OAuth is a protocol for securely granting to third-party tools a limited capability to use your wiki user account.

There are separate pages about different aspects of OAuth in MediaWiki:

  • Extension:OAuth - extension which implements an OAuth server in MediaWiki
  • Extension:OAuthAuthentication - extension which uses a remote wiki (with the OAuth extension installed) for authentication of local accounts
  • Help:OAuth - user documentation for OAuth on Wikimedia sites
  • OAuth/For Developers - developer documentation for creating tools that can interface with a wiki running the OAuth extension
