Question about adding users through connect tokens

Hi,

I am trying to allow users to connect their email account through my ruby on rails project's website, using connect tokens. I am using this guide: https://context.io/docs/lite/quickstart , and everything seems to work fine, except for one part.

Requesting a connect token goes fine, and the user is taken to the Context.io page that asks them to be sure they are logged in to their gmail with the "next step" button, but when they click the "next step" button, instead of being taken to gmail to grant access, the user is taken straight to the redirect url, and no new user is created.

Any idea why Step 7 in the guide I linked is being skipped?

Thanks,
Michael Milstead

    Hi Michael,
    That definitely sounds like bizarre behavior. If you make a connect token in the console, and copy the redirect_url link and paste it in a browser, does it skip the same step then or does it successfully add the account?

    If it's still skipping that step, take some screenshots and shoot us a message at support@context.io and we'll take a closer look!

    Cheers,
    Tony

    Hi Tony,

    Well, it's working now. I deleted a set of google OAuth credentials I was testing with a while ago for using context.io on android.

    Thanks,
