Thanks. It will be very helpful if someone can write step by step procedure in details. One question I have is do I need to have an origination and pay $55 per month just to test the two legged authentication. Can someone answer this. Or can we have the test parameter for “test organization.?”
Jeff here, one of the Particle engineers. A few things here:
We’re working on a new UI in the Particle Dashboard for creating OAuth clients that should be available within 2 weeks. For now, you can still hit the API directly
You don’t need to have an organization to create an OAuth client. You can create one just for your user. Check out the reference docs on creating OAuth clients. You just wouldn’t include an organization slug in the POST request. However, if you are planning on building a Particle-powered product that you’d like to manage as a fleet, I would suggest creating an organization and creating OAuth clients for that organization. There is currently a 30-day trial period with the option to cancel anytime. You can always cancel your subscription, and your organization and its clients will still continue to function
We are in the process of thinking through refactoring our pricing to allow you to create products and organizations without having to pay (up to a certain number of devices). Stay tuned for updates on that
Ahh, I think I’m understanding now. Organizations are a container for customer user accounts and products. You cannot register ‘customer’ accounts without an organization, you can certainly use your non-org oauth account to register normal new ‘user’ accounts, but they won’t be tied to you / your account at all.
You can also register an org for a month for free I believe, if you just want to test.
