Client Id and Client Secret

Question asked by TatianaTen on Jun 22, 2015

Hi all,


I have a question here, it's really a confirmation that I require.


I have registered my app on AGOL and got a Client Id and Client Secret, which I'm using in my web application. I can get my content from AGOL without any problems, but when I try to share a webmap it doesn't work. I get and error "{"error":{"code":403,"messageCode":"GWM_0003","message":"You do not have permissions to access this resource or perform this operation.","details":[]}}"


From my research on this I understood that it's not possible to perform this kind of operation with ClientId and Client_secret.

From the table below, I'm not really sure whether the info in it shows the good practices or actual capabilities of authentication types.

The table i found here, ArcGIS Online Authentication | ArcGIS for Developers .


Is it true that I can't create/update/delete user's items using application authentication?


Was there any work arounds that anyone has implemented?


Thanks in advance for your time to clarify it for me.
