Is it possible to use Jolla OAuth to authenticate to other services. Stackoverflow for instance supports OAuth but you need to know the OAuth endpoint URI. Looking at what happens when you login to the URI is something like

I can't see the client_idhash code in my OAuth2 applications on so I guess the together client is hardcoded in there?

Would it be possible to register a completely separate client application (say for the Jolla OAuth2 endpoint?

If yes, what is the endpoint URI for authentication, if no, then this is a feature request.

EDIT 06-02-2015: Any update from Jolla? Is this something that Jolla is interested in providing?

I don't recall but does Jolla together native app use same authentication? Ideally Settings » Accounts credentials should be able to integrate with apps.

@anandrkris, This is about using your Jolla OAuth account to log into third party services. Which is a separate idea to having third party account information stored in Settings > Accounts.

Read up on OAuth, it will be a great way for developers to provide secure services without having to worry about storing authentication credentials.

Oh Ok...Sure. Thanks. My thought was around using Google accounts setup in Jolla for other apps. For example, the Youtube native client should be able to use google account settings already created.
