Is the Yahoo OAuth Service Down?

Hi,

I'm trying to implement OAuth access to Y!Mail contacts and getting stuck, well, at level 0. Specifically when I try and do a get_request_token call I'm getting a 404 error on the given url I'm supposed to check:

https://api.login.yahoo.com/oauth/v2/get_request_token

Any thoughts? From other forum traffic I can see that this url was valid as of 25 Feb. Did things change recently or is the OAuth endpoint just down temporarily?

Thanks
Scott

  • Can you specify the API with which you are seeing issues? If you are using any social APIs, As announced earlier, they are now HTTPS only. Please change your endpoints as described in this post: http://yahoodevelopers.tumblr.com/post/75633763287/yahoo-contacts-and-profile-apis-move-to-https

  • We've changed to https but now we're receiving timeouts constantly, after several retries the request https://api.login.yahoo.com/oauth/v2/get_request_token works.
