OAuth 2.0

Clay uses OAuth 2.0 for authorization, an open standard used by API providers. OAuth 2.0 is a specification that allows third-party services to make requests on behalf of a user without accessing passwords and other sensitive information. If you are unfamiliar with OAuth 2.0, you can learn more about it here; official OAuth spec.

You can set up OAuth in a few simple steps:

  • Register your app

  • Get the access token (client id & secret)

We recommend using a library to take care of the essentials of OAuth. Get in touch to learn more about how we can integrate smart locks for your business.
