30 Days of postman : Day 14 Oauth Couldn't complete authentication with Github

Browser says authentication complete but Postman is waiting for callback to be received.


Says to look at the console logs. Thats all I see.

Tried through browser and through postman App.
Postman app just says.

Nvm.
I wasn’t using the callback URL provided earlier in the instructions.
set the Call back Url to: https://oauth.pstmn.io/v1/browser-callback
and it proceeded.
Wasn’t clear to me that needed to be used again.

Hi, I am also facing similar issue with Day 14 of 30 days of Postman. Though I am using the callback url.

I have couple of questions:

  • While Creating an OAuth App on GitHub, what value should I use for “Homepage URL”. Do I use localhost?
  • The browser says authentication complete but Postman is waiting for callback to be received. It eventually just times out. I am unsure of how to proceed. Here is the steps I am doing.



Appreciate any help on this.

Hi @redpenguin15 Probably not local host unless you are running a server at that address. You can use any URL, I used my linkedIn profile url just for test. Can try using anything accessible.
Give that a try and see how that goes for you.

Thank you! I was able to run it successfully.
