AUTH Redirect URL incorrect

Post by fyaconiello » Thu Jul 18, 2013 3:38 pm

When I try to get an auth token from the API it redirects me into an error page. It appears that the configured redirect url has an issue.

If I go in my browser to: ... &password=*******

It redirects me here: ... b2545db05e (this page of course doesn't exist)

I believe it should be redirecting to here: ... b2545db05e

This issue has now been resolved. The URL was not complete and I have now modified this.

You should now be able to reach the URL without error.

I'm attempting to connect to the REST API programmatically as part of a job board. The website needs to be able to make REST calls w/o user interaction. I got the following function from another post in this forum and people seem to be having luck using it. However it isn't working for me.

Code: Select all

function getAuthCode()
    $url = "";
    $url = sprintf($url, CLIENT_ID, USER, PASS);
    $data = sprintf("action=Login&username=%s&password=%s", USER, PASS);
    echo sprintf("GET BULLHORN ACCESS TOKEN URL:\n%s\n", $url);

    $curl = curl_init( $url ); 
    curl_setopt($curl, CURLOPT_URL, $url);
    curl_setopt($curl, CURLOPT_RETURNTRANSFER, true);
    curl_setopt($curl, CURLOPT_HEADER, true);
    #curl_setopt($curl, CURLOPT_FOLLOWLOCATION, true);
    curl_setopt($curl, CURLOPT_AUTOREFERER, true);
    curl_setopt($curl, CURLOPT_CONNECTTIMEOUT, 120);
    curl_setopt($curl, CURLOPT_TIMEOUT, 120);
    #curl_setopt($curl, CURLOPT_NOBODY, true);
    $content = curl_exec( $curl );
    #print_r(curl_getinfo($curl, CURLINFO_EFFECTIVE_URL));
    curl_close( $curl );//die($content);  
    if(preg_match('#Location: (.*)#', $content, $r))
        $l = trim($r[1]);
        $temp = preg_split("/code=/", $l);
        $authcode = $temp[1];

    return $authcode;
I get the following response back from CURL

Code: Select all

$ php includes/rest/connection.php

	        	<span id="declinetxt" class="x-button-label">Decline</span>
				<input id="declinebtn" type="submit" name="action" value="Decline">

how do I without user intervention get an auth code? My code is unable to click "Agree" on the intermediary TOS page.

When i go to the Login page in a browser and try to accept the TOS, a javascript error occurs which causes me to be unable to continue forward.

I am having this exact issue. Did you ever come up with a solution?

In our case, it turned out that this obscure page was being shown to us due to the wrong password being specified.
