» Create an OAuth Client

POST /organizations/:organization_name/oauth-clients

Parameter Description
:organization_name The name of the organization that will be connected to the VCS provider. The organization must already exist in the system, and the user must have permissions to initiate the connection.

This endpoint allows you to create a VCS connection between an organization and a VCS provider (GitHub or GitLab) for use when creating or setting up workspaces. By using this API endpoint, you can provide a pre-generated OAuth token string instead of going through the process of creating a GitHub or GitLab OAuth Application. To learn how to generate one of these token strings for your VCS provider, you can read the following documentation:

Status Response Reason
201 JSON API document (type: "oauth-clients") OAuth Client successfully created
404 JSON API error object Organization not found or user unauthorized to perform action
422 JSON API error object Malformed request body (missing attributes, wrong types, etc.)

» Request Body

This POST endpoint requires a JSON object with the following properties as a request payload.

Properties without a default value are required.

Key path Type Default Description
data.type string Must be "oauth-clients".
data.attributes.service-provider string The VCS provider being connected with. Valid options are "github", "github_enterprise", "bitbucket_hosted", "gitlab_hosted", "gitlab_community_edition", or "gitlab_enterprise_edition".
data.attributes.name string null An optional display name for the OAuth Client. If left null, the UI will default to the display name of the VCS provider.
data.attributes.http-url string The homepage of your VCS provider (e.g. "https://github.com" or "https://ghe.example.com")
data.attributes.api-url string The base URL of your VCS provider's API (e.g. https://api.github.com or "https://ghe.example.com/api/v3")
data.attributes.oauth-token-string string The token string you were given by your VCS provider
