I only want to pull my orders from a background process. . . I will not have any users logging in.
Did you ever find a solution for this? I have the same use case and finding ebay's design of this api to be very poor. The "user" for me is the app itself and will not have a user behind it clicking through some UI.
Getting a user access token is a 3 step process.
Please see all of the steps below:
- You need to construct an HTML request that will redirect the user to your application's Grant Application Access page for a getting user consent.
- After successfully getting a user consent, you will get an authorization code returned by the consent request URL. You can use this authorization code for getting a User access token.
- An user access token is valid for two hours from the time it was generated. For continued access after the token expires, you must mint a new token using the associated refresh token.
You cannot generate a user access token without getting the user consent.
