Expect bad behavior and open issues


An open standard for token-based authentication and authorization on the Internet.

Gancio supports OAuth 2.0, an authorization framework described in RFC 6749 that allows third-party applications to obtain limited access to an HTTP service on behalf of a resource owner, through the use of a standardized authorization flow that generates a client access token to be used with HTTP requests.

To obtain an OAuth token for a Gancio instance, make sure that you allow your users to specify the domain they want to connect to before login. Use that domain to acquire a client id/secret and then proceed with normal OAuth 2.

Create client

Create a new application to obtain OAuth2 credentials.
