User authentication (ClientLogin)

This is the old method for authenticating a user with Inoreader. It is available for compatibility purposes only. Developers are encouraged to use our OAuth 2.0 authentication endpoint for new apps and migrate existing ones when possible.

The Inoreader API is mimicking Google ClientLogin authentication for backwards compatibility with older clients.

Request:

https://www.inoreader.com/accounts/ClientLogin

Note that while you can call other methods via plain HTTP (although not recommended), this method will return a 301 redirect if you do so.

Request parameters:

Response

The response for both methods is the same

If the backend is unreachable for some reason, you will get an error 503 response:

> POST /accounts/ClientLogin HTTP/1.1
> User-Agent: curl/7.19.7 (x86_64-redhat-linux-gnu) libcurl/7.19.7 NSS/3.14.0.0 zlib/1.2.3 libidn/1.18 libssh2/1.4.2

If the username or password are incorrect, you will receive a 401 code together with an error message. For more information see Error handling.

If the response is successful (HTTP code 200), you must store the Auth token and use it in all subsequent requests to the API by including this header:

Authorization: GoogleLogin auth=G2UlCa...Fx
