(C# UWP/WinRT) Quickbooks OAuth2 in a Desktop App

Demonstrates how to get a QuickBooks OAuth2 access token from a desktop application or script.

Chilkat Universal Windows Platform (UWP) / WinRT Downloads

Chilkat for the Universal Windows Platform (UWP)

//  It requires the Chilkat API to have been previously unlocked.
//  See Global Unlock Sample for sample code.

Chilkat.OAuth2 oauth2 = new Chilkat.OAuth2();
bool success;

//  QuickBooks OAuth2 allows for an "http://localhost:<portNumber>/" callback URL for sandbox testing,
//  but not for production.
//  For a desktop app, you must provide a script on your web server to redirect to "http://localhost/<portNumber>"
//  It can be written in C#, PHP, or whatever desired.  It must include the query string in the redirection.
//  For example, in PHP your script would look like this:

//  <?php
//    header( 'Location: http://localhost:3017?' . $_SERVER['QUERY_STRING'] );
//  ?>

oauth2.AppCallbackUrl = "https://yourwebserver.com/OAuth2.php";
oauth2.ListenPort = 3017;

oauth2.AuthorizationEndpoint = "https://appcenter.intuit.com/connect/oauth2";
oauth2.TokenEndpoint = "https://oauth.platform.intuit.com/oauth2/v1/tokens/bearer";

//  Replace these with actual values.
oauth2.ClientId = "QUICKBOOKS-CLIENT-ID";
oauth2.ClientSecret = "QUICKBOOKS-CLIENT-SECRET";
oauth2.UseBasicAuth = true;
oauth2.CodeChallenge = false;

//  Indicate the desired access.  Possible scopes that can appear in the list are:
//  com.intuit.quickbooks.accounting:  QuickBooks Online API
//  com.intuit.quickbooks.payment:  QuickBooks Payments API
//  openid:  OpenID Connect processing
//  profile:  user's given and family names
//  email:  user's email address
//  phone:  user's phone number
//  address:  user's physical address
oauth2.Scope = "com.intuit.quickbooks.accounting";

//  Begin the OAuth2 three-legged flow.  This returns a URL that should be loaded in a browser.
string url = oauth2.StartAuth();
if (oauth2.LastMethodSuccess != true) {
    Debug.WriteLine(oauth2.LastErrorText);
    return;
}

Debug.WriteLine("url = " + url);

//  At this point, your application should load the URL in a browser.
//  For example,
//  in C#: System.Diagnostics.Process.Start(url);
//  in Java: Desktop.getDesktop().browse(new URI(url));
//  in VBScript: Set wsh=WScript.CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
//               wsh.Run url
//  The QuickBooks account owner would interactively accept or deny the authorization request.

//  Add the code to load the url in a web browser here...
//  Add the code to load the url in a web browser here...
//  Add the code to load the url in a web browser here...

//  Now wait for the authorization.
//  We'll wait for a max of 60 seconds.
int numMsWaited = 0;
while ((numMsWaited < 60000) && (oauth2.AuthFlowState < 3)) {
    oauth2.SleepMs(100);
    numMsWaited = numMsWaited + 100;
}

//  If there was no response from the browser within 60 seconds, then
//  the AuthFlowState will be equal to 1 or 2.
//  1: Waiting for Redirect. The OAuth2 background thread is waiting to receive the redirect HTTP request from the browser.
//  2: Waiting for Final Response. The OAuth2 background thread is waiting for the final access token response.
//  In that case, cancel the background task started in the call to StartAuth.
if (oauth2.AuthFlowState < 3) {
    oauth2.Cancel();
    Debug.WriteLine("No response from the browser!");
    return;
}

//  Check the AuthFlowState to see if authorization was granted, denied, or if some error occurred
//  The possible AuthFlowState values are:
//  3: Completed with Success. The OAuth2 flow has completed, the background thread exited, and the successful JSON response is available in AccessTokenResponse property.
//  4: Completed with Access Denied. The OAuth2 flow has completed, the background thread exited, and the error JSON is available in AccessTokenResponse property.
//  5: Failed Prior to Completion. The OAuth2 flow failed to complete, the background thread exited, and the error information is available in the FailureInfo property.
if (oauth2.AuthFlowState == 5) {
    Debug.WriteLine("OAuth2 failed to complete.");
    Debug.WriteLine(oauth2.FailureInfo);
    return;
}

if (oauth2.AuthFlowState == 4) {
    Debug.WriteLine("OAuth2 authorization was denied.");
    Debug.WriteLine(oauth2.AccessTokenResponse);
    return;
}

if (oauth2.AuthFlowState != 3) {
    Debug.WriteLine("Unexpected AuthFlowState:" + Convert.ToString(oauth2.AuthFlowState));
    return;
}

//  Save the full JSON access token response to a file.
Chilkat.StringBuilder sbJson = new Chilkat.StringBuilder();
sbJson.Append(oauth2.AccessTokenResponse);
sbJson.WriteFile("qa_data/tokens/qb-access-token.json","utf-8",false);

//  The full JSON received looks like this:
//  {
//    "expires_in": 3600,
//    "x_refresh_token_expires_in": 8726400,
//    "refresh_token": "L011546037639r ... 3vR2DrbOmg0Sdagw",
//    "access_token": "eyJlbmMiOiJBMTI4Q0 ... oETJEMbeggg",
//    "token_type": "bearer"
//  }

Debug.WriteLine("OAuth2 authorization granted!");
Debug.WriteLine("Access Token = " + oauth2.AccessToken);
