Problems Generating a test token on Yammer (making an app)

Occasional Visitor

I am attempting to make an app for my business, Returnhound, on Yammer in order to generate a test token and use Yammmer Connect features. I have been given a client ID after entering basic details and my redirect URI is https://returnhound.com.

However, when I input this data into the text:

https://www.yammer.com/oauth2/authorize?client_id=[:client_id]&redirect_uri=[:redirect_uri]

I receive the error "invalid client application" and cannot authorise. Please offer any reasons for this and what error I am making.

Thanks,

Sahil

What browser are you using for the call to the below URL?

 

https://www.yammer.com/oauth2/authorize?client_id=[:client_id]&redirect_uri=[:redirect_uri]

 

Remember that you don't need the brackets or the colons in the actual URL you put in the browser.

 

So it should be something like this:

 

https://www.yammer.com/oauth2/authorize?client_id=F8WS184esKGGYVidn3Gd&redirect_uri=https://returnhound.com

Does that work for you?

 

Also, your existing application should come with a "Generate a developer token for this applicaiton" button.  Try using that and seeing what you come up with.
