# Auth

Auth section is where you do authentication configuration. Usually, most API services require authentication to prevent unauthorized requests.

Mini-App V2 system support 2 types of authentications, Api Key and OAuth v2.

# Api Key


Choose Api Key in the Auth Type and click on Edit, then Add Items to add auth inputs.

# OAuth V2

Choose OAuth v2 in the Auth Type and configure the 3 steps shown below it.


See how to set up OAuth v2 in a Google Calender app demo (opens new window).

# Auth Request

If you need to send the auth inputs to get more information, use Auth Request.

For example, some third-party service providers require users to provide their username and password. And with these 2 values, they generate a token for later communication in a few hours.

In this case, you can gather username and password in auth inputs and send the token request in Auth Request.



Configure the external request and click on Test, you will see the data you need in the response area. Select the token and map it back to the app by clicking the Add button. Click Save to save your auth request:
