Passport strategy for authenticating with SceneID using the OAuth 2.0 API.

This module lets you authenticate using SceneID in your Node.js applications. By plugging into Passport, SceneID authentication can be easily and unobtrusively integrated into any application or framework that supports Connect-style middleware, including Express.


$ npm install passport-sceneid


Create an Application

Before using passport-sceneid, you must register an application with SceneID. See [SceneID API Docs] for how to apply for credentials. You will be issued a client ID and client secret, which need to be provided to the strategy. You will also need to apply for a redirect URI which matches the route in your application.

Configure Strategy

The SceneID authentication strategy authenticates users using a SceneID account and OAuth 2.0 tokens. The client ID and secret obtained are supplied as options when creating the strategy. The strategy also requires a verify callback, which receives the access token and optional refresh token, as well as profile which contains the authenticated user's SceneID profile.
The verify callback must call cb providing a user to complete authentication.

var SceneidStrategy = require('passport-sceneid').Strategy;

passport.use(new SceneidStrategy({
    clientSecret: SCENEID_CLIENT_SECRET,
    callbackURL: ""
  function(accessToken, refreshToken, profile, cb) {
    User.findOrCreate({ sceneId: }, function (err, user) {
      return cb(err, user);

Authenticate Requests

Use passport.authenticate(), specifying the 'sceneid' strategy, to authenticate requests.

For example, as route middleware in an Express application:

  passport.authenticate('sceneid', { scope: 'basic', state: 'el barto was here' }));

  passport.authenticate('sceneid', { failureRedirect: '/login' }),
  function(req, res) {
    // Successful authentication, redirect home.


Developers using the popular Express web framework can refer to an example as a starting point for their own web applications. The example shows how to authenticate users using Facebook. However, because both Facebook and SceneID use OAuth 2.0, the code is similar. Simply replace references to Facebook with corresponding references to SceneID.
