Using OAuth image has an error


It seems that there is an error in the picture from using OAuth 1.0a page -

This picture: - it looks like the ‘D’ should be Response no Request text description. ‘Response includes’ instead of ‘Request includes’.


I’m not sure it’s incorrect. To be pedantic, step D represents the start of a new HTTP request, sent to the client application. From a HTTP request/response standpoint, the diagram appears to be accurate.


Agree from the HTTP request/response but when you use it in code, you read ‘oauth_token’ and ‘oauth_verifier’ from a response and use them together with others for a request (step E). Just something to be aware when developing.


The image is taken directly from the OAuth specification - - so you’ll probably need to ask them to clarify things.
