Troubleshooting Authorization Issues for Twilio's Enterprise API

This meeting involved participants referred to as State Changers troubleshooting an authentication issue. The conversation revolved around retrieving a bearer token from an API using OAuth protocol.

Key insights include: 1. State Changers were attempting to connect to an API using OAuth, but were encountering a 500 error. 2. There was a discussion of the discrepancy between a public client and a confidential client in terms of OAuth. The public client mode was suggested. 3. Authorization Basic authentication was explored, discussing that it should be comprised of a Base64 encoded . 4. It was identified that the API they were trying to access was an 'Enterprise API' of Twitter. They faced confusion as they couldn't find where to input Client ID and Client Secret. 5. They looked through the Twitter API documentation to find that Basic Authentication was preferred for Enterprise APIs. However, they also discovered 'App Only Authentication' which seemed like a more applicable method. 6. The State Changers concluded the meeting by deciding to create a variable in Xano based on their consumer key and secret, concatenate them with a colon, and then Base64 encode them to solve the issue based on their findings in the Twitter API documentation. This meeting may be helpful for developers troubleshooting OAuth authentication, especially when integrating with APIs that may require different forms of authentication like basic or App Only Authentication. Applications or systems used or mentioned during the meeting include Xano, OAuth, Twilio, Twitter API and Base64 encoding.
