Step 1 of ETRADE authentication. Create an oauth app using the key and secret that can be obtained after completing the agreements on ETRADE Developer.

etrd_auth_credentials(etrade_key, etrade_secret, sandbox = FALSE)

Arguments

etrade_key

Either a sandbox or production key provided by ETRADE after completing the agreements on ETRADE Developer

etrade_secret

Either a sandbox or production secret provided by ETRADE after completing the agreements on ETRADE Developer

sandbox

ETRADE offers a sandbox environment for validating API calls and responses. If using the sandbox environment, this must be set to TRUE in each function called throughout etrader. ETRADE states "Sandbox responses use stored data that's intended to provide typical responses for basic use cases. So the responses you receive will not contain current data, and may not exactly match your requests in other ways." Essentially, the responses will not match the requests entered but successful pull will indicate whether the entry was valid or not.

Value

an oauth app stored into options by default

Details

Authentication into the ETRADE environment requires a three step process: set ETRADE credentials, generate request tokens to create a login URL, and use the verification code to create access tokens. The Key and Secret need to be fed into this function to set the credentials into an oauth app that can be fed into the next function: etrd_auth_login_url.

etrd_auth_credentials to set the key and secret into an oauth app, etrd_auth_login_url to generate request tokens and create a login URL, etrd_auth_access_token to use the verification code to create access tokens, etrd_auth_manage_token to renew or revoke access tokens

Examples

if (FALSE) { # Pass the key and secret from ETRADE etrade_cred = etrd_auth_credentials(etrade_key = 'PRODUCTION_ALPHANUMERIC_OAUTH_KEY', etrade_secret = 'PRODUCTION_ALPHANUMERIC_OAUTH_SECRET') }
