Authenticating to Sage Business Cloud Accounting

Sage Business Cloud Accounting uses the OAuth standard to authenticate users.

OAuth requires the authenticating user to interact with Sage Business Cloud Accounting using the browser. The provider facilitates this in various ways as described below.

Note: The driver makes use of the Sage Business Cloud Accounting API (v3.1) to connect. The supported countries for this API version are:

  • Canada

  • Germany

  • Spain

  • France

  • United Kingdom

  • Ireland

  • United States


You can connect without setting any connection properties for your user credentials. Set InitiateOAuth to GETANDREFRESH to avoid repeating the OAuth exchange and manually setting the OAuthAccessToken.

  1. Extracts the access token from the callback URL and authenticates requests.

  2. Obtains a new access token when the old one expires.

  3. Saves OAuth values in OAuthSettingsLocation to be persisted across connections.

To obtain the OAuth client credentials, follow the steps below:

  1. Log into Sage accounting Developer Account.

  2. Create a new app. Set the CallbackUrl to http://localhost:3333, or some other similar http url.

  3. The OAuthClientId is the Client Id displayed. The OAuthClientSecret is the Client Secret.
