Can you let me know what type of RC app did you defined. Is your localhost on your local machine? And did you set the same redirect_uri's value to the "OAuth Redirect URI" field for your app?

Is there any reason you don't want to use our SDKs for your code?

Since the oauth type is Authorization code, make sure all the parameters are provided.

If you miss redirect uri parameter in request which is a mandatory part, you will unable to get token which is supposed to be exchanged with access token
