Spring Security OAuth 2.0 Guide

This example shows how to create a Authorization Server with Spring Security and OAuth 2.0.

Please read A Quick Guide to OAuth 2.0 with Spring Security for a tutorial that shows you how to build the applications in this repo.

Prerequisites: Java 8 or 11.

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
cd okta-spring-boot-authz-server-example

Create an Okta Developer Account

If you don't have one, create an Okta Developer account. After you've completed the setup process, log in to your account and navigate to Applications > Add Application. Click Web and Next. On the next page, enter a name for your app (e.g., "Okta OAuth Client"), then click Done.

Update the OktaOAuthClient/src/main/resources/application.yml to have your new app's settings:

    issuer: https://{yourOktaDomain}/oauth2/default
    client-id: {yourClientId}
    client-secret: {yourClientSecret}

Start the OktaOAuthClient app using Gradle.

cd OktaOAuthClient
./gradlew bootRun

After everything starts, you should be able to log in with your credentials at http://localhost:8080.
