i appreciate your help

There are few things you might check:

  1. The path might not be / please check if you follow every step of Forge OAuth documentation.
  2. You might need queryParameters added like in example:
authorization:
          remote: google-account
          path: /somePath/oauth2/v2.0/authorize
          queryParameters: { response_mode: 'query' }

Also, please provide a traceId from the request going to https://id.atlassian.com/outboundAuth/finish if those two things will not work.

Hi,
One more question - are you sure that all needed data is provided and there is no null or undefined value instead of it and that data is provided in the right time (async functions may lead to race condition)?

Hi @AchrafMECHTA,

I have created an app with github as provider with the below manifest, can you try with the sample below and see if you are able to pull the details of user?

remotes:
  - key: github-oauth
    baseUrl: https://github.com
  - key: github-user
    baseUrl: https://api.github.com
modules:
  macro:
    - key: github-external-auth
      function: main
      title: github-external-auth
      description: github-external-auth
  function:
    - key: main
      handler: index.run
      providers:
        auth:
          - github
app:
  id: <app-id>
permissions:
  scopes: []
  external:
    fetch:
      backend:
        - https://github.com
        - https://api.github.com
providers:
  auth:
    - key: github
      name: Github
      scopes:
        - read:user
        - public_repo
      type: oauth2
      bearerMethod:
        type: authorization-header
      clientId:<client_ID>
      remotes:
        - github-oauth
        - github-user
      actions:
        authorization:
          remote: github-oauth
          path: /login/oauth/authorize
          queryParameters:
            response_type: code
        exchange:
          remote: github-oauth
          path: /login/oauth/access_token
          resolvers:
            accessToken: access_token
        revokeToken:
          remote: github-oauth
          path: /login/oauth/access_token
        retrieveProfile:
          remote: github-user
          path: /user
          resolvers:
            id: id
