This guide provides detailed instructions on integrating Motive with your Terminal instance.

This is required for Motive specifically in order to guarantee:

  • The OAuth flow is consistent with your branding.
  • The permissions are customized for your specific needs.
  • You can publish your application on the Motive marketplace.

Creating a Developer Account

You can skip this step if you already have a Motive developer account

  1. Create a Motive developer account by signing up here.
    • Tip: use a shared email for your team as Motive does not have a multi-user feature.
  2. Verify your email address by clicking the link in the email sent to you.
  3. Log in to the Motive Developer Portal.
  4. Share the email + password with the Terminal Team so we can help you complete setup.

Creating an OAuth Application

To establish an OAuth client with Motive, execute the following steps:

  1. Create a new App:

    • Log in to the Motive Developer Portal.
    • Click the Create App button.
    • Give your application a name and click Create App.
  2. Navigate to Configuration

  3. Under Success Redirect URI, input:


Substitute {PUBLISHABLE_KEY} with your production publishable key, which is available in your Terminal dashboard. If you haven’t obtained production access to Terminal yet, you can skip this step and add the redirect URI later.

  1. Determine the Permissions your application will require.
  1. Click Save to finalize application setup.
  2. Share the email and password of the developer account with the Terminal Team.
  3. Terminal will then configure, test and activate the integration.
  4. Begin connecting Motive fleets to Terminal 🚛

Publishing Your Application

Once your integration is in production and Motive fleets have connected to your application, you can request that Motive review your application for inclusion in their marketplace.
