Step 2 of oauth2 flow (Authenticating & Authorizing)

I’m working with a developer at my institution to create a tool to automatically create new users in Canvas as they’re pushed to an internal system. We’re going to be using API calls & a developer key authorized by a special account to create the users.


 

We’re currently working on the Oauth2 flow and have a question. We want the process to be fully automated, but it looks like step 2 requires manual intervention to login and authorize the app. Is there some way to automatically authorize an app to negate the need to login? If not, is there some way to login and authorize the app through commands and bypass the need for manually doing it in a browser?
