My Company has an Ad-word Account. I want to generate a refresh token to
access the API. To generate refresh token I did the following:
I created a developer account and did the following in my account
Get a client ID and client secret
1. Open the Google API Console Credentials page.
2. From the project drop-down, select an existing project or create a
new one. On the Credentials page, select Create credentials, then select
OAuth client ID.
3. Under Application type, choose Web application.
4. Under Authorized redirect URIs, add a line with:
https://developers.google.com/oauthplayground Click Create.
5. On the page that appears, take note of the client ID and client
secret. You'll need these in the next step.
In the OAuth playground, I used the above clientId and clentSecret and
clicked authorize and it was asking for a login.
I sent the link to my manager to login to the company ad-word account
and authorize it and send me the returned URL which is the playground URL
for generating refresh token.
After receiving the URL, I cliked on generate refresh token and it
responded with *"error": "unauthorized_client"*
Is there something wrong with the above steps?
My developer account should be linked or added to my company account before
I can do above steps?
Do I need any developer token?
Kind help appreciated.
