OAuth 2.0 - Grant Types

OAuth 2.0 is an industry-standard authorization protocol. It allows third-party applications to gain limited access to a web service on behalf of a user, without exposing the user's credentials.

In OAuth 2.0, grant types are methods that a client application can use to obtain an access token. With the introduction of Grant Types in Hoppscotch, you can now set the grant type as any of the following options:

  • Authorization Code
  • Authorization Code using PKCE
  • Client Credentials
  • Password Credentials
  • Implicit

In this release, we've reconsidered our approach to variables in Hoppscotch and are introducing variable scopes.

Variable Scopes

Hoppscotch provides different variable scopes, allowing you to use various scopes for different contexts.

  • Global Variables: These can be accessed throughout Hoppscotch and have the broadest scope of all variables.
  • Environment Variables: These allow your variables to be scoped to a specific environment. Environment variables are useful when you have the same set of variables for two environments, such as production and staging.
  • Request Variables: These are scoped to an individual request. Request variables are useful when you want to use variables in your URL path or when you want to embed a URL variable.

Secret Variables

We've also introduced secret variables in our point release last month. A secret variable allows users to specify secrets and reference the values as variables. The values of secret variables in any workspace will never be synced to the server or shared with any workspace members. Read more.
