  • To prevent new authtoken generation and ensure new integration tasks (created after the deadline specified in the post) work as expected, a Zoho OAuth connection with appropriate scopes is mandatory. Existing integration tasks will continue to work, with or without the connections parameter, until you manually delete the authtoken from Zoho Accounts.

  • Add relevant scopes from the Zoho Writer API when creating the connection.

  • Refer to this post for a list of Zoho services that support the Connections page.
