The next step would be to send another request
https://sandbox.dev.clover.com/oauth/token?client_id={appId}&client_secret={appSecret}&code={codeUrlParam}
  • App ID: Your app's id
  • App Secret: You can get this from your application dashboard
  • Code: You get this from the previous response you received
On a succesful request, the response will include the API token that can be used to make subsequent API calls.

All of this is documented in our OAuth docs: https://docs.clover.com/build/oauth-2-0/

Hi @miguel

Thanks for your reply, I got the API token from below url, I triedyour given URL but it is not working.

https://api.clover.com:443/oauth/token?client_id={appId}&client_secret={appSecret}&code={codeUrlParam}

Well now I am facing 1 last problem :)

When I am fetching the employees list by predefined token it is working fine, but when I am going to fetch the employees list by that token which is generated by Access Token Method (OAuth above method) I got the error 401 Unauthorized.

You need to make sure the app that's generating the OAuth has the correct permissions.

Here's a quick video of how to build a WebApp with OAuth.
