Why not ask your question on the new OpenStreetMap Community Forum?


Hi, I'm interested in creating an Oauth 1.0 client for Openstreetmaps. I wanted to make my own client without using libraries. In OSM I saw that callback url is optional and have to set when registering application. But according to normal protocol we have to insert callback as a parameter. In this case I'm confused about what should be included in parameter list that send to Request Token URL ?

Can someone answer this question please? because it is very essential for my project.

common way of requesting is :

oauthRequest('requestTokenURL', 'POST', $parameters)

This $parameters variable only consists of 'callback' url.

I want to know what should I provide at there instead of 'callback' url?

Will it cause any problem if I send it as an empty variable?

Thank you!

Hi, Problem solved! Must mentioned callback url in OSM web site. No use of sending it in requests.
