Single sign on with MYOBapi?

We do get asked from time to time, can I “sign up a user” with the MYOBapi (can I create a user profile from MYOB - you have all the details already). Technically the answer is no, however we have modified the OAUTH responses lately to give you some user information, to at least start down this path.

When a user logs in via OAUTH we responded with a payload that includes the access_token, refresh_token and expiry. That response has been extended to now also include a unqiue ID for the user and their email address.

You could use this information as a starting point for a user profile, and upon return from the OAUTH system to your service you could prompt the user to complete a profile. This way you can use their my.MYOB profile and the oauth login to manage their logins, making it easy for customers to log into your system with MYOB as the authorising service.
