Released in 1.47.
Enables an application to authenticate on behalf of a particular user. Use the resulting user
sessionToken when calling any OBO-enabled endpoint.
Session Token Management
The token you receive is valid for the lifetime of a session that is defined by your pod's administration team. This ranges from 1 hour to 2 weeks.
You should keep using the same token until you receive a HTTP 401, at which you should re-authenticate and get a new token for a new session.
Datafeeds survive session expiration, you do not need to re-create your datafeed if your session expires.
To call this endpoint, you must have a valid application
sessionToken for an application that has been installed for the user who you intend to authenticate as.
Note: The app calling this endpoint should be enabled and installed for the user. In addition, it should have ACT_AS_USER permission.
Get Started with OBO
