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 script to generate a custom server token, which will then be passed to the Web SDK incorporated in the client code.

const userManagement = catalystApp.userManagement(); userManagement.generateCustomToken({ type:'web', user_details:{ email_id: "${email_id}", first_name: "${first_name}", last_name: "${last_name}", org_id: "${org_id}", phone_number: "${phone_number}", country_code: "${country_code}", role_name: "${role_name}" } });

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.
