Hi folks, Does Supertokens support authorize 3rd-party applications. Auth0 provides a solution for this use case: https://auth0.com/docs/get-started/applications/dynamic-client-registration And there is nothing wrong with it, the only thing that take me back is that the Social Login is only available during trial and your solution is open source!
r
hey @Supreme Commander
Can you give an example of what exactly you want to do?
s
hey
I have a Shopify App who needs to authorize 3rd party clients
It's called Mineshop and is goal is to full fill the gap between Shopify and Minecraft
So I need that Minecraft Server request authorisation to interact with my API
It's all built on NextJs as well as for the Server Side, I was thinking taking advange of the Vercel
The current flow is the follwing:
The store owner installs the app trough the Shopify Markteplace, so I gain information about is shop and the attached user
r
im not familiar with shopify. Can you describe this from a technical point of view?
s
After confirm the installation, the store owner is redirected to the dashboard, and at this point it needs to authorize it's minecraft server
Do you wanna see the auth flow?
r
yea please.
s
I implemented this in NextJs as is described on this diagram!
What I need now is a way to authorize a 3rd party application
r
with supertokens?
right. We are not an oauth provider.
s
No, with Shopify OAuth Library
r
SO if the third party is expecting your app to be an open id / oauth provider, you wll have to use something else on top of supertokens
s
Does your solution does not implement OpenId Connect on top of OAuth 2?
r
yup. Not yet.
we are working on it.. but will be a few months
we do integrate with OAuth providers, but we are not ourselves an OAuth provider.
s
hmm so no way to do this with super tokens
:/
I looked into Auth0 and they have that, but is to expensive just to use social login
Even so I do have a question
How do you exactly do session management I belive this was on supertokens website
s
ahahaah Our firewall as just blocked supertokens website
r
oh damn.. why?
i mean what error does it give?
s
connection reset
r
huh..
thats vague
are you using sophos?
s
watchdogs
r
hmm
s
watchguard sorry
always mixing up the name kkk
r
well, im not sure what we can do about that
s
I am sure it's just a false positive
r
oh yea..
s
watchguard can be too overprotective...
anyway thx for your time
I will be looking forward to hear news from supertokens
r
sounds good!
s
@rp is post login hooks available?
r
yes
which recipe are you using?
s
Social Login + PasswordLess
s

r
