Operational update: Apps using App Login Flow will require registration on the Developer Portal
The Developer Portal allows you to build apps that integrate with Teamwork using any of our product REST APIs. It gives you easy access to the authentication details that are needed to create an app or service using any of our public APIs. It gives Developers an easy and secure way to access the tools they need to begin building an app.
As of 31st August 2021, all apps and integrations using App Login Flow will require to be registered with the Developer Portal, otherwise no tokens will be issued from that day on. Whether your app is using basic authentication or our App Login Flow without the Developer Portal credentials, we want to help you to get your app up to date using our latest authentication mechanism.
The Developer Portal allows you to create apps and use the credentials to authenticate your users. How does it work? Let’s take a look!
Registering your app with the Developer Portal
Step 1: Set your publisher details
The first step you need to take is to simply set up your company details under the Developer Portal. These details will then be used to verify your company and app.
Step 2: Create an app
You’ll need the following information in order to create an app:
Name – The name of your app, this will show on your apps consent screen
Icon – This is the icon shown to users during authentication and installation
Description – Add a brief description about what the app does
Product Scope – Which Teamwork products your app intends to use. You must select at least one however, this may be updated. If needed, it will require your users to consent to access APIs under the new scopes.
Redirect URls – Return URI for your app, you must add at least one Redirect URl
From here, you’ll be presented with our app details screen, consisting of a “Credentials” tab. Navigate here, and you’ll see:
These credentials will need to be added to your App Login Flow:
Adding client_id and redirect_uri to your first launchpad/login call
Adding code, client_id, redirect_uri, client_secret to token.json. These are all required fields.
