How to Generate OAuth Client Credentials — Client ID and Client Secret

Jama cloud hosted users can now authenticate ReST calls via OAuth through ConnectALL. To use this as the method of authentication, follow the below procedure.

  1. Login to JamaCloud with the basic credential
  2. Navigate to change the user settings and Click the "Set API Credentials" button



  3. Enter a name for your application/integration



  4. Click the "Create API Credentials" button



  5. Be sure to copy your Client ID and Client SecretThe secret is only displayed once!

Now, configure the client credential in ConnectALL to exchange for an access token which will make request to the ReST API. This access token will be viable for a specific time. When the access token expires, ConnectALL internally owns a fail-over logic which will revive the access token periodically ensuring no hindrance to the iterative ReST API calls it makes.
