FileMaker Open Authentication Implementation

Hello everyone,


I have been working on updating my fms-api-client to work with oAuth providers and I am afraid I am very stuck. I am hoping someone here might have some information to help me along.


I have followed official documentation here:


FileMaker 17 Data API Guide


I also followed a very good guide here:


ClickWorks | The FileMaker Data API and OAuth


However I can't get an authentication workflow to actually complete successfully. My oAuth provider (Google) redirects to FileMaker's oAuth page - {{domain}}/oauth/redirect - but that page never redirects or sends a request to the return url. The page is just blank.


According to the article and the documentation FileMaker should call url that I specified when generating the oAuth challenge url. You specify this url in X-FMS-Return-URL. Following the advice in the second article I tried matching the address domain with the return url domain. This did not solve the issue.


Does anyone have any idea why the request is never being set to the return url?


Does anyone know where I can see the source for the {{domain}}/oauth/redirect page so I can see what it is expecting?
