Hi,

I am experimenting with a Windows application that connects to geni.com.

I am able to search for people, and present their profiles in my application, but I am not able to see the details on non-historical (non-public I guess) people.

I would have expecting to be see the same details that i do when I log into the web site.

On the other hand, there a number of obscure authentication types described, and I haven't tested them all...

In the authentication method I am using, i present the website authentication server with my application-id and my app-secret, i.e. this one:

https://www.geni.com/platform/oauth/request_token?client_id=YOUR_APP_ID&client_secret=YOUR_APP_SECRET&grant_type=client_credentials

After this type of authentication, i receive a response similar to this one,

{"expires_in":86400,"refresh_token":"wEq6FMb3CcfPN6CckQv7","access_token":"sye4NMd130L4wqq13zjqqLHwuHd5jnnKwdVi9S8X"}

and I assume that I should add something like

&refresh_token=wEq6FMb3CcfPN6CckQv7&access_token=sye4NMd130L4wqq13zjqqLHwuHd5jnnKwdVi9S8X

to the URL of each request I do after that, although I haven't seen that described anywhere.

Still, after this, I don't see birth dates or exact names of my relatives, as i do when I log into the web site.

What do I do wrong?

Regards, Kenneth

Similar problem as discussed here: http://www.geni.com/discussions/120839

The Application Login method your URL example tells me that it is are only used for accessing public data, like for example Google's indexing of the none-login version of the public profiles.
