Invalid redirect URI on spotify auth

I try to auth user through my app with spotify Web API but I receive this error:

INVALID_CLIENT: Invalid redirect URI

URL:

GET https://accounts.spotify.com/authorize/?client_id=6ae90bf75bf748c8874a75d16682f0c5&response_type=code&redirect_uri=https%3A%2F%2Fexample.com%2Fcallback&scope=user-read-private%20user-read-email

I cant see where is the problem... Can you help?

You have to add the redirect URI to the White-list in "My Applications" panel.

e.g http://example.com/callback/


app.js:

var redirect_uri = 'http://localhost:8888/callback';

Spotify > My application:

http://localhost:8888/callback/

Dont forget to save.


I ran into a similar issue when authenticated via Authorization Code Flow.

Per the docs The value of this parameter must exactly match the value of redirect_uri supplied when requesting the authorization code. So make sure that the:

  1. redirect_uri that is configured in the dashboard
  2. redirect_uri in the GET https://accounts.spotify.com/authorize
  3. redirect_uri in the POST https://accounts.spotify.com/api/token

is exactly the same or else you will get a INVALID_CLIENT: Invalid redirect URI


First. You have to be sure that you're using app.js from authorization_code directory.

Second. Be sure you edited app.js. That third line is important.

var client_id = '---'; // Your client id
var client_secret = '---'; // Your secret
var redirect_uri = 'http://localhost:8888/callback'; // Your redirect uri - EXAMPLE

I use the SpotifyAPI-NET API wrapper by JohnnyCrazy and was having this problem despite adding the URL I specified in my wrapper call to my white list as specified above.

The browser's address bar should show the redirect URL it is using buried in the middle of the string - I found that it was also making a request with "https://accounts.spotify.com:8000/authorize" as the redirect URL - perhaps the wrapper is making 2 API calls, but I found that only by whitelisting both this URL and the one I was specifying would it work for me.


+1 to adding 'http://localhost:8888/callback' to the Redirect URIs list in your App's settings via https://developer.spotify.com/dashboard/applications

It's a shame this is not mentioned on the quick start: https://developer.spotify.com/documentation/web-playback-sdk/quick-start/
