What exactly do we need for the OAuth Redirect URI portion of the application?
The oAuth dance occurs as follows:
- User goes to your website
- User clicks login
- Send user to Twitch
- User auths the app
- User is redirected to the specified URL
- You grab the code and exchange it for a token
- You use the token for API Requests.
For your question I assume you refer to the step 5 redirect URL. That would be the page that is expecting a
?code=foo to perform the login functions and code/token exchange.
So that would be page on your website.
https://example.com/somecallback for example
We’re trying to get access to the API currently, we don’t have a website set up.
https://dev.twitch.tv/dashboard/apps/create. On this site, the 2nd portion is what we have question on.
Contains the notes about obtaining keys.
If you don’t intend to make use of authentication as documented here https://dev.twitch.tv/docs/authentication/#getting-tokens
And only need a ClientID for API requests enter http://localhost/ as the redirectURI
