Integration 0Auth in mobile apps


I am integrating OAuth in my iOS app using Auth0 with Linode as a custom social connection. I've encountered an issue with the redirect URI during the authentication flow.

After the user authenticates with Linode, I need to redirect back to my app using a custom URL scheme (e.g., com.DumbSoftwareCompany.Linode://callback). However, when I attempt to set this custom URL scheme as the callback in the Linode OAuth client settings, I receive an error stating "Invalid protocol (use one of http, https)."

Linode's OAuth configuration seems to require a callback URL with a standard web protocol (http or https), which is not compatible with the custom URL scheme required for deep linking back into a native iOS application.

How can I configure a custom URL scheme for my mobile app in Linode's OAuth settings? Has anyone faced a similar issue, or is there a workaround to allow Linode to redirect to a custom scheme rather than a web URL?

Any guidance or advice on this matter would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!

I don't have any experience with the services you're using but I did a bit of digging and found that this issue with OAuth popped up on Stack Exchange with regard to Google Cloud as well. I found some posts that may be relevant to your situation that I'll link below:

You can also double check the Linode documentation on Managing the OAuth 2 Callback URL.
