OAuth 2.0 Token only authentication?

I am attempting to add my own API for the program of paylocity. 

 

The documentation can be found here: https://docs.paylocity.com/weblink/guides/Paylocity_Web_Services_API/Paylocity_Web_Services_API.htm#section/Authorization

 

Where I am lost is that Zapier platform is requiring an authentication url. However, the url on the documentation for the Paylocity API it states that it uses the grant type of “client_credentials”.

 

I am able to successfully request a access token on Postman but when I enter all the same information on the Zapier platform, the required fields are throwing me off. Postman did not require an authentication url and the API documentation does not give me one.

 

Any advice?

 

Thanks

Hi @TApplegate - I haven’t tested this but maybe you could get it working using Session auth instead of OAuth2 since it doesn’t require end user interaction.

Hi @TApplegate! Were you able to make this work using @ikbelkirasan solution? It’d be great to know if it did!
