Try Implicit Grant

The Implicit Grant is one of the four grant types in the OAuth 2.0 specification. For more information about this grant type, see Implicit Grant.

Running the application

Before you begin

You must first set up the playground sample webapp. in order to try the following scenario.

  1. Visit the URL http://wso2is.local:8080/playground2/oauth2.jsp to start the application.
  2. Enter the following details and click Authorize.

    Authorization Grant Type: Implicit
    Client ID: (the client id received at the application registration)
    Callback URL: http://wso2is.local:8080/playground2/oauth2client
    Authorize Endpoint: https://localhost:9443/oauth2/authorize



    The playground application will send a authorization request the authorize endpoint of the WSO2 Identity Server using the following format.



  3. Log in with the user.

  4. Click Approve to consent to this action.

  5. At this point the application receives the Access Token. Enter the introspection endpoint (i.e, https://localhost:9443/oauth2/introspect ) and click Get TokenInfo to get the token information.

    OAuth 2.0 Token Introspection defines a protocol that allows authorized protected resources to query the authorization server to determine the set of metadata for a given token that was presented to them by an OAuth Client. This metadata includes whether or not the token is currently active (or if it has expired or otherwise been revoked), what rights of access the token carries (usually conveyed through OAuth 2.0 scopes), and the authorization context in which the token was granted (including who authorized the token and which client it was issued to). Token introspection allows a protected resource to query this information regardless of whether or not it is carried in the token itself, allowing this method to be used along with or independently of structured token values.

  6. Now you should be able to see the access token information as seen below, as long as the provided access token is valid.
