  • Step 4: The User Gives Permission
  • Step 5: The Receiver Obtains an Access Token
  • Step 6: The Receiver Accesses the Protected Resource

How OAuth Protects APIs

  • Creating an OAuth Provider API. The provider API will contain OAuth tokens for both endpoints of an OAuth flow.
  • Protecting an API with OAuth security definition. When you add this protocol’s security definition to your app or website, you add settings that allow you to control API operations through the OAuth authorization standard.
  • OAuth Metadata URL and Authentication URL. You can set OAuth metadata URL or authentication URL that will be used to obtain user-specific content from a website. It will access it from a remote server and add it to the access token or as a part of the payload that contains the security token.
