Angular + Okta Sign-In Widget Example

This example app shows how to use Okta's Sign-In Widget in an Angular app.

Please read Build an Angular App with Okta's Sign-In Widget in 15 Minutes to see how this app was created.

Prerequisites: Node.js.

Okta has Authentication and User Management APIs that reduce development time with instant-on, scalable user infrastructure. Okta's intuitive API and expert support make it easy for developers to authenticate, manage and secure users and roles in any application.

Getting Started

To install this example application, run the following commands:

git clone https://github.com/oktadeveloper/okta-angular-sign-in-widget-example.git
cd okta-angular-sign-in-widget-example
npm install

This will get a copy of the project installed locally, install all of its dependencies and start the app.

Create an OIDC App in Okta

You will need to create an OIDC App in Okta to get your values to perform authentication.

OpenID Connect is built on top of the OAuth 2.0 protocol. It allows clients to verify the identity of the user and, as well as to obtain their basic profile information. To learn more, see http://openid.net/connect.

Login to your Okta account, or create one if you don't have one. Navigate to Applications and click on the Add Application button. Select SPA and click Next. On the next page, specify http://localhost:4200 as a Base URI, Login redirect URI, and Logout redirect URI. Click Done and copy the generated Client ID.

In src/app/shared/okta/okta.service.ts, set the baseUrl and paste your clientId.

this.widget = new OktaSignIn({
  baseUrl: 'https://{yourOktaDomain}.com',
  clientId: '{clientId}',
  redirectUri: 'http://localhost:4200',
  authParams: {
    issuer: 'default'

TIP: The value of {yourOktaDomain} should be something like dev-123456.oktapreview.com. Make sure you don't include -admin in the value!

After making these changes, you should be able to start the app (with ng serve) and log in with your credentials at http://localhost:4200.
