Twitter OAuth2

Hi,

I’m trying to follow this tutorial for making requests on behalf of Twitter users: OAuth 2.0 Making requests on behalf of users | Docs | Twitter Developer Platform

I have successfully implemented “log in with Twitter” using the OAuth login block in the UI builder (works incredibly easy, thanks):

Is there a way to use this block for the steps described in the tutorial above? I don’t think I understand “fields mappings” or “scope” but maybe those could be the solution so I don’t have to construct an Authorize URL?

I only understand half of the guide so I’m not even sure I’m on the right track. I appreciate any pointers on how to get this to work :slight_smile:

An optional note to improve the documentation: I believe this page is outdated: Social Settings - Backendless REST API Documentation I believe the callback URLs for step 5 of the Twitter process should be the one from “Login providers” in backendless instead of the ones listed there.

Hello @app.monster

Unfortunately, with this block it is impossible to implement what is described. The block allows you to use only a login through a social network. You need to write your own logic to get a token to work with Twitter API.
Thanks for the message about the outdated documentation. We will remove that information shortly. Use this documentation Social and OAuth2 Logins - Backendless REST API Documentation

Inna

Thanks, Inna!
