Using OAuth 2.0 with dotmailer (a non-developer's guide)

This is a non-developer's guide as to what is achievable using OAuth. For a technical guide for integrating to dotmailer with OAuth, see our developer's guide.

dotmailer uses OAuth 2.0 to provide 'single sign-on'. Single sign-on provides the means for a dotmailer user to log into their account without the need for them to constantly re-enter their credentials. When they wish to use their dotmailer account, they just click through from their CRM, extranet or other platform.

This process requires a way of authenticating your users that is accessible over the internet, and an amount of development work (detailed in our developer's guide).

To protect all our customers' email sending reputations, this is not available by default. Customers wishing to enable this functionality must contact their account manager and will be asked to go through an approvals process.

Note for Corporate and Reseller accounts

Registering your main dotmailer account for OAuth access will by default enable all your child accounts for OAuth authentication. Any new accounts just need to complete the initial authorisation phase before obtaining an access and refresh token. 

You will need to have an SSL certificate for your application domain. If you do not have one already, please speak to your account manager about buying one.
