Authentication

You must apply for a Client ID and Client Secret from us manually. There is no automated system for this. Please send an email to sitefeedback@igdb.se explaining and linking to information about your app, the scopes you require, why you require those scopes and finally, the oAuth callback url.

Authentication is done using the oAuth2 workflow.
