Authentication


Vend uses OAuth 2.0 for authentication. The following are the steps needed to give this connector authorization to access data from Vend stores:

Vend Setup

NOTE: Your developer account credentials are independent of your Vend account so your existing Vend credentials will not work here.

  • Once logged in go to My Applications page.
  • Create a new application by clicking the ‘Add New Application’ button and provide the requested information.
    • Redirect URI will be https://{ServiceDomain}/connector/callback.
    • Your Service Domain can be found in Settings > Integration Settings > Service Domain in your Cyclr console.

NOTE: Newly created apps are marked as Not Approved. This shouldn’t be a problem, you can still use this app. Not Approved just means that you can only connect your application to 30 Vend stores. You only need to get Vend’s approval for production ready, public applications.

  • You will now have an application with a Client ID and Client Secret.

Cyclr Setup

  • The connector can now be installed. Enter your Client ID, Client Secret and Store Name into the Cyclr interface, click ‘Next’ and then ‘Sign In’ on the next page.
