(DataFlex) Xero 2 Legged OAuth for Private Application

This example demonstrates the REST object for 2-legged OAuth for a private application.

Note: This example requires Chilkat v9.5.0.64 or later.

An application can setup OAuth1 for a given instance of the Chilkat REST object, and then use the instance for many REST API calls. This example demonstrates the OAuth1 setup and initial connection. This code would typically be placed in a subroutine/function to "initalize" the REST object before beginning to use it for REST HTTP requests.

Note: Xero private applications use 2 legged OAuth and bypass the user authorization workflow in the standard OAuth process. Private applications are linked to a single Xero organisation which is chosen when you register your application. In summary: 2-legged OAuth1 is for applications that access the data that they themselves own.
