identity.getRedirectURL()

Generates a URL that you can use as a redirect URL.

The URL is derived from your extension's ID, so if you use this function you should probably set your extension's ID explicitly using the applications key (otherwise, each time you temporarily install the extension, you'll get a different redirect URL).

See Getting a redirect URL for more information on redirect URLs.
