how to obtain oauth token from webpage xmlhttprequest

I have a website that I'd like to have list the items from my merchant's inventory.

How do I retrieve the auth_token and use said token to access the API and retrieve my results? I've gone through the Docs over and over to no avail. I keep getting 401 errors.

!!Please help!!

Calling "/oauth/token?" from Single page AngularJs Web App.

Hi,

At what point of the docs have you gotten up to? The request to /oauth/token is made at this point: https://docs.clover.com/build/oauth-2...

Do you have a code?

Hi Ive not gotten the code I'm not getting the response param for the code. My call is sent as the user enters the website using http get "https://sandbox.dev.clover.com/oauth/token?clientid=CID&clientsecret=CST&code=" just as is.

Is this correct? Ive spent days on this.

My flow is as follows:

User hits website. Http request is sent using GET to 'https://sandbox.dev.clover.com/oauth/token?clientid=CID&clientsecret=CST&code=' I dont get a response code. Only get code if i Click on the app in my merchant development window. Would like to get/generate response code on user entering the website and have inventory iterated/a json response, when button clicked for API query

Hi,

It maybe a bit different because you're using xmlhttprequestwithout a backend but here's a quick video on how to retrieve an OAuth token creating a webapp: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6riNP...

I hope this helps.

Best,
