Login Authorization

I am looking to use an api within my extension. The api requires oauth and means I need the viewer to log in to their account to use the extension. I wanted to make sure that it is acceptable to have a viewer login to use an extension.
Does anyone know?

You can have users go through the OAuth process, but keep in mind that only panel extensions can open links, so if your extension is a Video Overlay, or a Video Component you’ll have no way to send viewers to the auth link, you would need them to copy/paste the string in a new tab which isn’t a good user experience.

Unless you specifically need scopes from the viewer, you should use a backend server and an App Access Token to make API requests.

Great to hear! It is a panel extension, so it should work great. Thanks!
