered.

Once I login, I get this:

Sorry, there’s been a problem.
Please get in touch with the author of the application you’re trying
to authorise.

If I change it to:

https://api.freeagent.com/v2/approve_app?response_type=code&client_id=MY_KEY_HERE&scope=mobileagent&access_type=offline&redirect_uri=foo

it works, and I get sent to https://api.freeagent.comfoo/?code=&state=

Any ideas whats happening here? I can specify the URI in the request,
but I thought the point was that I shouldn’t have to!

Thanks! (more questions coming)

Hi Nic,

There was a bug with redirect_uri handling. I’ve fixed it, so the steps
you outline below should now be working.

Cheers,
