How to request for zoho authorization from an asp net core react js

Introduction

ASP.NET is a popular programming language used for building web applications. In this article, we will discuss how to request for Zoho authorization from an ASP.NET Core React JS application.

Step 1: Set up Zoho Developer Account

we can request for Zoho authorization, we need to set up a Zoho Developer Account. Follow these steps:

  1. Go to the Zoho Developer Console .
  2. Create a new account or log in to your account.
  3. Create a new application by providing the necessary details.
  4. Make note of the Client ID and Client Secret, as we will need them later.

Step 2: Create ASP.NET Core React JS Application

Next, we need to create an ASP.NET Core React JS application. Follow these steps:

  1. Create a new ASP.NET Core React JS project using your preferred development environment.
  2. Set up the necessary dependencies and configurations for the project.
  3. Ensure that the project is running correctly before proceeding.

Step 3: Install Zoho OAuth Package

In order to request for Zoho authorization, we need to install the Zoho OAuth package. Open the terminal or command prompt and to the project directory. Run the following command:

dotnet add package ZohoOAuth

Step 4: Implement Zoho Authorization

Now, let's implement the Zoho authorization in our ASP.NET Core React JS application. Open the relevant file where you want to handle the authorization process.

First, import the necessary namespaces:

using ZohoOAuth; // for Zoho OAuth functionalities
using ZohoOAuth.Contracts; // for Zoho OAuth contracts

Next, create a method to handle the authorization request:

public  RequestZohoAuthorization()
{
    // Create a new instance of ZohoOAuthClient
    ZohoOAuthClient client = new ZohoOAuthClient();

    // Set the Client ID and Client Secret obtained from Zoho Developer Console
    client.ClientId = "YOUR_CLIENT_ID";
    client.ClientSecret = "YOUR_CLIENT_SECRET";

    // Set the required scopes for the authorization request
    client.Scopes.Add(ZohoOAuthScope.ZohoCRM.Modules.ALL);

    // Generate the authorization URL
    string authorizationUrl = client.GetAuthorizationUrl();

    // Redirect the user to the authorization URL
    return Redirect(authorizationUrl);
}

Make sure to replace “YOUR_CLIENT_ID” and “YOUR_CLIENT_SECRET” with the actual values obtained from the Zoho Developer Console.

Step 5: Handle Authorization

After the user authorizes the application, Zoho will redirect the user back to a callback URL. We need to handle this callback in our ASP.NET Core React JS application.

Create a new method to handle the callback:

public IActionResult ZohoAuthorizationCallback()
{
    // Get the authorization code from the query string
    string authorizationCode = Request.Query["code"];

    // Create a new instance of ZohoOAuthClient
    ZohoOAuthClient client = new ZohoOAuthClient();

    // Set the Client ID and Client Secret obtained from Zoho Developer Console
    client.ClientId = "YOUR_CLIENT_ID";
    client.ClientSecret = "YOUR_CLIENT_SECRET";

    // Exchange the authorization code for an  token
    ZohoOAuthTokens tokens = client.GenerateAccessToken(authorizationCode);

    //  the access token and other relevant information for future use

    // Redirect the user to the desired page
    return Redirect("/home");
}

Again, replace “YOUR_CLIENT_ID” and “YOUR_CLIENT_SECRET” with the actual values obtained from the Zoho Developer Console.

Conclusion

In this article, we have discussed how to request for Zoho authorization from an ASP.NET Core React JS application. By following the steps outlined above, you should be able to integrate Zoho authorization into your application successfully.
