Hey @souravchandra,


If an error occurs during OAuth, the customer will see an error in their browser. On your end you'll be able to see that a user was redirected to Oauth and never returned.


If you haven't already, I recommend taking a look at our OAuth tutorial here. Setting up the example app should help give a better understanding of the overall flow.
