I want to secure my API with FOSUserBundle (and avoid the use of FOSOAuthServerBundle due to lack of documentation with complete example).

To make my API secure, I just created firewalls as follows:

        pattern:       ^/(_(profiler|wdt)|css|images|js)/
        security:      false
        pattern:      ^/api/doc
        security:     false
        pattern: ^/
            provider: fos_userbundle
            csrf_token_generator: security.csrf.token_manager
        logout:       true
        anonymous:    true

    - { path: ^/login, roles: IS_AUTHENTICATED_ANONYMOUSLY } 
    - { path: ^/api, roles: [ IS_AUTHENTICATED_FULLY ] } 
    - { path: ^/admin/, roles: [ROLE_SUPER_ADMIN]}

This is great! But this requires that every one has to be connected before using the website so that I can display the list of ads, etc. ( Even GET queries needs a connected for security purpose)

To overcome, I am thinking about having all the users connected with a "default" user with limited privileges (just enough for simple querying without posting).

Is it possible to do so?

Thanks for your help.

PS: I did manage to get FOSUserBundle and FOSOAuthServerBundle working together. In fact, I was able to create a client and get an access token for it through command lines. But, I was not able to config the security.yml properly so that I get a login page that returns an access token.

@mappedinn what is exactly your use case ?
A way of doing is to authorize anonymous authentication and then for each entry point you want to secure, ask the user to be fully authenticated.

Closing as this is not really FOSUserBundle related.
