aerogear-ios-oauth2 Build Status

NOTE: The library has been tested with Xcode 6.3

OAuth2 Client based on aerogear-ios-http. Taking care of:

  • account manager for multiple OAuth2 accounts,
  • request access and refresh token,
  • grant access through secure external browser and URI schema to re-enter app,
  • (implicit or explicit) refresh tokens,
  • revoke tokens,
  • permanent secure storage,
  • adaptable to OAuth2 specific providers. Existing extensions: Google, Facebook, Keycloak 1.1.0.Final etc…
  • openID Connect login

100% Swift.

Example Usage

OAuth2 grant for GET with a predefined config like Facebook

var Http = Http()                       // [1]
let facebookConfig = FacebookConfig(    // [2]
    clientId: "YYY",
    clientSecret: "XXX",
    scopes:["photo_upload, publish_actions"])
var oauth2Module = AccountManager.addFacebookAccount(facebookConfig)  // [3]
http.authzModule = oauth2Module         // [4]
http.GET("/get", completionHandler: {(response, error) in   // [5]
    // handle response

Create an instance of Http [1] from aerogear-ios-http a thin layer on top of NSURLSession.

Fill-in the OAuth2 configuration in [2], here we use a predefined Config with all Facebook endpoint filled-in for us.

Create an OAuth2Module from AccountManager’s factory method in [3].

Inject OAuth2Module into http object in [4] and uses the http object to GET/POST etc…

See full description in

OpenID Connect with Keycloak

var Http = Http()
let keycloakConfig = KeycloakConfig(
    clientId: "sharedshoot-third-party",
    host: "http://localhost:8080",
    realm: "shoot-realm",
    isOpenIDConnect: true)
var oauth2Module = AccountManager.addKeycloakAccount(keycloakConfig)
http.authzModule = oauth2Module
oauth2Module.login {(accessToken: AnyObject?, claims: OpenIDClaim?, error: NSError?) in // [1]
    // Do your own stuff here

Similar approach for configuration, here we want to login as Keycloak user, using login method we get some user information back in OpenIDClaim object.

NOTE: The latest version of the library works with Keycloak 1.1.0.Final. Previous version of Keycloak 1.0.x will work except for the transparent refresh of tokens (ie: after access token expires you will have to go through grant process).
