Support for OAuth 2 and OpenId Connect (OIDC) for Angular 2.


This is an old version of this library. You can find the new one here:


Successfully tested with the Angular 2 (RC) Component Router, PathLocationStrategy and CommonJS-Bundling via webpack.


  • Logging in via OAuth2 and OpenId Connect (OIDC)
  • Using OIDC is optional
  • Validating claims of the id_token regarding the specs (aud, iss, nbf, exp, at_hash)
  • Hook for validating the signature of the received id_token
  • Single-Sign-Out by redirecting to the auth-server's logout-endpoint


You can use the following OIDC-Sample-Server for Testing. It assumes, that your Web-App runns on http://localhost:8080.

Following samples use Angular 2 RC 1 with the "newest RC1-Router". For samples regarding the "BETA-Router" that has been deprecated after the BETA-phase, see the older version of this readme-file.

Setup Provider for OAuthService

import {bootstrap}    from '@angular/platform-browser-dynamic';
import {HTTP_PROVIDERS} from '@angular/http';
import {ROUTER_PROVIDERS} from '@angular/router';
import {AppComponent} from './app.component';

import { OAuthService } from 'angular2-oauth2/oauth-service';

var providers = [  
    OAuthService,   // <-- Provider for OAuthService

bootstrap(AppComponent, providers);


import { OAuthService } from 'angular2-oauth2/oauth-service';

    selector: 'flug-app',
    template: require("./app.component.html"),
    directives: [ROUTER_DIRECTIVES] // routerLink, router-outlet 
    { path: '/',                  component: HomeComponent },
    { path: '/flug-buchen',       component: FlugBuchen},
export class AppComponent { 
    constructor(private oauthService: OAuthService) {
        // Login-Url
        this.oauthService.loginUrl = ""; //Id-Provider?
        // URL of the SPA to redirect the user to after login
        this.oauthService.redirectUri = window.location.origin + "/index.html";
        // The SPA's id. Register SPA with this id at the auth-server
        this.oauthService.clientId = "spa-demo";
        // The name of the auth-server that has to be mentioned within the token
        this.oauthService.issuer = "";

        // set the scope for the permissions the client should request
        this.oauthService.scope = "openid profile email voucher";
        // set to true, to receive also an id_token via OpenId Connect (OIDC) in addition to the
        // OAuth2-based access_token
        this.oauthService.oidc = true;
        // Use setStorage to use sessionStorage or another implementation of the TS-type Storage
        // instead of localStorage
        // To also enable single-sign-out set the url for your auth-server's logout-endpoint here
        this.oauthService.logoutUrl = "{{id_token}}";
        // This method just tries to parse the token within the url when
        // the auth-server redirects the user back to the web-app
        // It dosn't initiate the login

Home-Component (for login)

import { Component } from '@angular/core';
import { OAuthService } from 'angular2-oauth2/oauth-service';

    templateUrl: "app/home.html" 
export class HomeComponent {
    constructor(private oAuthService: OAuthService) {
    public login() {
    public logoff() {
    public get name() {
        let claims = this.oAuthService.getIdentityClaims();
        if (!claims) return null;
        return claims.given_name; 
<h1 *ngIf="!name">
<h1 *ngIf="name">
    Hallo, {{name}}

<button class="btn btn-default" (click)="login()">
<button class="btn btn-default" (click)="logoff()">

Calling a Web API with OAuth-Token

Pass this Header to the used method of the Http-Service within an Instance of the class Headers:

var headers = new Headers({
    "Authorization": "Bearer " + this.oauthService.getAccessToken()

Validate id_token

In cases where security relies on the id_token (e. g. in hybrid apps that use it to provide access to local resources) you could use the callback validationHandler to define the logic to validate the token's signature. The following sample uses the validation-endpoint of IdentityServer3 for this:

    validationHandler: context => {
        var search = new URLSearchParams();
        search.set('token', context.idToken); 
        search.set('client_id', oauthService.clientId);
        return http.get(validationUrl, { search }).toPromise();

Callback after successful login

There is a callback onTokenReceived, that is called after a successful login. In this case, the lib received the access_token as well as the id_token, if it was requested. If there is an id_token, the lib validated it in view of it's claims (aud, iss, nbf, exp, at_hash) and - if a validationHandler has been set up - with this validationHandler, e. g. to validate the signature of the id_token.

    onTokenReceived: context => {
        // Output just for purpose of demonstration
        // Don't try this at home ... ;-)
        console.debug("logged in");
    validationHandler: context => {
        var search = new URLSearchParams();
        search.set('token', context.idToken); 
        search.set('client_id', oauthService.clientId);
        return http.get(validationUrl, { search}).toPromise();
