Roadmap for enabling OAuth 2.0 token-based authentication

Here are the high level steps for enabling OAuth 2.0 token-based authentication. Consult the links for detailed instructions for each step.


  1. Review Software requirements and restrictions.
  2. Ensure that you have installed the latest Connections Mobile app from the Apple App Store or Google Play, and Connections Server fixes that are required for OAuth-based login.
  3. Configure your OAuth 2.0 Authorization Server to recognize the Connections Mobile app. See Configuring the OAuth 2.0 Authorization Server.
  4. Configure the Connections Mobile server with the proper OAuth configuration for your environment. See Configuring the Connections Mobile server for OAuth.
  5. Alternately, configure WebSphere Application Server or HCL Security Access Manager (ISAM) as the OAuth Authorization server.
