URL for the authenticated user's profile

Mon, 20 Mar 2017 - 14:09 UTC
I've been writing a module for authentication via ORCID using OAuth2 [1] and it seems that - unusually - there isn't a URL that can be used to fetch the currently authenticated user's profile, using just the access token. Examples from other OAuth2 services: * https://graph.facebook.com/v2.5/me

API 2.0: authorization for /activities/update always fails

Wed, 15 Feb 2017 - 14:12 UTC
All I was able to authorize is the "/authenticate" scope. Whenever I try to request authorization for "/activities/update" on sandbox via the 2.0 API, it reports "Invalid scope". I tried both from Google OAuth playground and via curl with the same result. My client ID is APP-U5LLQCW33OX4QL72.
