Re: Authorization Request - Internal Error

Hi @ChrisC37,


From what I can see things look good so far. I'm happy to check in to this further, but in order to do that I would need some information that is best kept private. I would suggest to email us at webservices(at) and provide your API Key, Client Secret, and Redirect URI, so I can try to replicate.
