Passport strategy for acuity authentication.

This module lets you authenticate with Acuity in your Node.js applications. By plugging into Passport, Acuity authentication can be easily and unobtrusively integrated into any application or framework that supports Connect-style middleware, including Express.


    $ npm install @nimblr/passport-acuity


Create an Application

Before using passport-acuity, you must register an OAuth2 application with Acuity. Your application will be issued a client ID and a client secret. These are required in order to authenticate your app with Acuity. You will also need to register your different redirect URIs authorized for your application. Visit the Acuity OAuth2 tutorial for more information.

Configure Strategy

The acuity authentication strategy authenticates users using an Acuity account and OAuth 2.0 tokens. The client ID and secret are obtained when you register your application with Acuity.

The strategy requires a verify callback which receives the access token, an optional refresh token, a profile with the authenticated user information, and a callback. The verify callback must call the passed callback with the user information to complete the authentication process.

    var AcuityOAuth2Strategy = require('@nimblr/passport-acuity-oauth2').Strategy

    passport.use(new AcuityOAuth2Strategy({
            clientID: 'abcdefgxs023934',
            clientSecret: 'assdfco09sdXDAdg9cxaaSASDF90asdgf0asdvc',
            callbackURL: ''
        function(accessToken, credentials, profile, cb) {
            User.findOrCreate(..., function (err, user) {
                done(err, user);

The verify callback can be supplied with the request object by setting the passReqToCallback option to true, and changing the callback arguments accordingly.

    passport.use(new AcuityOAuth2Strategy({
            clientID: 'abcdefgxs023934',
            clientSecret: 'assdfco09sdXDAdg9cxaaSASDF90asdgf0asdvc',
            callbackURL: '',
            passReqToCallback: true
        function(req, accessToken, credentials, profile, cb) {
            // ...

Authenticate Requests

Use passport.authenticate(), specifying the 'acuity-oauth2' strategy, to pass authentication of a request.

For example, as route middleware in an Express application:'/auth/acuity',
      passport.authenticate('acuity-oauth2', { 
        clientID: CLIENT_ID, 
        clientSecret: CLIENT_SECRET, 
        callbackURL: REDIRECT_URI }));'/auth/acuity/callback', 
      passport.authenticate('acuity-oauth2', { /* credentials */ }),
      function(req, res) {
        // Successful authentication, redirect home.
