One of my projects with IBM Connections Cloud has produced a document which I hope helps you understand IBM Connections Cloud and OAuth – Understanding OAuth 2.0. I was the primary author collaborating with Elizabeth Bowling and Miguel Estrada to build the document. Good Luck!
As one of my projects, I built a sample with IBM Liberty which demonstrates integrations with the IBM Connections Cloud Social APIs and IBM Bluemix using OAuth 2.0. You can read about the project on GitHub. The sample application is driven by simple servlets which control atomic and intentionally unsophisticated demonstration level code. The code […]

I thought this brief demonstration code would help Ruby developers build a compelling integration. Note, I have already gone through the OAuth Dance and generated an OAuth Bearer Token. I have […]
