Compatibility matrice

Kuzzle Version Plugin Version
1.x.x 4.x.x
2.x.x 5.x.x

Configuration

To edit the configuration of a plugin see custom plugin configuration.

List of available configurations:

Name Default value Type Description
strategies {} Object List of the providers you want to use with passport
credentials {} Object Credentials provided by the provider
persist {} Object Attributes you want to persist in the user credentials object if the user doesn't exist
scope [] Array List of fields in the OAUTH 2.0 scope of access
identifierAttribute String Attribute from the profile of the provider to use as unique identifier if you want to persist the user in Kuzzle
defaultProfile ["default"] Array Profiles of the new persisted user
kuzzleAttributesMapping {} Object Mapping of attributes to persist in the user persisted in Kuzzle
passportStrategy ''  String Strategy name for passport (eg. google-oauth20 while the name of the provider is google)

Here is an example of a configuration:

{
  "strategies": {
    "facebook": {
      "passportStrategy": "facebook",
      "credentials": {
        "clientID": "<your-client-id>",
        "clientSecret": "<your-client-secret>",
        "callbackURL": "http://localhost:8080/_login/facebook",
        "profileFields": ["id", "name", "picture", "email", "gender"]
      },
      "persist": [
        "picture.data.url",
        "last_name",
        "first_name",
        "email"
      ],
      "scope": [
        "email",
        "public_profile"
      ],
      "kuzzleAttributesMapping": {
        "userMail": "email" // will store the attribute "email" as "userEmail" into the user credentials object
      },
      "identifierAttribute": "email"
    }
  },
  "defaultProfiles": [
    "default"
  ]
}

identifierAttribute

This attribute will be used to identify your users. It has to be unique.

You need to choose an attribute declared in the persist array.

Attribute persistence

Attributes declared in the persist array will be persisted in the credentials object and not in the user content.

For example, if you have the following configuration:

{
  "strategies": {
    "facebook": {
      "persist": ["email", "first_name", "picture.data.url"],
      "kuzzleAttributesMapping": {
        "picture.data.url": "avatar_url"
      }
    }
  }
}

And your OAuth provider will send you the following _json payload:

{
  "email": "gfreeman@black-mesa.xen",
  "first_name": "gordon",
  "last_name": "freeman",
  "picture": {
    "data": {
      "url": "http://avatar.url"
    }
  }
}

The created user content will be:

{
  "content": {
    "profileIds": ["default"]
  },
  "credentials": {
    "facebook": {
      "email": "gfreeman@black-mesa.xen",
      "first_name": "gordon",
      "avatar_url": "http://avatar.url"
    }
  }
}

Usage

The easiest way to implement an oauth authentication in your front-end is to use the sdk login oauth popup module
