Social Login Web Flow

Social login with OAuth flow (Web)

Below are the steps how we can use social login with Bridgekeeper API's on Web.

  • User initiates a login request with a desired social network provider as login choice such as google, facebook, linkedin etc.

    • A GET call is needed to be made to /api/auth/v1/login with below query params.
      • auth-provider can be any of service providers like Google, Facebook, Linkedin etc and is required.
      • redirect-url redirect-url is used to redirect to the location given post successful login
  • When the user initiates a login request through ouath, service provider collects all the user credentials such as email, password and collects users consent and post successful validation of creds it return back a valid OAuth token which is required for the further and login and session management.

  • On receiving a valid Oauth token from the service provider Bridgekeeper makes an callback call to procure access token and login via a GET call to/api/auth/v1/:provider/callback On successful callback bridgekeeper returns a access token and sets the qt-auth in cookies and logs in the user.

  • Post successful login we can get the user details via GET /api/auth/v1/users/me as qt-auth is set as cookies it return back the user details with a response code of 200 and user is shown as logged in.

Sample CURLs

Refer to Swagger API docs for more info on API usage.

User Details

curl --request GET  'https://<client-domain>/api/auth/v1/users/me'  


curl --request GET 'https://<client-domain>/api/auth/v1/login?auth-provider=google&redirect-url=<redirect-url>'

Provider Callback

curl --request GET 'https://<client-domain>/api/auth/v1/google/callback?state=<state>โ€™

Social login with OAuth flow (Mobile)

Below are the steps on how to integrate Bridgeekeeper API's for Social Login with OAuth flow.

  1. Users initiate a Social Login from mobile app with any one of google, facebook, linkedin, or apple as a choice.

  2. Depending on the user's selected social login choice he is taken to a screen with entire user credentials for authentication purposes.

  3. Post collecting user credentials the social login provider validates the user credentials and user consent and returns back a token to Mobile app for further login process.

  4. Mobile app initiates a login call to Bridgeekeeper with below API POST call should be made to /api/auth/v1/login/:provider with the body as,

    Provider: google, facebook, linkedin, or apple

    "token": "<value received from social network provider>",
    "set-session": true,
    "user": {
    "first-name": "Jack",
    "last-name": "Reacher"

    The token is required here.

  5. Once the login is successful Bridgeekeeper logs in the user and sets the qt-auth in the cookies.

  6. Post successful login we can get the user details and validate the session via GET call to /api/auth/v1/users/me and user is shown as logged in.
