Getting Credentials

Configuring credentials in Cobalt

App settings page lets you configure the authentication settings for an OAuth 2.0 based application. For your customers to provide you authorization to access their data, they would first need to install your application. This page lets you set up your application credentials.

Setting up application client credentials

Cobalt lets you use pre-configured applications to play around. You can do so by selecting Use our credentials. However, if you wish to use your own application, select Use your own credentials. Provide the aquired Client Id and Client secret and save it.

Configuring Scopes

Cobalt lets you configure what permissions to ask from your users while they install your application. The scopes can be added or removed from the App settings page, under Permissions & Scopes section.

For some applications Cobalt sets mandatory scopes which cannot be removed. Additional scopes can be selected from the drop down. Cobalt also has the provision to add any custom scopes supported by the respective platform.

OAuth Scopes

Once the scopes has been added to the application in Cobalt, go to your HighLevel Marketplace account and update the scopes as added on Cobalt.

Select the OAuth App created for Cobalt > Click on Settings in side menu > Add the scopes as added in Cobalt under Scopes section > Click on Save.

If you are facing scopes missing or invalid scope error. Make sure you are not passing any custom scope not supported by the platform. And, the scopes selected here are identical to the ones selected in the platform.

HighLevel Single Webhook URL

To get the User Events through Webhooks in High Level, the OAuth app needs to be submitted for review and published.

If you wish to create an orchestration where a workflow is being triggered when some operation occurs in High Level, you’d need to subscribe to High Level’s Webhook. Cobalt provides a single webhook URL to manage such event triggers for all your customers.

  2. Copy the Single Webhook Url

    Webhook Events will be disabled in High Level app if the appropriate scopes are not added to the OAuth app.
