Usage

Authentication Strategy

Use BlueMix as OAuth2 authentication strategy for Passport. After authenticate using IBM ID, this strategy requires a verify callback which can be used to create/verify an user in your application. Calling done(null, profile) will save user profile from IBM to the current passport session. You can also write anything to the passport session, for example user.

var passport = require('passport')
, BlueMixOAuth2Strategy = require('passport-bluemix').BlueMixOAuth2Strategy;

passport.use('bluemix', new BlueMixOAuth2Strategy({
    authorizationURL : 'https://idaas.ng.bluemix.net/sps/oauth20sp/oauth20/authorize',
    tokenURL : 'https://idaas.ng.bluemix.net/sps/oauth20sp/oauth20/token',
    clientID : 'your_app_client_id',
    scope: 'profile',
    grant_type: 'authorization_code',
    clientSecret : 'your_app_client_secret',
    callbackURL : 'your_callback_url',
    profileURL: 'https://idaas.ng.bluemix.net/idaas/resources/profile.jsp'
}, function(accessToken, refreshToken, profile, done) {
    ... //find or create new user
    return done(null, ...);
}));

Authenticate Requests

Use passport.authenticate(), specifying the 'bluemix' strategy, to authenticate requests.

For example, as route middleware in an Express application:

app.get('/auth/ibm', passport.authenticate('bluemix', {requestedAuthnPolicy: 'http://www.ibm.com/idaas/authnpolicy/basic'}));
app.get('/auth/ibm/callback', 
        passport.authenticate('bluemix'),
        function(req, res) {
        // Successful authentication, redirect home.
        res.redirect('/');
});
