How to get Access Token?


Using Postman was the easiest way I found to do this, so download and install that first.

Authorizing

    1. Open a browser window and log into your Dribbble account.
    2. In a new window, go to the following url:
      https://dribbble.com/oauth/authorize?client_id=CLIENT_ID
      (Replace CLIENT_ID with the long Client ID number provided when you registered your application)
    3. A Authorization Screen will appear with the name of the application you registered, choose to Authorize your application
      After authorizing, you will be redirected to a URL that looks similar to this:
      http://callback_url?code=YOUR_CODE

Get the Token

  1. Using Postman, create a new Request
  2. Select POST, and enter the following URL:
    https://dribbble.com/oauth/token?client_id=CLIENT_ID&client_secret=CLIENT_SECRET&code=COPIED_CODE
  3. Replace the CLIENT_ID and CLIENT_SECRET with the ID and Secret provided by Dribbble after successfully registering your app
  4. Replace the COPIED_CODE with the code you just copied from the callback URL page
  5. Hit Send, and your Access Token will be returned, mine looked like this:
