OAuth is a protocol for securely granting to third-party tools a limited capability to use your wiki user account.

There are separate pages about different aspects of OAuth in MediaWiki:

  • Extension:OAuth – extension which implements an OAuth server in MediaWiki
  • Help:OAuth – user documentation for OAuth on Wikimedia sites
  • OAuth/For Developers – developer documentation for creating tools that can interface with a wiki running the OAuth extension
