The WSC OAuth-Provider allows your WSC installation to be an OAuth-Provider. Therefore other applications supporting OAuth can use your WSC installation for authentication of the users.


There are two group permissions:

Name Type Description
Can use OAuth User Allows an user to authorize applications
Can manage OAuth-Clients Admin Can manage OAuth-Clients


Configuration > Security > OAuth-Provider:

  • Send Emails to the user if client is authorized for the first time - user get’s an email with information about his authorization. You should enable this option e.g. when using password grant type.


Please use only encrypted connections (SSL/TLS) for accessing the OAuth-Endpoints, as personal information (e.g. email address) is transfered or can be accessed. Also, use POST for transfering parameters wherever possible.
