To send authenticated requests to the Sage Accounting API, you need to register your app. You will receive a client_id and client_secret in return, which you will use to obtain access tokens during authentication.

After signing up for a developer account, there is no app in your apps list:

Click on the Create App button to enter the details of your app.

After clicking on Save, your app is created. Click on its name to see the details for the newly created app.

App Details

To edit name, homepage or callback URLs, click on the small pencil. To see your Client ID and your Client Secret, click on Show right in those fields. You can also copy the values to your clipboard by clicking on the clipboard icon next to the field. You will need both values for the OAuth2 Authentication.

Uploading an App Image

You can upload an symbol image that will be displayed to Sage Accounting users during authorization. We recommend an image size of 250 x 250 pixels. To upload the image, just drop the file onto the existing image or click on the Change Image button.
