passport-zendesk

Zendesk OAuth2 strategy for Passport.

Install

$ npm install passport-zendesk

Usage

Configuration

var passport = require('passport');
var ZendeskStrategy = require('passport-zendesk').Strategy;

passport.use(new ZendeskStrategy({
    subdomain: 'yourZendeskSubdomain',
    clientID: 'yourClientIdentifier',
    clientSecret: 'yourClientSecret'
    callbackURL: 'https://www.example.net/auth/zendesk/callback',
  },
  function(accessToken, refreshToken, profile, done) {
    User.findOrCreate(..., function (err, user) {
      done(err, user);
    });
  }
));

Authenticate Requests

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

For example, as route middleware in an Express application:

app.get('/auth/zendesk',
  passport.authenticate('zendesk'));

app.get('/auth/zendesk/callback',
  passport.authenticate('zendesk', { failureRedirect: '/login' }),
  function(req, res) {
    // Successful authentication, redirect home.
    res.redirect('/');
  });

Using a Global Zendesk OAuth Client

If you've set up a global Zendesk OAuth Client and you wish to authenticate with multiple Zendesk subdomains, passport-zendesk will look for a subdomain parameter in the query string and the post body. Using the configuraiton specified above, a login link for example.zendesk.com would look like this:

<a href="/auth/zendesk?subdomain=example">Login with example.zendesk.com</a>

You may also specify the subdomain explicitly in the authenticate() options:

app.get('/auth/zendesk',
  passport.authenticate('zendesk', { subdomain: 'example'}));

Examples
