Dear Friends, I wanted to configure the authentication for my services using OAuth 2.0(Azure profile). While configuring there is a section of Redirect URL. what is Redirect URL? How can we configure the Redirect URL? I tried with the value http://localhost:8080 as I read in the documentation but it did not work. Can anyone explain here also what URL should we provide to get the access token ?
You need to google OAuth v2 process flow diagrams to understand OAuth 2 processing (or 1 actually). Once you understand the processing flow/sequence you'll then understand the concept.
However, i scraped the following content from another website:
"Redirect URLs are a critical part of the OAuth flow. After a user successfully authorizes an application, the authorization server will redirect the user back to the application with either an authorization code or access token in the URL"
Hope this helps,
if this helped answer the post, could you please mark it as 'solved'? Also if you consider whether the title of your post is relevant? Perhaps if the post is solved, it might make sense to update the Subject header field of the post to something more descriptive? This will help people when searching for problems. Ta
