QB API with my mobile application.

I want to integrate QB API with my mobile application. While I am doing I got struck in authentication
$OAuth2LoginHelper = $dataService->getOAuth2LoginHelper();
I did till the above code. After that I am not able to do any thing. I want to get "AuthorizationCodeURL".

I have only APIs so I cant run header("Location: ".$authorizationUrl); to connect to QB.

I am struck for several days. Please help me to get access token to get authorized.

QB API with my mobile application.

It's great to see you here today, nithin@pixelscri. I'm here to ensure you'll get the right support in completing your task to integrate QuickBooks API with your mobile application. 


We have a separate and dedicated forum that handles API concerns for QuickBooks Online (QBO). This is where developers and business people like you engage with others to discuss programming and mobile app connection concerns. I'd recommend getting an account set up and posting your question from there. This way, our developers can provide you with the access token to get authorized and guide you to complete your task. Here's how:


  1. Go to the Intuit Developer page.
  2. Choose QuickBooks Online under What do you need help with?.
  3. Click Ask a Question.
  4. Log into your existing Intuit Developer Account or create a new one.
  5. Enter the details of your concern.
  6. Select Ask.


Also, you can always utilize the helpful API topics by going to the API Docs & Tools menu. Then, select QuickBooks Online and choose API Explorer.


You can count me in if you have other concerns about connecting third-party apps and questions about managing transactions in QBO. I'll gladly help. Take care, and I wish you continued success, nithin@pixelscri.

We are always aiming to make our customers feel valued, nithin@pixelscri.


I appreciate the time and effort you've spent in posting your concern on Intuit Developer page.


I can see your urgency to have an answer to your issue. However, there may be a large volume of posts to the developer's department that delays their response. 


In the meantime, let's wait for their reply so you'll get an answer in integrating QB API with your mobile application. They can also further assist you to obtain an access token to acquire authorization.


Meanwhile, I'll be adding this great Community resource in case you've got other QuickBooks concerns such as setting up payments, managing your income and expenses, running reports, etc. Please refer to this article for more details: Community help articles.


Keep me posted if you have other questions about managing your QuickBooks account. I'll be happy to help. Stay safe!
