I have one website working fine with the V3 API.  I am now setting up another and getting the 400 Invalid redirect_uri error.

 

On authorize I redirect to this URI: https://api.cc.email/v3/idfed?client_id={my_client_id}&response_type=code&redirect_uri=https://www.s... 

 

This redirect returns 302 and comes back with a response header of Location: https://idfed.constantcontact.com/as//authorization.oauth2?pfidpadapterid=ctctOAuth2IdpAdapter&clien...

 

Notice it has a trailing &.  Also notice that the + signs separating the scopes are not URL encoded.  When I passed just the plus signs in the original redirect URL,  the redirected URL returned did not have plus signs but spaces.  Then I encoded them and the redirect URL comes back with plus signs.

 

The browser redirects again and the above URL returns the 400 error.

 

Any ideas of why this is failing?

 

Thanks,

Bruce

Hello Bruce,

 

Thank you for reaching out to Constant Contact API Developer Support. My team is here to assist outside software developers with questions about building into Constant Contact's API.

 

Based on the information provided and the logs I was able to find, I believe the issue is most likely being caused by the Redirect URI in the Authorization Request URL not matching the Redirect URI specified within your new V3 application key.

Yes, that was it.  Someone else set it up and sent me a screen shot, which looked good.  But apparently something was off.
