oAuth 2.0 Support

Started by Ashik Ahmed -   in API Authentication

Hi Xero

Any chance you will support oAuth2.0 ?

oAuth1.0 and it's payload signing doesn't work very well in various environments including node.js

With rest of the world moving to oAuth 2.0 - I hope XERO does too
@Ashik - we're certainly looking into this.

I suggest you vote for this on our Uservoice forum so we can gauge how much demand there is for this right at this time.

Hi XERO,

It is now 8 years since this request was lodged.

OAuth 1.0 has been officially deprecated as of April 20 2012 because of session fixation attack.
See https://developers.hubspot.com/docs/faq/oauth-1-deprecation
