In auth_token_required and auth_required decorators better use unauthorized() callback from core flask-login. This solution is more flexible.

I'm not so sure this is the best approach yet. There are usually different requirements for authentication based on a token vs other methods. For instance, auth tokens are generally used for API access and it doesn't necessarily make the most sense to assume the same flow for tokens as with sessions. I'm currently trying to think of how best to be more flexible with unauthorized access flows.

In my project in the case of unauthorized access i need to return json response.
How to do this in current version of extension?

Ok - I've successfully authenticated my rest service method against token (@auth_token_required) but now how to access data from token like user_id so I can use it in protected (accessed method) ?

I've tired in documentation but without success. Goggle didn't help too.

@mattupstate Any updates on this?

I am facing the same issue (I cannot change the unauthorized message).

Maybe you could create another callback for auth token unauthorized errors, if you don't want to use the same callback as used by login_required.

But at the very least, in _get_unauthorized_response do an abort(401) instead of returning a Response object, because a handler can be defined for that.

Currently, I am defining my own auth_token_required decorator, but it would be nice if a solution for this could be found.
