Overview

Passport Atlassian OAuth

Passport strategy for authenticating with Atlassian Applications using the OAuth 1.0 API.

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

Installation

$ npm install passport-atlassian-oauth

Usage

Configure Strategy

The Atlassian OAuth authentication strategy authenticates users using an Atlassian Application account and OAuth 1.0 tokens. The strategy requires a verify callback, which accepts these credentials and calls done providing a user, as well as options specifying a applicationURL, consumerKey, and callback URL.

passport.use(new AtlassianOAuthStrategy({
        applicationURL:"http://localhost:2990/jira",
        callbackURL:"http://localhost:5000/auth/atlassian-oauth/callback",
        consumerKey:"atlassian-oauth-sample",
        consumerSecret:"<RSA private key>",
  },
  function(token, tokenSecret, profile, done) {
    User.findOrCreate({ userid: profile.id }, function (err, user) {
      return done(err, user);
    });
  }
));

Authenticate Requests

Use passport.authenticate(), specifying the 'atlassian-oauth' strategy, to authenticate requests.

For example, as route middleware in an Express application:

app.get('/auth/atlassian-oauth',
    passport.authenticate('atlassian-oauth'),
    function (req, res) {
        // The request will be redirected to the Atlassian app for authentication, so this
        // function will not be called.
    });

app.get('/auth/atlassian-oauth/callback',
    passport.authenticate('atlassian-oauth', { failureRedirect:'/login' }),
    function (req, res) {
        res.redirect('/');
    });

Atlassian Application Setup

Configure an application link in the Atlassian Application pointing back to your NodeJS app.

In this application link configure OAuth Authentication for incoming authentication. Set the consumer key to the same value that you used in your AtlassianOAuthStrategy. Provide a matching RSA public key for the private key in use in your NodeJS application and finally configure a callback url that will redirect to <NodeJS base URL>/auth/atlassian-oauth/callback (given the example above).

Examples

For a complete, working example, refer to the login example.

Issues

Currently this implementation only works with JIRA. Unfortunately there isn't yet an Atlassian cross-product API to retrieve user details to populate the passport profile that's the same in all applications. Other Atlassian applications may be added at a later date (changing the REST calls in strategy.js userProfile()).
