OAuth 2.0 is an industry-standard protocol for authorization.
Integrations and Connectors
AgilePoint NX integrates in these ways with OAuth 2.0:
- Access tokens
You can create access tokens for OAuth 2.0.
An access token is a secure object that stores an endpoint (usually a URL) and authentication credentials to connect to a service or technology. Often this is an external or third-party service, like Salesforce or SharePoint, but access tokens can also connect to an AgilePoint NX enviornment, local database, or other types of technologies. Once an access token is created, app designers can simply select and reuse it, rather than entering the credentials each time they are needed.
For more information, refer to Access Token for OAuth 2.0.
There are two uses of the term "access token" for Oauth 2.0 in AgilePoint NX. This article refers to integration with the OAuth 2.0 protocol in general, which includes the AgilePoint NX access token that lets you connect to a REST service that uses a custom OAuth 2.0 authorization scheme. The other is the native use of "access token" for the OAuth 2.0 protocol, which represents an authenitcation credential. The AgilePoint access token for OAuth 2.0 includes the native OAuth 2.0 access token as part of its authentication credentials. Because these are two different uses of the term "access token" in relation to OAuth 2.0, these two concepts can be easily confused. For more information about the native use of "access token" in OAuth 2.0, refer to OAuth 2.0 access token.
