Out of Band Applications

Some service providers also offer a mechanism to authorize OAuth applications without using a callback. This is known as "out-of-band". Management Console also supports out-of-band authorization. The application created at your service provider must be registered as an out-of-band application; at Twitter this is done simply by leaving the callback URL field blank. Other service providers use the special value "oob" to signify an out-of-band application.

When you register the application in Management Console, leave the callback URL field blank here, too. When adding users to the application, clicking the authorization link will not redirect back to the Management Console. Instead, the service provider will present a verifier or PIN.

This pin must be copied into the Verifier field in the wizard before pressing Next.
