You can create an OAuth 2.0 client to authenticate user data across apps.

You must be a Tenant security administrator to create and work with OAuth 2.0 clients.

Enable OAuth client dialog and activation button.

To create an OAuth 2.0 client:

  1. The first time you open OAuth clients from the menu, select Enable OAuth.
  2. Select New in the upper right corner.
    The Create OAuth 2.0 client dialog displays.
  3. Enter a Name for your new OAuth 2.0 client.
    The alpha-numeric name can contain either ? or ! marks. You cannot use other punctuation marks or special characters.
  4. Select a grant Type from the dropdown. Either of these two methods can retrieve the access token:
    • Authorization code grant 
    • Device grant

      • Authorization code grant displays the client authorization request in a web browser or mobile app. You can approve or reject this request. If approved, users are redirected back to the client with a temporary code.  The client exchanges this code with an access token. 
      • Device grant is a type of extension. It enables devices without browsers or limited input capability to exchange a prior device code with a fresh access token. 
      • Device grant flow is disabled with SSO.
  5. Enter the Allowed callback URLs. We support up to 60 URLs.
    Example: https://anaplan.com/example

    Note: Callback URLs may contain sensitive information. The URLs must be specified to ensure:
