Redirect Uri

Hi,

I’m working on a couple of non web apps and for each I am currently setting
up a dummy page on my own hosting to act as the oAuth Redirect Uri. The
dummy pages don’t do anything, my apps just monitor for when they’ve been
hit and extract the code from the Uri.

This means though that I have a fairly unnecessary point of failure in that
my apps rely on these dummy pages being reachable. Is this something you
could provide at FreeAgent instead?

Thanks,

Neil

Yes. Web browser within app and monitoring the URL. I’m currently checking
at page load, so the URL has to exist somewhere and be accessible. Is that
how you are doing it or are you checking before page load?

I’d thought about a simple http listener but it seems a shame to have to
put something like that in place, and I’m not sure if there would be any
potential issues with desktop firewalls.On Thursday, 5 July 2012 15:02:32 UTC+1, Nic Wise wrote:

iOS).

OR, setup a load HTTP server and use that as the redirect. Then you
get called with the code :slight_smile:

Well, IE and WebKit on iOS both have a “LoadStarted” / “LoadFinished”
type events, so you can hook into it before the network gets a chance.On Thu, Jul 5, 2012 at 3:33 PM, Neil Ballantyne ndballantyne@gmail.com wrote:
