EzyOauth2 has now been superseded by Goa, so this document is for legacy information. For more information see OAuth2 for Apps Script in a few lines of code. If you are using EzyOauth2, it’s easy to migrate. If you are starting up, consider using Goa instead – it’s easier and has more features.

In EzyOauth2 – taking some pain out of Apps Script API authentication, I provided a library to simplify oAuth2, then in EzyOauth2 patterns I showed simple patterns for creating apps.

Now you will probably want to have multiple authentication packages for different packages and scopes. Unfortunately, everybody’s oAuth2 implementation is a little different, but we can still use  a standard pattern to abstract away those differences.
To illustrate, I’m going to add a new oAuth2 package – this time for the soundcloud service.
For other authentication packages, see

only a few minor modifications are needed from the soundcloud version shown below.

Getting started

Just as described in EzyOauth2 – taking some pain out of Apps Script API authentication, you need to set up your application – this time in the soundcloud developers console. This is a lot simpler than some other consoles, but the principle in the same. You’ll get a client id and a secret, and you’ll need to give your redirect URI just as for the Google oAuth2 implementation.

Package Names

To support multiple packages, you can now provide a package name when you set up your credentials for the first time. Here are a few different ones, including the sound cloud one. You need to run this once to store your credentials.

Service names

Note that each package has a service property. cEzyOauth2 knows how to interact with different services (as I mentioned, they are all slightly different). I’ll be adding to these over time. Here are some service definitions, which I maintain  in the cEzyOauth2 library.

a web application.

The only difference between this and the example shown in EzyOauth2 patterns, is that I am calling different function names and package name


Once your credentials are set up, all you have to do is pass the function that does the work to doGetPattern(e, constructConsentSoundcloud, doSomethingSoundcloud, ”soundcloud”)   and it will be called with a fresh accessCode. Simple!
