DigitalOcean OAuth2 lacks PKCE for Mobile App integration

Hi,

Last year I created a ticket on DigitalOcean’s OAuth2 implementation https://www.digitalocean.com/community/questions/oauth2-application-callback-url-does-not-allow-mobile-app-url-scheme-types

However, OAuth2 PKCE (Proof Key for Code Exchange - https://oauth.net/2/pkce/) is also missing from the Authorization Flow which is a security layer when used on native apps.

Hi @miniyarov,

Thanks for resurfacing your question on custom callback URIs, and for raising the issue around PKCE during OAuth.

I have raised both concerns with our teams internally once again and they have been tracked into tickets for the relevant teams to take a look at and consider next steps on.

Unfortunately, I can’t really give a concrete timeline on either of these nor can I really promise that we’ll be able to address them. However, do rest assured that they have been raised internally and have properly been tracked into tickets for teams to review.

Hope that helps,
- Matt.
