Authentication

YouTube (Data API) uses OAuth authentication. When you connect your YouTube (Data API) account, Pipedream will open a popup window where you can sign into YouTube (Data API) and grant Pipedream permission to connect to your account. Pipedream securely stores and automatically refreshes the OAuth tokens so you can easily authenticate any YouTube (Data API) API.

Pipedream requests the following authorization scopes when you connect your account:

emailprofilehttps://www.googleapis.com/auth/youtube.readonlyhttps://www.googleapis.com/auth/youtube.uploadhttps://www.googleapis.com/auth/youtube
OAuth Request Configurations:
  1. authorization
    GEThttps://accounts.google.com/o/oauth2/v2/auth?client_id={{oauth.client_id}}&redirect_uri={{oauth.redirect_uri}}&state={{oauth.state}}&response_type=code&scope={{oauth.space_separated_scopes}}&access_type=offline&prompt=consent
  2. accessToken
    POSThttps://oauth2.googleapis.com/tokencontent-type: application/x-www-form-urlencodedaccept: application/json
    client_id={{oauth.client_id}}&client_secret={{oauth.client_secret}}&redirect_uri={{oauth.redirect_uri}}&grant_type=authorization_code&code={{oauth.code}}
  3. refreshToken
    POSThttps://oauth2.googleapis.com/tokencontent-type: application/x-www-form-urlencodedaccept: application/json
