Teamwork Cloud 19.0 LTR SP2 Documentation


OAuth is an open-standard authorization protocol. It allows you to authorize API access to TWCloud Admin and other modeling tools. Once access has been granted, the authorized application can utilize the API on behalf of the user. Only users with Configure Server permission can register and manage consumer keys. After registering the key, you must approve it, which can be done in the Consumer keys data table. When the consumer key is approved, its status will change to Approved. This feature enables you to easily change the status of consumer keys, allowing you to control users' sign-in requests. 

The consumer key is unique, but the assigned consumer name and consumer secret can be changed. If changes occurred, the Administrator should provide a new consumer name and secret to the user. 

Using TWCloud Admin you can:
