Need help to get this plugin working to exchange a code for access_token and save said token via web storage local storage db. :pray:
Discord - Access_token Plugin | Bubble

You have set the type to client credentials, but this oAuth2 process doesn’t accept code. You probably doesn’t have the correct type (normally it’s authorization_code and sometimes it’s just code).

im confused then as why my plugin works but on bubble it does not @Jici

the code part you are speaking of is returned via the oauth2 redirect… i got that the code but the exchange wont work inside of bubble only plugin

thank you again for attempting to help me it means alot its been a few days ive been on this issue

Yes, but in the plugin, you have selected client_credentials for the type. This is nt compatible with the authorization_code from the redirect.

You should share screenshot of your setting in Bubble instead of a link to plugin if the issue is in API connector

um no i havnt … im confused

i can attempt to share as much as i can but i dont want to accidently leak my own access_token lol

Actually, you have set an HTTP Basic auth. This is not the case.
You have two options: oAuth2 User Grant flow or none.
If none, you will do each step manually. Use a link to the authorize url, use Get data from page url with the Code and process the code into api Token endpoint.

You cannot ask bubble to handle the auth and try to do it manually in your calls after.

Alright so @Jici on login a user is brought too

then from here the user is brought back threw which brings back to the page but in the image as you see + the copied url im given a code i put that code in from the url
into the call and get my token just fine<code>

the user is logged in but i cant exchange the access code for token or figure out how to get the access_token ive tried via saving to user saving to web storage and more but i cant seem to get this to work if need be if you like i can spin up a new testing discord account for you if you do not have one (call it a dummy account more or less lol)

heck i dont mind even inviting you over into the plugin if im able to

But below we can see the code

i can save said code to said user via the db as we see the

but yet when i use a action or even set my plugin for the code exchange to attempt to get access_token it wont go threw always error wrong code but its the same code i would of used to even autheticate the plugin its self of course not same exact code as it changes and expires in a short time but not short enought i cant run a api or use it to thus later add user to the server after but i can not do this with out the above so i hope these things help explaining more

The api call for this aspect for the code to get token is as such

http basic auth which is suppose to be used from what I’m being told from reading the documentation over at discord - which works btw look below i was provided my token and refresh token as well

so im highly confused as what todo here m8

attempting this m8 atm brb

You don’t use basic auth in Bubble API Connector. You set to None/self-handled because this iswhat you are doing.
NowYou need to store the access token in DB and use it in other API endpoint.
You have the access token according from your screenshot. Copy it and initialize other API call using an header on each other call “Authorization: Bearer accesstokenhere”

isnt that my token tho no matter who makes the call as im the bot owner thats what im understanding from documentation here as i already have this call and it returns the bots access_token or mine not the users

Client Credentials Grant

The client credential flow is a quick and easy way for bot developers to get their own bearer tokens for testing purposes. By making a POST request to the token URL with a grant type of client_credentials, using Basic authentication with your client id as the username and your client secret as the password, you will be returned an access token for the bot owner. Therefore, always be super-extra-very-we-are-not-kidding-like-really-be-secure-make-sure-your-info-is-not-in-your-source-code careful with your client_id and client_secret. We don’t take kindly to imposters around these parts.

Client credentials is a different thing. The authorize url use the authorization_code grant, not the client credentials.

:pray:thank you for taking this precious time of yours to help me out btw

could i please invite you to the plugin this is very confusing to me and actually ive been stuck on it for 8 days now 4 days of no sleep

im not asking you to write the whole plugin lol i can do whats needed but i need more info im a visual learner

again heres my confusion your telling me not to run the plugin using what im using and use none or self handled it dosnt work
ive tried the documentation even says as so

Make a post request using basic auth

for bot developers to get their own bearer tokens for testing purposes this is my token not the said users i have the calls for users already m8

just how to implicate it with bubble

also this is the first call in my api ive shared in the forum

so thank you kindly for your help :pray: but you seem to be as lost as i am
