The Connections Cloud Partner Platform mandates that all partner applications make use of OAuth to call Connections Cloud APIs. This is based on assumption that the partner application is a web application. Use of OAuth for desktop or mobile application poses some unique challenges for distribution and management of OAuth credentials. As a result, please consult the Connections Cloud team if your application is either a desktop or mobile application.
Connections Cloud currently supports both OAuth 1.0a and 2.0. OAuth 1.0a is the default version. Note that OAuth 2.0 is not backwards compatible with previous versions of OAuth.
