Angular 1 Samples

Table of Contents


This repository contains the Angular 1 front-end code that can be used along with back-end server samples.

Note: This Angular sample application is currently only compatible with our Express Sample Application. If you are using a different sample for the back-end or resource server, please check out the 1.10.0 version of this repository.

Please continue to visit to learn about new documentation and sample applications.

Using the built-in Express server

To run this sample:

  1. Clone this repository and navigate to the new directory.

    $ git clone && cd samples-js-angular-1
  2. Install the required dependencies.

    [samples-js-angular-1]$ npm install
  3. Run the mock Okta server. If you're interested in testing this sample against your own Okta org, follow the steps in the Express Quick Start.

    # Starts the mock-okta server at
    [samples-js-angular-1]$ npm run mock-okta
  4. In a different terminal window, run the Express server.

    # Starts the sample back-end on http://localhost:8080
    [samples-js-angular-1]$ npm start
  5. You're all set! Open a browser window to http://localhost:8080.

Note: Use chrome browser if you're running the mock-okta server, to test the sample.

Using your own Okta org

You can create your own Okta org by signing up for a free Developer Account

If you'd like to test this sample against your own Okta org, navigate to the Okta Developer Dashboard and follow these steps:

  1. Create a new Web application by clicking Add Application and selecting Web from the Applications page.
  2. After accepting the default configuration, click Done to redirect back to the General Settings of your application.
  3. Copy the Client ID and Client Secret, as it will be needed for the client configuration.
  4. Finally, navigate to https://{yourOktaDomain}.com/api/v1/authorizationServers/default to see if the Default Authorization Server is setup. If not, let us know. Then, replace the oidc settings in .samples.config.json to point to your new app:
// .samples.config.json
  "oidc": {
    "oktaUrl": "https://{{yourOktaDomain}}.com",
    "issuer": "https://{{yourOktaDomain}}.com/oauth2/default",
    "clientId": "{{yourClientId}}",
    "clientSecret": "{{yourClientSecret}}",
    "redirectUri": "http://localhost:8080/authorization-code/callback"

Stop the mock-okta server and Express server if you're running it.

Open a new terminal window, and run the Express server.

# Starts the sample back-end on http://localhost:8080
[samples-js-angular-1]$ npm start

You're all set! Open a browser window to http://localhost:8080.
