Generic oAuth 1 and 2 feature (Customize oAUTH configurable request headers)
DSYNC now offers advanced authorization and configurable oAuth 1 and 2 settings. This feature is great for developers who would like to join APIs and customize request headers when authorizing systems.
To complement our advanced API endpoint, we have added generic oauth 1 and 2 authorization plugins into the DSYNC platform so that developers can connect two platforms that use oAUTH.
If you have a platform that uses oAuth and it has specific requirements you can configure it in DSYNC.
There are 4 different ways to connect to other systems
- Basic Auth – Username and password
- Token – Using an API key to authorize
- Generic oAuth 1 (configure and edit your own settings / headers)
- Generic oAuth 2 (configure and edit your own settings / headers)
How to Customize oAUTH configurable request headers
- The first step is to add a blank system to the DSYNC canvas
- Add a new API endpoint
- Edit the system settings, you will have the choice of editing your own authorization settings, within the settings section you will be able to complete your own oAuth details.
Developers are able to enter in your own request headers for authorizing platforms.
Different platforms have different oAuth configuration settings. The DSYNC platform enables developers to connect to any API that is based on oAuth 1 or oAuth 2. This is a great developer’s tool for customizing headers for oAuth.
DSYNC can be used to edit “Request headers”
When connecting APIs DSYNC can be used to edit the Request headers of the oAuth. If your system you are connecting requires a different name on the header it can be configured within the DSYNC application.
The DSYNC oAuth settings are configurable so you can use these oAuth plugins to connect to a number of unique systems. By using DSYNC you can configure oAuths and be able to authenticate with platforms that use oAuth 1 and 2.
