Authenticating with Deputy Overview

Authentication - Oauth or Permanent Token?

Deputy offers two ways to obtain API tokens when integrating with the Deputy Platform.

Deputy uses Oauth 2.0 as the authentication flow for obtaining an API access token.

The Oauth 2.0 flow follows the industry standard Oauth 2.0 security standard and makes it much easier for users to get connected. Instead of having to configure a token in their installation backend, you can send them to a Deputy login process where they can authorise your application to connect to their install.
