DiscordApplication.GenerateBotOAuth does not account for all OAuth scopes

See original GitHub issue


Using the DiscordApplication.GenerateBotOAuth() method does not allow selecting all scopes to generate an OAuth URI.
It currently only supports the bot scope, and doesn’t support redirect URIs.


Starting from an ideal result of applications.commands
This link has scopes bot and applications.commands and permission 0x8 (Administrator) specified.

(Generated from Discord’s OAuth URL Generator tool, using the following settings) image

However, the current method only allows specifying a DSharpPlus.Permissions argument, inferring that the OAuth link will only use the bot scope.

Ideally, we should be able to specify further parameters, like OAuth scopes, and a redirect link, used by other scopes (only bot and applications.commands don’t make use of a redirect).

An ideal implementation would be an overload, or extending the current method, as such:

public string GenerateBotOAuth(
    Permissions permissions = Permissions.None, 
    OAuthScopes scopes = OAuthScopes.Bot, 
    string RedirectUri = null) 
{ /* Implementation */ }

// TODO: Add OAuthScopes enum.

Instead of the current method, found here (source) :

public string GenerateBotOAuth(Permissions permissions = Permissions.None) { /* Implementation */ }

Let it also be known that the current method spars absolutely no documentation whatsoever, so we might want to brush up on that too ^^

Steps to reproduce



If maintainers have their hands full, I’d be happy to Fork & PR relevant changes, as well as add documentation to the method, given my first-hand interest in this issue.

Just saw the follow-up this morning. I wanted to apologise for bringing this up in the first place, and apologise to you people, especially @VelvetThePanda, as a maintainer. Indeed, this should not’ve been brought up. Not wanting to reiterate such a mistake, I’m ready to renew my support by bringing solid contributions to DSharpPlus, wherever I can.

To conclude, thank you lads/lasses for such a quick conclusion to this issue 😃

Thank you for your apology, I look forward to working with you in the future (if desired)
