Client creation and management for the API Portal
The WikimediaApiPortalOAuth extension is designed to connect the API Portal with the OAuth server on Meta-Wiki by providing a user interface for creating and managing OAuth 2.0 clients. This extension requires the ability to connect to a wiki acting as an OAuth controller and running OAuth 1.36 or later.
The extension can be retrieved directly from Git [?]:
- Some extensions have tags for stable releases.
- Select the tag
- Click "snapshot"
- Each branch is associated with a past MediaWiki release. There is also a "master" branch containing the latest alpha version (might require an alpha version of MediaWiki).
- Browse branches
- Select a branch name
- Click "Continue"
Extract the snapshot and place it in the extensions/WikimediaApiPortalOAuth/ directory of your MediaWiki installation.

On the wiki where WikimediaApiPortalOAuth is installed, set
$wgWikimediaApiPortalOAuthMetaRestURL to the URL for rest.php on the OAuth controller wiki. For example, in the case of the beta Wikimedia API Portal, the OAuth controller wiki is the beta instance of Meta-Wiki (
https://meta.wikimedia.beta.wmflabs.org/w/rest.php). To allow WikimediaApiPortalOAuth to make requests to the OAuth server, set
$wgRestAllowCrossOriginCookieAuth to true on the OAuth controller wiki.
||String||URL for rest.php on the OAuth controller wiki|
The Special:AppManagement page provides a simplified set of options for creating and managing OAuth 2.0 clients. The extension supports creating two types of OAuth 2.0 clients:
- owner-only clients
- clients with authorization code, client credentials, and refresh token grant types
