DESCRIPTION

This module implements the authorization grant subset of the oauth 2 ietf spec draft. Action roles containing an implementation of each required endpoint in the specification are provided and should be applied to a Catalyst::Controller::ActionRole. The authorization grant flow is defined by the specification as follows:

  +--------+                                           +---------------+
  |        |--(A)------- Authorization Grant --------->|               |

  |        |--(G)----------- Refresh Token ----------->|               |
  |        |                                           |               |
  |        |<-(H)----------- Access Token -------------|               |
  +--------+           & Optional Refresh Token        +---------------+

The action roles should be applied to actions in a single controller, and no more than one action of each role type should be present.

Here is an overview of what roles are involved in each of those phases:

A - Catalyst::ActionRole::OAuth2::RequestAuth

Required

This is the action where the authentication grant flow begins, it validades and sanitizes the request parameters and generates an authorization code which is used for issuing a valid request to the GrantAuth action via a redirect. The authorization code is only generated if all parameters are well-formed and valid, this ensures that requests to the GrantAuth action can trust the request parameters if a valid authorization code is presented.

B - Catalyst::ActionRole::OAuth2::GrantAuth

Required

This action checks the request parameters for a valid authorization code, which should have been generated by a previous request to a RequestAuth action. This action should be customized to somehow confirm with the end-user if he wishes to effectively grant the authorization to the requesting client/app. The user-agent is redirected automatically to the correct endpoint if the authorization is granted.

C and D - Catalyst::ActionRole::OAuth2::AuthToken::ViaAuthGrant

Required

This action exchanges a valid authorization grant code and responds with an authorization token.

G and H - Catalyst::ActionRole::OAuth2::AuthToken::ViaRefreshToken

Optional

This action exchanges a valid refresh token for a new access token and refresh token.

CONFIGURATION

store

Takes a hashref containing two keys:

class

The store type to use, so far, only DBIC support is provided

client_model

The entity representing the client in your schema
