Deploying the Sample Applications

This topic provides instructions on how to download and deploy the sample application used while trying out sample use cases in WSO2 Identity Server.

Before you begin

Download Apache Tomcat 8.x from here and install. Tomcat server installation location will be referred as <TOMCAT_HOME> later in this guide.

Note

It is recommended that you use a hostname that is not localhost to avoid browser errors. Modify the /etc/hosts entry in your machine to reflect this. Note that localhost is used in this documentation as an example, but you must modify this when configuring the authenticators or connectors with this sample application.

Deploying the Travelocity webapp

Before you begin

Install Apache Tomcat 8.x as explained in the beginning of this document.

Download the sample

To be able to deploy a WSO2 Identity Server sample, you need to download it onto your machine first.

Follow the instructions below to download a sample from GitHub.

  1. Navigate to WSO2 Identity Server Samples.
  2. Download the travelocity.com.war file from the latest release assets.

Deploy the sample web application

Deploy this sample web app on a web container.

  1. Copy the travelocity.com.warfile into the webapps folder. For example, <TOMCAT_HOME>/apache-tomcat-<version>/webapps

  2. Open a terminal window and add the following entry to the /etc/hosts file of your machine to configure the hostname.

    127.0.0.1   wso2is.local
    127.0.0.1   localhost.com

    Why is this step needed?

    Some browsers do not allow you to create cookies for a naked hostname, such as localhost. Cookies are required when working with SSO . Therefore, to ensure that the SSO capabilities work as expected in this tutorial, you need to configure the etc/host file as explained in this step.

    The etc/host file is a read-only file. Therefore, you won't be able to edit it by opening the file via a text editor. Instead, edit the file using the terminal commands.
    For example, use the following command if you are working on a Mac/Linux environment.

    sudo nano /etc/hosts
  3. Open the travelocity.properties file found in the <TOMCAT_HOME>/webapps/travelocity.com/WEB-INF/classes directory and configure the following property with the hostname ( wso2is.local ) that you configured above. Finally restart the tomcat server.

    #The URL of the SAML 2.0 Assertion Consumer
    SAML2.AssertionConsumerURL=http://wso2is.local:8080/travelocity.com/home.jsp
  4. Start the Tomcat server.

To check the sample application, navigate to http://<TOMCAT_HOST>:<TOMCAT_PORT>/travelocity.com/index.jsp on your browser.

For example, http://wso2is.local:8080/travelocity.com/index.jsp

Tip

If you wish to change properties like the issuer ID, consumer URL, and IdP URL, you can edit the travelocity.properties file found in the travelocity.com/WEB-INF/classes directory. Also if the service provider is configured in a tenant you can use "QueryParams" property to send the tenant domain.For example, "QueryParams=tenantDomain=wso2.com".

This sample uses the following default values.

Properties Description
SAML2.SPEntityId=travelocity.com A unique identifier for this SAML 2.0 Service Provider application
SAML2.AssertionConsumerURL= http://wso2is.local:8080/travelocity.com/home.jsp The URL of the SAML 2.0 Assertion Consumer
SAML2.IdPURL= https://localhost:9443/samlsso The URL of the SAML 2.0 Identity Provider
SAML2.IsPassiveAuthn=true Set this to send SAML2 passive authentication requests

If you edit the travelocity.properties file, you must restart the Apache Tomcat server for the changes to take effect.

Configuring the service provider

The next step is to configure the service provider.

  1. Return to the WSO2 IS management console.

  2. Navigate to Main>Identity>Service Providers and click Add.

  3. Enter travelocity.com in the Service Provider Name text box, and click Register.

  4. In the Inbound Authentication Configuration section, click Configure under the SAML2 Web SSO Configuration section.

    1. Now set the configurations as follows:

      1. Issuer : travelocity.com

      2. Assertion Consumer URL : http://wso2is.local:8080/travelocity.com/home.jsp
        Click Yes, in the message that appears.

    2. Select the following check-boxes:

      1. Enable Response Signing

      2. Enable Single Logout

      3. Enable Attribute Profile

      4. Include Attributes in the Response Always

      5. Enable Signature Validation in Authentication Requests and Logout Requests

    edit-service-provider

    Tip

Deploying the Playground2 webapp

Before you begin

Install Apache Tomcat 8.x as explained in the beginning of this document.

Download the sample

To be able to deploy a WSO2 Identity Server sample, you need to download it onto your machine first.

Follow the instructions below to download a sample from GitHub.

  1. Navigate to WSO2 Identity Server Samples.
  2. Download the playground2.war file from the latest release assets.

Deploy the sample web app

Deploy this sample web app on a web container.

  1. Copy the the playground2.war file from the latest release assets. file into the webapps folder. For example, <TOMCAT_HOME>/apache-tomcat-<version>/webapps .
  2. Start the Tomcat server.

Note

To check the sample application, navigate to http://<TOMCAT_HOST>:<TOMCAT_PORT>/playground2/oauth2.jsp on your browser.

For example, http://localhost:8080/playground2/oauth2.jsp

  1. Make sure to update the param-value parameter in the WEB-INF/web.xml file with the server URL of the Identity Server if required.
    Make sure to enter the port the application is running on, in the URL. If you have started the Identity Server with a port off set, then the respective port needs to be configured here.

    <init-param>
        <description>serverUrl</description>
        <param-name>serverUrl</param-name>
        <param-value>https://localhost:9443/services/</param-value>
    </init-param>

    Info

    Note that localhost is the server that hosts WSO2 Identity Server and 9443 is the default SSL port of it. Since playground application is accessing the admin service OAuth2TokenValidationService, you should have the correct serverUrl, username and password.

  2. Update param-value parameter with credentials of an admin user if required.

    <init-param>
        <description>userName</description>
        <param-name>userName</param-name>
        <param-value>admin</param-value>
    </init-param>
    <init-param>
        <description>password</description>
        <param-name>password</param-name>
        <param-value>admin</param-value>
    </init-param>
  3. Restart Apache Tomcat and access http://wso2is.local:8080/playground2/
    By default Tomcat runs on port 8080. If you have configured it to run on a different port make sure to update the URL and access the playground application.
    You are directed to the landing page of the sample application. Click on Import Photos and the following page appears.

Are you getting the error that is given below?

javax.net.ssl.SSLHandshakeException: sun.security.validator.ValidatorException: PKIX path building failed:          sun.security.provider.certpath.SunCertPathBuilderException: unable to find valid certification path to requested target
The sample applications do not have a keystore in them. Therefore, after changing the tomcat hostname you might get this error because the public key of the WSO2 Identity Server does not exist in the Java certificate store.

Configuring the service provider

The next step is to configure the service provider.

  1. Return to the WSO2 IS management console.

  2. Navigate to Main>Identity>Service Providers and click Add.

  3. Enter playground2 in the Service Provider Name text box, and click Register.

  4. Expand the Inbound Authentication Configuration section and then the OAuth/OpenID Connect Configuration and click Configure.

  5. Fill in the form that appears. For the Allowed Grant Types, you can disable the ones you do not require or block.

    Note

    The grant type highlighted below is a custom grant type. This will only appear on the UI if you have configured the JWT grant type. The value specified as the name of the oauth.custom_grant_type in the deployment.toml file when creating the custom grant type is the value that will appear on the UI. For more information on writing a custom grant type, see Writing a Custom OAuth 2.0 Grant Type.

  6. Fill the Callback Url field.

    Example : http://wso2is.local:8080/playground2/oauth2client

    configure-oauth-oidc

    Tip
