I am working on an application to read a yahoo user's contact details. This is a server application with no UI. The application stores the user's yahoo user id and password.
OAuth data flow does not allow for this. I have signed up my application and sent in the get_request_token request with oauth_callback=oob. I guess I was hoping the data returned would give me a clue as to what I should do.
What is the method I should use to authenticate so I can access the contact API.
How does one obtain an oauth verifier code for a desktop application? If seems that this is the missing golden nugget in a number of these oauth threads.
Thanks! ttyl Dima
The user will receive the code when they authorize the request token. Your app should take this as an input and use the received oauth_verifier to exchange the approved request token for an access token.
