OAuth Authorization


This API enables partners to register their own systems or authorized third-party systems (referred to as “Application Clients” or “clients” in this document) to be able to execute actions on Yelp on a business user’s behalf. Based on the OAuth 2.0 Authorization Framework RFC 6749, Yelp grants an access token following a user’s successful login into the site, and in turn uses that token to authorize the user’s review response to be submitted.

APIs using OAuth Authorization:


Before the application client system can initiate a request for an access token, the partner must register with Yelp as a client of our OAuth Authorization system. Upon registration, the client will be issued a client ID and a client secret to be used in requests.
