- pClientID The application client ID obtained when setting up your application with the web service.
- pClientSecret The application client secret obtained when setting up your application with the web service.
- pScopes A comma delimited list of authorization scopes. Valid scopes will be found in the API documentation of the service being authorized.

In order to handle the redirect the library accepts socket connections on localhost on a configurable port. The redirect uri configured when setting up your application with the web service should be http://127.0.0.1:port where port is the port that can be configured with the port parameter. It is recommended to use the range 49152-65535.
Warning: The client secret should be kept securely when distributing an application in order to protect your application from malicious use. The recommended way to do this is to include the client secret into a script in a password protected stack. If that is not possible allow users to configure their own application with the web service and enter their own client id and secret into a preference instead of distributing your client id and secret.
