OAuth Migration Overview

  • Updated

Open authentication or OAuth is an increasingly common, secure method of data sharing where an end user gives permission to one application or website to access their data that is stored on another application or website. OAuth is a token-based solution, meaning credentials are handled entirely by the OAuth provider (usually a financial institution in this case) and exchanged for a token that MX can use.

Migrating your connection with MX to OAuth provides a faster, more secure connection for both you and your customers, however, it does require some lift upfront. Your developers will need to implement the necessary code changes, if applicable to your integration. After that, your OAuth connection will go live at which point end users will need to re-authenticate their accounts with MX.
