Authentication :: User Credentials [OAuth]


OAuth App must be created in Microsoft Azure AD. These settings typically found here [API Help..]


Firstly, login into Azure Portal and there create an OAuth application:

  1. Go to Azure Portal and login there.
  2. Then go to Azure Active Directory.
  3. On the left side click menu item App registrations
  4. Then proceed with clicking New registration.
  5. Enter a name for your application.
  6. Select Accounts in this organizational directory only as supported account type to access data in your company.
  7. In Redirect URI section leave option selected at Web.
  8. In nearby textbox enter as Redirect URI or any other valid redirect URL, e.g.
  9. Use this Redirect URI in Redirect URL grid row.
  10. Copy Application (client) ID and paste it into API Connection Manager configuration grid in Client ID row.
  11. Then click on Endpoints link and copy first URL to Authorization URL and second one to Token URL in configuration grid. Usually they look similar to these:
  12. Close "Endpoints" and create a Client Secret by clicking Certificates & secrets.
  13. Proceed by clicking New client secret and setting expiration period. Copy the client secret and paste it into configuration grid in Client Secret row.
  14. Use these scopes in Scopes field: offline_access Files.Read Files.Read.All Files.ReadWrite Files.ReadWrite.All openid profile Sites.Read.All Sites.ReadWrite.All User.Read email
  15. Click Generate Token to generate tokens.
    NOTE: If you are planning to use your current data connection/token for automated processes, we recommend that you use a generic account for token generation when the login box appears (e.g. instead of When you use a personal account which is tied to a specific employee profile and that employee leaves the company, the token may become invalid and any automated processes using that token will fail. Another potentially unwanted effect of using a personal token is incorrect logging; the API calls (e.g. Read, Edit, Delete, Upload) made with that token will record the specific user as performing the calls instead of an automated process.
  16. That's it!
