Creating Tokens for ManageEngine ServiceDesk Plus

Before configuring the ManageEngine ServiceDesk Plus connector in Lucidum, you must first create some tokens. Lucidum will use the API key to access the ManageEngine ServiceDesk Plus .

To set up MESDP OAuth authorization for Lucidum connector, follow the steps below ( ):

  1. Register a new application at Zoho Developer Console (

    • Choose “Self Client” type at the Developer Console:

    • Click “Create” to create a new client

    • Under the “Client Secret” tab, record the Client ID and Client Secret, which will be used later to generate the refresh token (e.g., copy the Client ID and Client Secret and paste them into a text file)

    • Under the “Generate Code” tab, fill in the application’s scope information as below:

      • Scope: SDPOnDemand.assets.READ,SDPOnDemand.general.READ

      • Time Duration: 10 minutes

      • Scope Description (optional): Lucidum SDP Connector

    • Click “Create” on the “Generate Code” to generate a temporary code. Record/copy this code and paste it into the same text file with the Client ID and Client Secret. Note that this code is valid for only 10 minutes. Therefore, in 10 minutes, a refresh token needs to be generated with this code, the Client ID, and the Client Secret

  2. Generate access and refresh token by making a POST request to the following URL: it is easier to do the POST request under the Postman tool

    • Replace {code} with the temporary code obtained from Step 1

    • Replace {client_id} with the Client ID obtained from Step 1

    • Replace {client_secret} with the Client Secret obtained from Step 1

  3. If the POST request is successful, you will receive one output like this:

    { "access_token": "1000.******************",
      "refresh_token": "1000.******************", 
      "token_type": "Bearer", "expires_in": 3600 }

Record the refresh token from the “refresh_token” field.
