Developing with DocuSign: Application Authentication

I’ve started a new screencast series, “Developing with DocuSign.” Please see below for the first episode and let me know what you think in the comments.

In the first episode, I’ve included a full demo of the OAuth JWT authentication flow, used by service applications to authenticate with DocuSign when no user is present to log in.

The software source files for the screencast are available on GitHub.

Additional resources available for the OAuth JWT flow:

      Since the user is present when Xamarin forms are used, your application would use either the OAuth Implicit Grant or OAuth Authorization Code Grant flow. The Implicit Grant flow would be preferred. See these two Microsoft docs: doc 1, doc 2, for more information.
