No other configuration parameters are necessary (nor available). The OAuth authentication process is described by the following diagram:
In the diagram, only the step
G represents the actual communication with the API (extraction of data).
The final authorization section of the Generic Extractor configuration is generated between
G. When a component is registered, the steps
F of the process are handled by
KBC (and the end-user).
To develop and test a new component with the OAuth authorization, go through
F manually. At the last step, you obtain a response containing the fields
Then, inject the OAuth credentials into the configuration root:
authorization field has a single property
oauth_api, which has a single property
credentials with three child properties:
#data— contains the response from the service provider, the response is a JSON string (not an object!).
appKey— contains the Consumer Key.
#appSecret— contains the Consumer Secret (use an empty string if not used by the service provider).
With the above configuration, Generic Extractor generates the
Authorization header; the signature
method used is HMAC-SHA1. For example:
Authorization: OAuth oauth_consumer_key="1234", oauth_nonce="72469d96572dabb4d0ea02b057ea4f246d722b72", oauth_signature="zl0y5CyySCPj8IqODV3Egjqgg6Q%3D", oauth_signature_method="HMAC-SHA1", oauth_timestamp="1492904452", oauth_token="JohnDoe1234", oauth_version="1.0"
The full configuration is, e.g.:
