Is there actual API documentation?

Looks like what you attached are attempts, but what does the documentation say about the api?

Hi,

Thanks,

karthik

I'm so sorry but I don't see any information about the APIs you are actually calling and how they are defined.

All I see is your code to call the APIs.

Were you to use something like Postman, are you able to make successful calls? What do the postman calls look like?

yes i am having 4 apis like this .But in my case what is the output i got in first api i passed this access token input to the second api.

Hello @karthik2,

 

If you're trying to use OAuth2 Client Credentials Flow (which I assumed based on your parameter names), then you're missing few things -- grant_type, content type, etc. Also, I'm really not sure that you can pass values like client_id as headers. Normally they are sent as application/x-www-form-urlencoded.

 

More details and examples here: https://auth0.com/docs/flows/guides/client-credentials/call-api-client-credentials

I've had success retrieving OAuth tokens as follows:

 

//build auth string
var auth = myClientID + ":" + myClientSecret;
//base64 encode it
var authentication = base64EncodeString(auth);
//set the content for the request
var content = "grant_type=client_credentials&scope=any";

//execute the request
var params = {
	headers: {"Authorization":"Basic " + authentication,"Content-Type":"application/x-www-form-urlencoded","Accept":"application/json"} /* JSON */,
	ignoreSSLErrors: true /* BOOLEAN */,
	url: "https://someurl.com/token" /* STRING */,
	content: content /* JSON */,
	timeout: 300 /* NUMBER */
};

//use post text to post the content, this will return a string
var responseJson = Resources["ContentLoaderFunctions"].PostText(params);
//the headers are appended at the end with a ^ character, split those off
var split = responseJson.split("^");
//convert the string of the response to a JSON
var json = JSON.parse(split[0]);
//get the access_token from the JSON
var result = json["access_token"];

 

Then, you can make your next API call with the token.

Hi @karthik2, I think the Resources["ContentLoaderFunctions"].PostJSON will do the trick.

However, the error details seem to be printed in Script Error Log, so could you please provide the error details?

BTW, you mentioned that you successfully obtained the results by using POSTMAN, could you also provide the details? (e.g., screenshots will be fine)

Hi paichung,

I already tried in all ways. I want to explain one more time i am having api like below

https://corpqa.sts.com/oauth2/token

after executing this api i get the ouput like

access token:"ajkhdnjkhdsmgflkjuhsrfdgn/fdlkjhpg8yusoio790lfdgbmkljoifkvlbm,klgdjbom"

token type:'bearer'

expires in:'3600'

whatever the access token i got like above i need to pass that api input for the second api.

here my problem is i want to write the code for aboive api in thingworx.please help me for this.this api is working in postman tool.i am not getting the access token in thingworx.

So you are having issues with even getting the initial token correct?

(if that part is working correctly you can just follow Rob's example)

 

Can you show us the Postman call?

Easiest is to export it, but edit the json to obscure the secret.

 

Also Rob's example shows a treatment of the response as string, If a full JSON is returned you can also treat that return as a JSON object.

Hi paichung,

here i want to write the code for acceessing the token by using url .so what is the code for that access token.

Thanks,

karthik

Which access token are you referring to? The token from the site you want to access afterwards with the token?

Did you look at Rob's example?
