We are deprecating the OAuth 2.0 service provided by Globus Nexus (also known as GOAuth). Authentication interfaces in Globus Nexus are deprecated and will be discontinued April 30, 2017. Globus Auth was recently added to the Globus platform and includes support for the OAuth 2.0 and OpenID Connect (OIDC) protocols, along with richer and more fine-grained identity and access management.

Several users have requested a native command line client to Globus services that can be installed on a local machine and used for simple scripting. We have just released a beta version of a new command line client that you can download and use with the Globus file transfer and sharing service. This is a native Python client application, and is available to all users. Documentation for this beta release is available in our Github repo. We invite you to try the new client and send any questions and feedback to support@globus.org.
