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.

Publishing Teamwork App

When the app is created in the Teamwork Developer Portal, it’s status is shown as In development. This means your app is currently in development mode and it can only be used by the Teamwork account it was created under.

Once you are ready to publish your app and make it available to all Teamwork users, please contact
