Security Enhancement for OAuth 2.0 Implementation


Audience: All Users

NetDocuments uses OAuth 2.0 to grant authorization for your applications associated with NetDocuments to gain access to a user’s protected data.

Prior to this enhancement, NetDocuments would prompt for authorization on an application's initial login and would then automatically allow access on subsequent logins.

Following the OAuth 2.0 enhancement, users should not be prompted to authorize again unless an application has been inactive for a period of time greater than 40 days.

Upon the release of OAuth 2.0, users will be prompted with the dialogue box below. Users should expect to see this dialogue box on the first use of each application associated with the NetDocuments platform.
