Request an oAuth2 token without "Client Secret"

Hi Guys,


I'm trying to add support for oAuth2 to my requests. I am using the "Authorisation Code Grant" flow to get a token from the server. Now, my server does not have a Client Secret so I have not entered one in the required field in the dialog. Right now my request details looks like this (sensitive info redacted):




The problem is that when I try to get the Access Token SOAP UI returns "Invalid OAuth 2 parameters: Client Secret is empty" error. Is there a value I can enter into the field to make SOAPUI ignore the Client Secret? Is there any other workaround for this (wildcard etc?). Any hep would be appreciated.

    This has been very frustrating for me and I'm now writing this 3 years after your post. Anyways I've gotten around it a little by using some code in the automation section. Hopefully this helps any other poor souls. I grab the auth code from my redirect URI, then I post it manually and use a page that simply displays my URL to me. This way I can copy and paste into SOAP UI. Not a great workflow but stops me from having to open PostMan or something else.


    if(document.URL.startsWith("<redirect URI>")) {
    var code = document.URL.split('?')[1].split('=')[1];
    var URL = "<Token URL> ";
    var xhr = new XMLHttpRequest();'POST', URL, false);
    var body = "&grant_type=authorization_code&code=" + code + "&redirect_uri=<redirect URI>&client_id=${#Project#ClientId}";
    var theResponse = JSON.parse(xhr.response);
    var token = theResponse.access_token;
    this.location = "<reflection page URL>?access_token=" + token;
