Authentication

Authentication is the very first step of integration at Appy Pie Connect. Once the app is selected to make a Connect at Appy Pie Connect by the user, the next step is to authenticate the account to authorize the access of the app.

Authentication gives access to a particular account available in the app, this helps the user to connect one account of the app at Appy Pie Connect. Once a specific account is connected any new or updated information can be processed in further steps of Appy Pie Connect. This authentication will remain working until the account is revoked or credentials are changed. Also in the case of OAuth V2, the token refresh may be required.

Once the process for authentication is completed for your app by the user, the same app credentials can be used for making different connections at Appy Pie Connect. Other account details can also be added in Connect for the particular app as per the user requirement. This facilitates the user to build different Connects for personal and business use.

While integrating your app at Appy Pie Connect you define the process to authenticate your app through API calls. This authentication will lead your app users to verify their account to access the data. You can test the account authentication with your credentials and can use it further to test various triggers and actions for your app. This will help you to know how the Connect will work for the general app users.

What Authentication Schemes does AppyPie Connect Support

To add or edit the data in the app account user is required to authenticate the account for that particular app. Appy Pie Connect does not allow any changes in the account without proper authentication. However, there may be an exception in the case of feed-based apps such as news or weather where the user will exclusively get the feeds/information or in case of utilities such as format conversion tools or search engines. For any other app, where the data permissions are required to add or update, the authentication is a priority.

Thus, as soon as you start with integration and add the basic required information, Appy Pie Connect will take you to the next step to “Set Up the Authentication”. Without completing this step you cannot move further to the steps of adding Triggers and Actions.

For now, Appy Pie Connect supports OAuth V2 scheme to set up authentication for your app.

Appy Pie Connect works with some of the most common authorization schemes such as Basic Auth, API key Auth, and OAuth V2.
