Service Connection in Visual Builder with an OAuth2.0 client connection does not connect. (Doc ID 2872856.1)

Last updated on OCTOBER 31, 2023

Applies to:

Visual Builder Studio - Version 22.04.2 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


When trying to create a Service Connection in Visual Builder using the "Define By EndPoint" wizard and adding the POST endpoint URL and added an OAuth2.0 client connection - ClientID, Secret and Token URL, then testing this newly created service connection, the following response is returned:

  "type": "abcs://proxy_problem/oauth/auth_token_error",
  "title": "OAuth token resource returned an error",
  "detail": "OAuth token resource responded with status code invalid_request and body:\n\n{1}",
  "status": 400,
  "o:vbcs-token-response": {
  "error": "invalid_request"
  "o:vbcs-token-notes": {
  "thirdParty": true,
  "tokenUrl": "https://<HOST>",
  "credentialIDs": null,
  "clientId": "<CLIENT ID>",
  "noAuthHeader": false,
  "clientCredentials": "firstParty",
  "scope": "urn:opc:idm:__myscopes__",
  "form": {
  "grant_type": [
  "scope": [
  "responseStatus": 401

The OAuth server in this case is provided through Oracle Commerce Cloud.

Why is this not working correctly?
