Spring Boot Login Options

This repository shows how to create a plethora of login options for Spring Boot 2.1. Please read A Quick Guide to Spring Boot Login Options to see how this example was created.

Prerequisites: Java 8.

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, run the following commands:

git clone
cd okta-spring-boot-login-options-example

The basic-auth, custom-form-auth, and form-auth examples can all be run using:

./gradlew bootRun

Look at the code or the blog post for the hard-coded credentials. The blog post also has instructions for configuring GitHub and Okta as identity providers.

To run the oauth-okta-starter example, you'll need to create an account and OIDC app on Okta.

Create an Application in Okta

Log in to your Okta Developer account (or sign up if you don’t have an account).

  1. From the Applications page, choose Add Application.
  2. On the Create New Application page, select Web.
  3. Give your app a memorable name, add http://localhost:8080/login/oauth2/code/okta as a Login redirect URI, then click Done.

Copy your issuer (found under API > Authorization Servers), client ID, and client secret into oauth-okta-starter/src/main/resources/application.yml as follows:

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

NOTE: The value of {yourOktaDomain} should be something like Make sure you don't include -admin in the value!

After modifying this file, start the example with ./gradlew bootRun. You should be able to authenticate with Okta at http://localhost:8080.


This example uses the following open source libraries:
