I would like to build an authenticator that works with Onshape. However, Onshape only allows the token request to be sent with a url encoded POST body, whereas it seems that the generic oauthenticator implementation sends the token request in a JSON body. Does the generic implementation support url encoded requests and I’m just missing it? Clarification on the oauth flow can be found here: https://dev-portal.onshape.com/help
This is definitely a case that generic oauthenticator is meant to cover. GenericOAuthenticator sends the token request as a url-encoded body of a POST. It then follows up this request with a GET using the token to identify the user.
Unfortunately, I can’t read that onshape doc without creating an onshape account, so I’m not sure how exactly their request flow works.
- redirect to oauth provider
- provider redirects back to callback_url with code in url params
- POST to provider token_url with code in POST body params and
- parse result as JSON, extracting
- GET request to userdata_url to retrieve the user model with the access token in
Authorization: Bearer <token>header
- get username from JSON reply in the field
