SDK Java v2.x

login #

Login a user using a specified strategy and their credentials.

If the Kuzzle response contains a JWT Token, the Kuzzle SDK token is set and the loginAttempt event is fired immediately with the following object: { success: true } This is the case, for instance, with the local authentication strategy.

If the request succeeds but there is no token, then it means that the chosen strategy is a two-steps authentication method, such as the OAUTH strategy. In that case, the loginAttempt event is not fired. To complete the login, the setJwtToken method must be called either with a token or with an appropriate Kuzzle response.

If the login attempt fails, the loginAttempt event is fired with the following response: { success: false, error: 'error message' }

This method is non-queuable, meaning that during offline mode, it will be discarded and the callback will be called with an error.

login(strategy, [credentials], [expiresIn], [callback]) #

Arguments Type Description
strategy string Authentication strategy (local, facebook, github, ...)
credentials JSON object Optional login credentials, depending on the strategy
expiresIn varies Login expiration time
callback function Optional callback handling the response

Note: If the expiresIn argument is not set, the default token expiration value will be taken from the Kuzzle server configuration.

By default, Kuzzle comes with the kuzzle-plugin-auth-passport-local plugin, which provides the local authentication strategy. This strategy requires a username and password as credentials

Callback Response #

Returns a JSON object containing the Kuzzle response.
