OAuth - Authenication and Authorization

Error during "Getting your Authentication Code" process

During the authorization process a password form is presented (url: sso.digikey.com), in this form you will use the credentials for your My Digi-Key account.

If you do not have a My Digi-Key account it can be created here: https://www.digikey.com/MyDigiKey/Register

If you do not know your My Dig-Key account credentials or username they can be reset or found here: https://www.digikey.com/MyDigiKey/login

Do I need to use OAuth? May I have a permanent token instead?

Digi-Key has found that the implementation of OAUth 2.0 is the simplest way to mutually be assured of a user's identity and the user's permitted access to our APIs. For the reason that sensitive information is exposed by our APIs, Digi-Key will only allow clients authenticated via OAuth 2.0 access.  Dig-Key strictly uses the three-legged OAuth flow.

Digi-Key will not permit access via permanent access tokens nor via any other equally less secure processes.

How do I reset my application client secret?

Your application client secret is stored encrypted so we cannot retrieve the unencrypted version to tell you the value if you forget it.

You can reset it, which will update the stored value and return the new value to you.

To do that click 'Apps' in the main menu, click on the application in question and then you can click the 'Reset' link in the 'Client Secret' section.

Your new secret will be displayed at the top of the page.
