Did Yammer App Registrations just start forcing https for redirect urls?

Contributor

Hey Yammer Devs,

 

We've set up a few apps to play around with things internally on our intranet test boxes. All http not https - its all be working fine - but I'm finding that if I try to save a new or edit and existing app on the client applications site https://www.yammer.com/client_applications/ I'm getting a new error - changes are not saved unless you specfiy an https for your redirect.

 

Image attached.

 

Did something change? I dont see an explicit reference in the App documentation? so putting it out there..

Rich - Thanks for your question. Our security team has made a recent change. New and updated apps must redirect to https services. Existing apps with http redirect URIs will continue to work through 2016 -- to give us time to work with developers to update their redirect URIs.

Ok - so message to your security team - communicate on the road map site :) notify your customers and update your documentation.

Actually it looks like this page has been updated today. https://developer.yammer.com/docs/app-registration now states https redirect. The notification to existing app users and item on the roadmap are still required steps from my perspective.

I understand, and will share your feedback. The good news is that existing apps will continue to work as-is. It is only when an update is needed when devs will be asked to switch to an https Redirect URI.  I've asked for a developer blog post -- I'll post the link here when it's up.
