Request authorization PRERELEASE


When Business Connect is enabled for your application, you may request the ability to access other calendars through the user’s account.

This is achieved by adding an additional delegated_scope parameter to your Account Authorization request.

This will issue you a short-lived, single-use code that you will be able to exchange for an access_token and refresh_token for the user, along with enabling your application to make Delegated Authorization requests using their account.

Example request URL

The parameters are encoded in the querystring as specified in appendix B of RFC 6749. Additional linebreaks are added to the request’s path for clarity.

Request URL parameters

In addition to the standard authorization parameters, you must specify:

delegated_scope required  #

The scope of delegated privileges you want the eventual access_token to grant for other accounts. One of the following scopes must be requested:

  • free_busy
  • read_only

free_busy will allow your application to access availability information for other calendar accounts. read_only will allow your application to access the schedule of other calendar accounts.
