OAuth flow with invited multi-user account access (MUAA)

If a user has been invited to access the seller hub through multi-user account access (MUAA https://pages.ebay.com/seller-center/run-your-store/multi-user-account-access.html), is it possible for the invited user to authenticate through OAuth and grant that access to the developers as well to make the relevant call?

Or it is required for the main account to perform the authentication through OAuth in order to grant the developers access to the seller hub information?

aren´t these copy&paste answers from ebay lovely ? ;-)) because I don´t know any API that offers options like "speak in the name of ...." - I am pretty sure you have to use the token of the main account you are dealing with... if I am wrong, please let me know....

That's correct. I believe you have to use the main account.

Hi @jach_7859,


Getting the 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.
Ref: https://developer.ebay.com/api-docs/static/oauth-consent-request.html


- 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.
Ref: https://developer.ebay.com/api-docs/static/oauth-auth-code-grant-request.html


- 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.
Ref: https://developer.ebay.com/api-docs/static/oauth-refresh-token-request.html


Best regards,
eBay Developer Support

Hi eBay Developer Support,

I can successfully obtain the access token for the invited account. My question is can I use the invited account token to access the main account's seller hub information.

Thank you.

Kind regards,
