How to use RC API in C# that is created as Web Based App

Hi,

I have an App created with API App as "Web browser (Javascript)". I want to consume RC API and get data using c#. However I am getting error as "Unauthorized for this grant type" when I call RC API from C# code with App Credentials of "Web Browser" App. Is there any way I could call an API from C# using the credentials of "Web Browser" app?

Thanks in advance,

Amos

A RingCentral "Web Browser" app type requires OAuth authorization flow authentication. This means that you cannot use the password flow authentication (that was why you got the error above).

Follow the instruction on this Dev Guide to implement OAuth for your "Web Browser" based app.
