OAuth 2.0 Authorization Code Flow Made Easy

One more building block falls in place toward building the Poly API API and Event consumption platform — support for the OAuth 2 Authorization Code Grant Type flow. With this in place, developers can more easily and securely build integrations and applications that access resources on behalf of a user. With this approach we support all Authorization Servers that implement to spec, whether IDaaS, in house, or an authorization service for a given product. Looking forward to #chatgptplugins generation (likely the next demo I’ll publish) these functions will be essential to allow for in-line authentication on a need to know basis in the middle of a conversation vs forcing up front authentication of the user. The idea being that you should be able to view public content and then sign in as needed.

Demo below, fair warning, it’s pretty technical and solid understanding of #oauth2 is needed.
