Working with the AccountRight/ new Essentials API

  Date Updated: Sep 2021


There are two distinct ways in which you can consume the AccountRight/ new Essentials API and SDK.

Firstly there is the local desktop service which must be installed and running as part of AccountRight and secondly the online cloud services which use standard OAuth 2.0 authentication. More information on where to work (desktop versus cloud) can be found here in our getting started guide.

For examples on Authentication, check out our GitHub repo of the SDK here

For some additional reading on what OAuth is please refer to here

If you are unsure of what a redirect uri is, our support team has put together a little video tutorial unpacking this here
