Authentication

Before integrating with the Evance API, your app requires authentication credentials which are exchanged for an Access Token. Evance implements the following methods of authentication:

 Grant Types Public Apps Private Apps

OAuth 2.0 Authorization Code

The Authorization Code Grant Type is used by both web and native apps to get an access token after a user authorises an app. This grant type is available to both Public and Private Apps.

OAuth 2.0 Client Credentials

Available to Private Apps only. Used when there is no third party involved for service calls or on behalf of the user/account who created the App.

OAuth 2.0 JWT Bearer

Available to Private Apps only. Used to receive an access token without transmitting sensitive information, such as the client secret. Hence, this is a more secure method over OAuth Client Credentials authentication.
