I want to access the Jive REST API from my desktop, or another computer that is not able to receive an authorization code from Jive (using grant_type=authorization_code)
I also see that I can use grant_type=password to obtain an Access token:
However, this requires sending the username and password of a Jive user with the request for the token? If I have to send the username and password what's the point of using OAuth and creating an add-in to get a clientId and secret? I can make a request directly to the REST API with a username and passwords and basic http authorization?
grant_type=client_credentials supported by the Jive REST API?
