Prerequisites

iCloud Hosted Authentication Steps

  1. Have your user generate an app-specific password. They’ll need it to continue on.
  2. Redirect the user to the Nylas hosted login page by making a GET request to /oauth/authorize.
  3. Once they are directed to the Nylas hosted login page, instead of using the iCloud password, they use the app-specific password.
  4. Complete the authentication flow by getting access tokens based on the response_type.
