  • Step 1

    To get your OAuth access token you will need the values highlighted in the image below from the service key you created in the previous tutorial: Use the Free Tier Service Plan to Set Up Account for Personalized Recommendation and Get Service Key.

    PR Token

    Choose the correct service key values you use to get OAuth access token for Personalized Recommendation via any web browser.

  • Step 2
    1. Add /oauth/token?grant_type=client_credentials to the url value (from inside the uaa section of the service key), paste it in any web browser and choose Enter.

    2. Enter the clientid value from your service key as Username.

    3. Enter the clientsecret value from your service key as Password.

    4. Click Sign in or OK (depending on the web browser you work with).

    PR Token

    You should receive a response like the following:

    JSON
    Copy
    {
        "access_token": "<< your access token >>",
        "token_type": "bearer",
        "expires_in": 43199,
        "scope": "<< granted access >>",
        "jti": "<< unique identifier >>"
    }
    

    Once the token has been generated, make sure to copy and save it locally for easy access. The token is valid for 12 hours (43199 seconds). After that, you’ll need to generate a new one.

    You have successfully generated your OAuth access token for the Personalized Recommendation service and you are now all set to: Get recommendations based on users’ browsing history and/or item description.
