OAuth request 4504a49cff1a77a317fc47bd8e9fc030[edit]

Hi Destokado! The OATH grant ("Access two-factor authentication (OATH) information for self and others") is not given out easily, and you almost certainly don't need it. If you explain what functionality you are planning, I can help figure out what (if anything) you need instead. --Tgr (WMF) (talk) 14:53, 9 June 2021 (UTC)Reply

@Tgr (WMF): Of course, I only need to be able to log in my users, as they will have some score, and I need to track what they do in the app in order to award them points accordingly. So, In reality I just need to track who they are to award points, keep a log of their activities in my platform (sort of a user page, where you can see contributions, score, badges, etc.) and to make searches with their username (get me all this user's edits in enwiki, for example). Hope it's enough. --Destokado (talk) 14:58, 9 June 2021 (UTC)Reply

Essentially, I want to use OAuth to avoid creating a login system with passwords, security, etc for my tool --Destokado (talk) 10:36, 16 June 2021 (UTC)Reply

Sorry for the slow reply! If you just need to be able to get the user's English Wikipedia username, you'll only need the minimal permission ("User identity verification only, no ability to read pages or act on a user's behalf"). You can then use the profile endpoint to fetch the user's identity.

There is unfortunately no way to modify an existing OAuth consumer application, so please apply again. --Tgr (WMF) (talk) 21:44, 16 June 2021 (UTC)Reply
