oauth2 custom error message

oauth2 with laravel

oauth2 is a service that is mostly used for api authentication.Let know a short note about oauth2.OAuth 2 is an authorization framework that enables applications to obtain limited access to user accounts on an HTTP service, such as Facebook, GitHub, and DigitalOcean.Like we want to build an api based application,that time we have a think that how can we authenticate our customer to our application with a very secure layer.For that oauth2 is a great solution.As a fan of laravel here i show how to we use oauth2 in our most recent laravel 5.2 application.For that first need to add oauth2 package in our project’s composer.json

Require oauth2 package in composer.json

"lucadegasperi/oauth2-server-laravel": "5.1.*"

Here is the packgist and github url for oauth2

After that we have to download it in our project directory.So run

composer update

and then it will download in vendor folder.

Then open app/config.php file and add those line in $providers array


and also keep this line in $aliases array

'Authorizer' => LucaDegasperi\OAuth2Server\Facades\Authorizer::class,

Now time do something in middleware,so open app/Http/Kernel.php and add the following line in $middleware array


and add those in $routemiddleware array

'oauth' => \LucaDegasperi\OAuth2Server\Middleware\OAuthMiddleware::class,
'oauth-user' => \LucaDegasperi\OAuth2Server\Middleware\OAuthUserOwnerMiddleware::class,
'oauth-client' => \LucaDegasperi\OAuth2Server\Middleware\OAuthClientOwnerMiddleware::class,
'check-authorization-params' => \LucaDegasperi\OAuth2Server\Middleware\CheckAuthCodeRequestMiddleware::class,
'csrf' => App\Http\Middleware\VerifyCsrfToken::class,

After doing those your app/Http/Kernal.php file will like this

Then change .env file by giving database credential then run from your terminal

php artisan vendor:publish


php artisan migrate


php artisan make:auth

after that do a user registration form browser as usual.

Then open app\config\oauth2.php and change $grant_type array like below

Please follow that here we use a class PasswordGrantVerifier so create a class PasswordGrantVerifier and put those line

Then open app\http\Route.php file and put below line

Then insert a new record in oauth_client table for that execute below line in mysql

INSERT INTO `oauth_clients` (`id`, `secret`, `name`, `created_at`, `updated_at`) VALUES
(‘f3d259ddd3ed8ff3843839b’, ‘4c7f6f8fa93d59c45502c0ae8c4a95b’, ‘Main website’, ‘2015–05–12 21:00:00’, ‘0000–00–00 00:00:00’);

Now all are finished and time to check oauth2 authentication.In chrome a great extension postman has to check rest request.Here i gave an example to use that.
