Callback URLs/Redirect URIs

In OAuth 2.0 authentication, the client—on the end user’s behalf—will send the server a client ID, credentials, scopes, and callback URLs—all of which the server needs in order to properly authenticate a client. The callback URLs, also known as redirect URIs, tell the server where to send the user with the proper tokens after authentication.

For purposes within Skuid, you’ll want the end user sent back to the Skuid site/org accessing the data. So whether you’re using one of Google’s many APIs, modifying data on an external Salesforce org, or accessing a Sharepoint database, you will need to use your Skuid callback URL for every external data source that uses OAuth 2.0 authentication.

Note that you will be entering your callback URL on the settings page of whatever service you are accessing, such as the Google API Console, the Salesforce Connected App page, or the Dropbox API app page. You will not be entering this URL on any Skuid page.

Constructing callback URLs

For Skuid NLX sites, append /auth/oauth/callback to your Skuid site’s domain URL.
