Error: invalid_client no registered origin
UPDATE: I changed accepted answer to Johno Scott instead as he refers to the newer version of the console, whereas mine was only true for the older version.
I solved it. I needed to enter a WEB ORIGIN on the OAuth 2.0 Client ID screen. Specifically, it had to be the exact path/url of the
index.html file, otherwise it defaults to the root domain which doesn't work.
This screenshot shows you exactly where it needs to be entered:
I have installed the Google Drive Realtime API sample files on my web server, following these instructions, including generating a client_id in the Cloud Console and inserting it into the
When I visit that page and click the button to authorize the app, it pops up with a new window and shows:
no registered origin
The Request Details are:
openid_connect_request=true cookie_policy_enforce=false scope=https://www.googleapis.com/auth/drive.install https://www.googleapis.com/auth/drive.file https://www.googleapis.com/auth/plus.me response_type=token access_type=online redirect_uri=postmessage proxy=oauth2relay865404532 origin=http://mywebsite.com state=264939258|0.165356673 display=page client_id=1077585001321.apps.googleusercontent.com authuser=0
I can't see any other client_id that I should be using in the Cloud Console. Does anybody know how to overcome this error? Thanks for your help.
invalid_client no registered origin for service account approach
Service accounts are typically used in server-to-server communication. You can think of a service account as a robot user that has permissions to access the API. Unless you're doing domain-wide delegation (where a service account can act on behalf of all users on a domain), you probably just want to use OAuth. Perhaps try the credentials wizard and see what it recommends?
If you do end up wanting to use service accounts, you'll need to download a private key for the service account and sign the request with that key (rather than just including the OAuth client ID). To do that, I recommend using one of the Google API Client Libraries.
