Install

You can install this node directly from the Node-RED editor by going to the Manage Palette menu and searching for node-red-contrib-oauth2. Alternatively, you can install it using npm:

$ cd ~/.node-red
$ npm install node-red-contrib-oauth2

Usage

The node requires an access token URL and a set of client credentials to authenticate with that URL. The node will generate an HTTP request to the access token URL to retrieve the access token using the client credentials. The access token can be stored in a message property that can be used by subsequent nodes in a flow.

The node provides two modes of operation:

  1. Static credentials: The client credentials can be set in the node configuration page.
  2. Dynamic credentials: The client credentials can be sent as part of the message payload to the node.

Inputs

Input Type Description
container string This refers to the name of the container that is intended to receive the message object. By default, it is set to oauth2Response.
grant type object This specifies the grant type used to obtain the access token.
access token url string This is the URL used to obtain the access token.
client id string This is the unique identifier for the client application.
client secret string This is the secret key used to authenticate the client application.
username string This is the username used for authentication. Grant Type: password
password string This is the password used for authentication. Grant Type: password
authorization endpoint string This is the URL of the authorization endpoint. Grant Type: authorization code
code (read only) string This is the authorization code. Grant Type: authorization code
scope string This specifies the scope of the access request.
use proxy boolean This specifies whether to use a proxy or not.
Proxy Configuration object This specifies the configuration for the proxy. User Proxy: true
only send non-2xx responses to catch node boolean This specifies whether to only catch non-2xx responses.
embedded credentials boolean This specifies whether to include the client credentials in the token request body for authentication purposes.
reject Unauthorized boolean This specifies whether to reject unauthorized requests. The rejectUnauthorized parameter controls SSL/TLS certificate validation for the server, with true enforcing validation and false disabling it.

Note:

  • If running behind a proxy, the standard http_proxy=... environment variable should be set and Node-RED restarted, or use Proxy Configuration. If Proxy Configuration was set, the configuration take precedence over environment variable.
  • The OAuth redirect URL is set by default to /oauth2/redirect, which is the endpoint responsible for receiving the authorization code.

Outputs

Output Description
access_token This is the access token obtained from the OAuth2 server.
expires_in This is the duration of time, in seconds, until the access token expires.
token_type This is the type of the token. For example, "Bearer".
scope This specifies the scope of the access granted by the token obtained.
refresh_token This is the refresh token that can be used to obtain a new access token before the current one expires.

Details

The msg.oauth2Request object contains the OAuth2 request details that are set by the node. The following are the different types of credentials that can be used for authentication:

Client Credentials

The client credentials can be sent as part of the message payload to the node. The msg.oauth2Request.credentials object should contain the following properties:

  • grant_type (string): This specifies the grant type. For dynamic credentials, the value should be set to "client_credentials".
  • client_id (string): This is the client ID of the OAuth2 client.
  • client_secret (string): This is the client secret of the OAuth2 client.
  • scope (string): This specifies the scope of the access requested.

Here's an example:

msg.oauth2Request = {
  access_token_url: "http://localhost:8080/v1/oauth/tokens",
  credentials: {
    grant_type: "client_credentials",
    client_id: "test_client_1",
    client_secret: "test_secret",
    scope: "read_write",
  },
};
return msg;

Password

The username and password can be sent as part of the message payload to the node. The msg.oauth2Request.credentials object should contain the following properties:

  • grant_type (string): This specifies the grant type. For password credentials, the value should be set to "password".
  • client_id (string): This is the client ID of the OAuth2 client.
  • client_secret (string): This is the client secret of the OAuth2 client.
  • scope (string): This specifies the scope of the access requested.
  • username (string): This is the username of the user.
  • password (string): This is the password of the user.

Here's an example:

msg.oauth2Request = {
  access_token_url: "http://localhost:8080/v1/oauth/tokens",
  credentials: {
    grant_type: "password",
    client_id: "test_client_1",
    client_secret: "test_secret",
    scope: "read_write",
    username: "[email protected]",
    password: "test_password",
  },
};
return msg;

refreshToken

A refresh token can be used to obtain a new access token without requiring the user to re-authenticate. The msg.oauth2Request.credentials object should contain the following properties:

  • grant_type (string): This specifies the grant type. For refresh token credentials, the value should be set to "refresh_token".
  • client_id (string): This is the client ID of the OAuth2 client.
  • client_secret (string): This is the client secret of the OAuth2 client.
  • scope (string): This specifies the scope of the access requested.
  • refresh_token (string): This is the refresh token obtained from a previous authentication.

Here's an example:

let refreshToken = global.get("refreshToken");

msg.oauth2Request = {
  access_token_url: "http://localhost:8080/v1/oauth/tokens",
  credentials: {
    grant_type: "refresh_token",
    client_id: "test_client_1",
    client_secret: "test_secret",
    scope: "read_write",
    refresh_token: refreshToken,
  },
};
return msg;
