🗝 Authentication

Oauth 2.0

Flow Credit Platform uses the OAuth 2.0 protocol for authentication and authorization.

To start, obtain OAuth 2.0 client credentials with your API provider (Flow provides credentials for Issuers and Issuers provide credentials for Originators).

Use these credentials to request an access token from the Flow Finance Authorization Server, extracts a token from the response, and send the token in the following API requests. A token expires in 3600 seconds so you don't have to get a new one for every request.


Originator Token x Issuer Token

Both use the same endpoint to get their tokens. Each token will give them permission to execute some sort of task. These tasks are divided under "Issuer Endpoints" and "Originator Endpoints" at the left side menu bar.
