Access Token Retrieval

Applies to ReadyAPI 3.10, last modified on October 07, 2021

After adding an OAuth 1 profile to a request, you enter an access token, get a new token from the server, add settings for the profile, or define how access and refresh tokens should be handled.

To use OAuth 1 authorization in requests, you need to specify the Access Token and Token Secret values.

Retrieving an OAuth 1 Access Token

If you do not have Access Token and Token Secret, click Get Token. This will invoke a dialog where you can configure the access token retrieval settings:
