Generate a Custom Server Token

Cloud Scale’s Authentication component allows you to implement a third-party authentication service of your preference for your Catalyst application. The authorization and validation of the end-user is handled by the third-party service, and the data is passed on to Catalyst.

  • Since you are implementing a third-party authentication service, it is understood that the security infrastructure of your application is contingent on the efficiency of the third-party service that you have chosen.
  • To enable a third-party authentication in your Catalyst application, you must ensure that you have enabled Public Signup in the console.

When a user is re-directed from a third-party service after being authenticated, their credentials must be passed to an authentication function that you code. This function must include the Catalyst server-side logic to generate a custom server token, which will then be passed to the Web SDK incorporated in the client code.

A sample code to generate a custom server token is given below:

ZCCustomTokenDetails customTokenDetails = ZCCustomTokenDetails.getInstance(); ZCCustomTokenUserDetails tokenUserDetails = ZCCustomTokenUserDetails.getInstance(); //Set token user details tokenUserDetails.setEmailId(""); tokenUserDetails.setFirstName("Amelia"); tokenUserDetails.setLastName("Burrows"); tokenUserDetails.setRoleName("App Admin"); customTokenDetails.setUserDetails(tokenUserDetails); ZCCustomTokenResponse customTokenResp = ZCUser.getInstance().generateCustomToken(customTokenDetails);

You can now pass this token to the client logic as explained in this Web SDK help page.

Note: The custom server token will have to be generated every single time the user logs in to your application using a third-party authentication service.
