I am dragging my hair out over this one right now. I have followed the following example:

but here the user is being sent to the login form and needs to login. Instead I would like to post that data in my code and not have the user login but my app do that automatically.

If anyone could post an example on how to do that with oAuth I would really appreciate it as I am not eager on using that bloated SOAP implementation.

Cheers guys!

Here is a code which might help you solve this problem.

$loginurl = "";

$params = "grant_type=password"

. "&client_id=" . CLIENT_ID

. "&client_secret=" . CLIENT_SECRET

. "&username=" . USER_NAME

. "&password=" . PASSWORD;

$curl = curl_init($loginurl);

curl_setopt($curl, CURLOPT_HEADER, false);

curl_setopt($curl, CURLOPT_RETURNTRANSFER, true);

curl_setopt($curl, CURLOPT_POST, true);

curl_setopt($curl, CURLOPT_POSTFIELDS, $params);

$json_response = curl_exec($curl);

$status = curl_getinfo($curl, CURLINFO_HTTP_CODE);

if ( $status != 200 ) {

    die("Error: call to URL failed with status $status, response $json_response, curl_error " . curl_error($curl) . ", curl_errno " . curl_errno($curl));



echo $json_response;

Now, you can store the instance_url and access_token from that response into a session var and work away on our objects.

I hope the above helps you solve this issue.
