A ColdFusion CFC to manage authentication using the OAuth2 protocol.

Base Component

The core component, oauth2.cfc, can be used as a standalone OAuth2 tool for most providers.

Instantiate the component and pass in the required properties like so:

var oOauth2 = new oauth2(
	client_id           = '1234567890',
	client_secret       = 'XXXXXXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXXXXXX',
	authEndpoint        = 'http://authprovider.fake/authorize',
	accessTokenEndpoint = 'http://authprovider.fake/token',
	redirect_uri        = 'http://redirect.fake'
);

Build the URL that you can then use to redirect the user to the provider for authorization:

var strURL = oOauth2.buildRedirectToAuthURL()

On your redirect page, once you have received your code value from the provider, you can then request the access token like so:

var sData = oOauth2.makeAccessTokenRequest( code = url.code );

Providers

Some initial providers have been created for you, more will come.

These are:

  • bitbucket
  • bitly
  • dropbox
  • facebook
  • freeagent
  • freshbooks
  • github
  • gitlab
  • google
  • instagram
  • linkedin
  • microsoft
  • slack
  • spotify
  • strava

The provider components extend the core component to help lighten the load. They simply help to provide correct OAuth2 access to the provider in question as some have different requirements for parameters to send through.

Instantiation for the provider components is the same as the core, although you don't have to send through the authEndpoint and accessTokenEndpoint values as they are included in the provider components for you.

Adding to the providers

You can easily create your own additional providers. If you do, please make a pull request to add them back into the main repository for others to benefit.

To do so, take a look at one of the existing provider components. These extend the core and will always need their own init, buildRedirectToAuthURL and makeAccessTokenRequest methods to make sure the correct required values are sent through to the providers API.

LinkedIn

Instantiation

var oLinkedIn = new providers.linkedIn(
	client_id           = '1234567890',
	client_secret       = 'XXXXXXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXXXXXX',
	redirect_uri        = 'http://redirect.fake'
);

Authorization

LinkedIn requires a state value for authorization to help protect against CSRF attacks. In this example I'm setting a UUID which can then be persisted to the redirect_uri page, but obviously you can make it whatever you want.

var strState = createUUID();
var strURL = oLinkedIn.buildRedirectToAuthURL( state = strState );

You can optionally choose to send through scope values for access. These are sent through as an array into the method, which converts them into query string parameters for you:

var strState = createUUID();
var aScope = [
	'r_fullprofile',
	'r_emailaddress',
	'w_share'
];
var strURL = oLinkedIn.buildRedirectToAuthURL(
	state = strState,
	scope = aScope
);

Google

Instantiation

var oGoogle = new providers.google(
	client_id           = '1234567890',
	client_secret       = 'XXXXXXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXXXXXX',
	redirect_uri        = 'http://redirect.fake'
);

Authorization

Google recommend that you send more properties through for the authorization endpoint request. As a result, anything they have recommended I've set to required, which are:

  • scope
  • access_type ( defaults to online )
  • state

Optional parameters are:

  • include_granted_scopes ( defaults to true )
  • login_hint
  • prompt
var strState = createUUID();
var aScope = [
	'https://www.googleapis.com/auth/drive.readonly',
	'https://www.googleapis.com/auth/analytics.readonly'
];
var strURL = oGoogle.buildRedirectToAuthURL(
	scope = aScope,
	state = strState
);

Testing

The component has been tested on Adobe ColdFusion 9 and 10 and Lucee 4.5.
