Automate oauth 2.0 token retrieval


Hi All,

My application uses oauth 2.0 authorization for generating access token for "New User".

In manual process, i do the following steps.

Click on Get Access Token

Enter oauth 2.0 Flow: Authorization Code Grant

Enter client Id

Enter client secret

Enter authorization url

Enter access token url

Enter redirect url and 

Click on Get Access Token button.

New popup opens and i have to click on signup button to enter username, password and click signup.

Once done, token is generated.


How can this be achieved through automation process

    Hey SathiyaR 


    every so often someone else posts this question


    have a look at this link


    also if you search the forum for "automating OAuth" or "automating OAuth token retrieval" or similar strings you should be able to find what you need.


    I never got it to work myself, but that was cos I was working on a customised bodge of OAuth - so the way I automated it was to replicate the back and forth that occurs within OAuth to generate the tokens - that was a bit of a nightmare so I don't recommend it, although I did get there in the end

      Hi richie ,


      I have already went through the link[which you have suggested] and it doesn't help in my case. The example is for handling the sign in process, whereas my case i wanted to signup as new user every time.
