How do I verify my application for production?
In order to verify your application we need the Application Client ID and the possible
redirect_uri values you will be using with the request authorization flow.
Why aren’t my events appearing when I read a user’s events?
By default we don’t return events your application has created when you query the Read Events endpoint.Read More
Why do I keep getting errors.unknown_or_used when requesting an access_token?
code that is generated when a user goes through the authorization process is restricted in a number of ways. This error means one of two things:
Why do I get invalid_grant when requesting access token?
This signifies that the
code is unrecognized or has already been used, or that the
redirect_uri does not match the one given when requesting the user’s authorization.
Why do I get the same account_id and refresh_token for different users?
By default when a user authorizes multiple calendar service accounts with your application the Cronofy API links those service accounts under one Cronofy account. This makes sense in production but can create some, on the face of it, odd behaviour in development.Read More
Why do get duplicate events?
If you’re getting duplicated events when you edit existing events, it may be because of how you’re using
Why do I get a CORS error : “No ‘Access-Control-Allow-Origin’ header is present on the requested resource”?
If you try to pass an
access_token (either personal or generated from an authorization exchange) from a browser XMLHttp request for example you will receive an error:
No 'Access-Control-Allow-Origin' header is present on the requested resource
The 'Access-Control-Allow-Origin' header has a value that is not equal to the supplied origin
Why do access_tokens expire and how can you refresh them?
Our API expires the
access_token in order to reduce the risk of your users’ calendar data being compromised. When you obtain authorization to access a user’s calendar, a
refresh_token will be issued alongside the
access_token to allow your application to obtain a new
access_token without user involvement.
Why doesn't Cronofy issue event ids?
We don’t issue IDs to events, instead we require that developers provide an
event_idwhen upserting an event to a user’s calendar. This is then used to identify the event when making subsquent updates/deletes.
What is the difference between event_id and event_uid
event_id is only used for events that your application creates, what we call managed events. This is an ID that your application specifies. We use it as a key for an application’s managed events.
