Weird behavior while testing OAuth

Hey! 

Im trying to setup OAuthV2 for Zapier Authentication. But have not been able to test it within the console, when I click “Sign in to <your_integration_name>” a popup window opens and the resulting URL looks something like https://zapier.comhttps//localhost:3000/api/oauth/authorize?client_id=qJWKiVUN4zx8Ws1x3XzKTBmRownUD-FK&state=1596745737.868160554912&redirect_uri=https%3A%2F%2Fzapier.com%2Fdashboard%2Fauth%2Foauth%2Freturn%2FApp114171CLIAPI%2F&response_type=code
and the browser obviously complains

Any suggestion here? I already tried using a different domain like “mydomain.com” but the problems seems to rely on how the Console handles the popup thing

+1 This problem is plaguing me too. I can’t get past first base in creating my app. I am using Auth0 as the OAuth2 provider so my authentication URL is different to the OP’s but I see the exact same problem: the URL is prepended with https://zapier.com resulting in an invalid URL so fails on DNS.

seems that this​​​​​​ is fixed now 

However you can do the flow manually, just remove the zapier.comhttps// part from the URL and start the flow from there, once you have a successful response just refresh the Platform UI(web console) page and on the testing bit you will see you are authenticated and just click on “Test Authentication” to validate that your /me endpoint works fine

Thank you, @ditorojuanf ! It is working for me now too.

I am having the same problem, can someone help me?

@renanoliveira I’m no longer seeing the same problem described in this post. However, testing the connection in the authentication configuration doesn’t work for me: I can see the OAuth workflow occurring but when calling my API endpoint, the JWT is missing or malformed. However, if I go to My Apps in Zapier and create a new connection then test it from there it works OK. Maybe you could try this.
