OAuth Keys Self-check: How do I know what I’m using in my code?
We suggest that you check your application code now to verify which keys you’re currently using.

  • Your OAuth 1.0 keys tab will show 3 values: App Token, OAuth Consumer Key, and OAuth Consumer Secret.
  • Your OAuth 2.0 keys tab will show 2 values: Client ID and Client Secret.

Step 2: Review your Migration Options

How much of the OAuth 2.0 and Migration docs do you actually need to read?
Guess what? You might only need to read part of the OAuth Migration guide. It all depends on how you want to handle your Connect to QuickBooks and/or Sign in with Intuit process during your migration.
Take 1 minute to read “When and how will migration to OAuth 2.0 affect my existing connections?” in our Migration FAQ to learn about your options.
