I had try as this answer Can the redirect_uri contain port number?

But I also get the redirect_uri does not match the redirect_uri error.

Provided `redirect_uri` does not match the `redirect_uri` this code was created with

I used Rails and my codes like this:

gem 'omniauth', '~> 1.9'
gem 'omniauth-oauth2', '~> 1.6'
gem 'omniauth-stackexchange', '~> 0.2.1'

# initializers/omniauth.rb

Rails.application.config.middleware.use OmniAuth::Builder do
  provider :stackexchange, Rails.application.secrets.stack_client_id, Rails.application.secrets.stack_client_secret, public_key: Rails.application.secrets.stack_key, site: 'stackoverflow',callback_url:'http://localhost:3000/'

My stackapp settings like this:

OAuth Domain:


Application Website:


Stack Apps Post: Not set

Client Side Flow Is Disabled

Desktop OAuth Redirect Uri Is Disabled

These are the setting pictures:

Who can help me ? Thanks so much.

  • I'm not a Ruby expert, but that doesn't look like how others use omniauth-stackexchange. See this other Q&A for example. – Brock Adams Mar 14 at 19:11

I get the reason:

Do not use gem 'omniauth-stackexchange', '~> 0.2.1' ,but instead of gem 'omniauth-stackexchange', git: 'https://github.com/nashby/omniauth-stackexchange.git'

The reason see this:add call back url
