Termination of APPID based authorization in Shopping API

I have an API call that is using Appid for authentication. This will no longer work after June 21.

I have generated a user token successfully, it looks like this (I've amended it slightly in case it is sensitive?):

https://signin.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ThirdPartyAuthSucessFailure&isAuthSuccessful=true&code=v%5xxxxxxxxi%5E1%23I%5E3%23f%5E0%23r%5E1%23pddddd%5E3%23t%5EUl41Xdddzg6QjczOTI1Nzk4Q0Q2NjcwRDE2QzNGQkY2RjU0NTA3NjBfMl8xI0VeMjYw&expires_in=299

I've been through all the articles and have no clue what I am supposed to do now in order to generate a token? And then what do you do with the token once you've got it?

Hi @75meadlane,

You need to authenticate with an OAuth application access token using the X-EBAY-API-IAF-TOKEN HTTP.

See here https://developer.ebay.com/api-docs/static/oauth-client-credentials-grant.html

For the client credentials grant flow topic for more information on generating and managing OAuth application access tokens . Also, please see "Making an API Call" section for Shopping API mentioned below, to know more about making the call.
