Connect By O Auth

Developer Preview

This API is subject to change. Bug fixes and new features will be released based on developer feedback throughout the preview period.

Connects to an external calendar using the OAuth authorization protocol.

The authorization flow should take place as follows:

  1. Send a request to the endpoint with the appropriate parameters.
  2. Redirect the user to the URL received in the response.
  3. The user authorizes access.
  4. The user is redirected to the URL you provide in the redirectUrl body parameter, with a query parameter connectionId containing the new connection ID.

If the attempt to connect fails, the user is still redirected to the URL you provide in the redirectUrl body parameter, but with a query parameter error containing one of the following values:

  • reject: The user rejected the authorization request.
  • unsupported: Connecting to the user's external account type is not supported by the provider.
  • internal: An error unrelated to the client or the request that prevents the server from fulfilling the request.

Once a connection is successfully created, use List Events to obtain an up-to-date list of events in the connected external calendars.

This endpoint validates that the specified schedule is owned by the Wix user connecting the calendar, or that the caller has the Manage External Calendars or Manage Business Calendar permission scope.

If the schedule's ownership changes, the connection to the external calendar is automatically disconnected.

Note: Use List Providers to find out whether to connect to a particular provider using this endpoint or Connect by Credentials.
