Why is there a consent screen for the first step to get the code? How would I possible click the Accept in a server environment? Could anyone please help me out if possible.

@rohanmenon96 you wouldn't do this on a server you would do it on your local machine. A server doesn't have a browser window. Get a refresh token then store it and upload that to your server
