  app_id: APP-80W284485P519543T
  http_timeout: 30
  mode: sandbox
  # # with certificate
  # cert_path: "config/cert_key.pem"
  # # with token authentication
  # token: ESTy2hio5WJQo1iixkH29I53RJxaS0Gvno1A6.YQXZgktxbY4I2Tdg
  # token_secret: ZKPhUYuwJwYsfWdzorozWO2U9pI
  # # with Proxy
  # http_proxy: http://proxy-ipaddress:3129/
  # # with device ip address
  # device_ipaddress: "127.0.0.1"
test:
  <<: *default
production:
  <<: *default
  mode: live

Load Configurations from specified file:

PayPal::SDK::Core::Config.load('config/paypal.yml',  ENV['RACK_ENV'] || 'development')

Example

Request permission:

require 'paypal-sdk-permissions'

PayPal::SDK.configure({
  :mode      => "sandbox",  # Set "live" for production
  :app_id    => "APP-80W284485P519543T",
  :username  => "jb-us-seller_api1.paypal.com",
  :password  => "WX4WTU3S8MY44S7F",
  :signature => "AFcWxV21C7fd0v3bYYYRCpSSRl31A7yDhhsPUU2XhtMoZXsWHFxu-RWy" })

@api = PayPal::SDK::Permissions::API.new

# Build request object
@request_permissions = @api.build_request_permissions({
  :scope => ["ACCESS_BASIC_PERSONAL_DATA","ACCESS_ADVANCED_PERSONAL_DATA"],
  :callback => "http://localhost:3000/samples/permissions/get_access_token" })

# Make API call & get response
@response = @api.request_permissions(@request_permissions)

# Access Response
if @response.success?
  @response.token
  # Redirect url to grant permissions
  redirect_to @api.grant_permission_url(@response)
  # When the user then logs into PayPal and grants the requested permissions, the user will get redirected to the
  # callback url defined when building the permissions-request.
else
  @response.error
end

# In the controller handling the callback:
# http://localhost:3000/samples/permissions/get_access_token

class PermissionsController < ApplicationController
  include PayPal::SDK::Permissions

  def get_access_token
    api = PayPal::SDK::Permissions::API.new

    # Build request to exchange tokens
    request_access_token = api.build_get_access_token(
      # As an additional security measure, you should verify that the below "params['request_token']" is the
      # same token as the "@response.token" above for the current user. For instance, you could store the
      # "@response.token" in the user's session before the redirect and verify in this method.
      :token    => params['request_token'],
      :verifier => params['verification_code']
    )

    # Make API call & get response
    access_token_response = api.get_access_token(request_access_token)

    # Access Token Response
    if access_token_response.success?
      token        = access_token_response.token
      token_secret = access_token_response.token_secret
      # Now you have a token and token_secret you can use to make requests.
    else
      @error = access_token_response.error
      # Handle the error here
    end
  end
end

Make API call with token and token_secret:

@api = PayPal::SDK::Permissions::API.new({
   :token => "3rMSi3kCmK1Q3.BKxkH29I53R0TRLrSuCO..l8AMOAFM6cQhPTTrfQ",
   :token_secret => "RuE1j8RNRlSuL5T-PSSpVWLvOlI" })

@response = @api.get_basic_personal_data({
  :attributeList => {
    :attribute => [ "http://axschema.org/namePerson/first" ] } })
