ArcGIS Runtime SDK for Java


Demonstrates how to use the OAuth 2.0 protocol for authentication into the ArcGIS platform. Once authenticated, the sample displays the user's profile information.

How it works

To authenticate into the ArcGIS platform:

  1. Setup an OAuthConfiguration with the settings of an application registered in the ArcGIS platform.
  2. Setup an AuthenticationChallengeHandler that challenges the user for authentication. You could create a custom handler similar to the one created in this sample: OAuthChallengeHandler.
  3. On trying to access a secured resource, the authentication challenge in invoked.
  4. OAuthChallengeHandler directs the user to a sign-in page (using a WebView) from ArcGIS platform.
  5. On successful sign-in, the ArcGIS platform provides an authorization code.
  6. Use the authorization code to create a OAuthTokenCredentialRequest. This will be used by the Runtime to request an access token. The access token is then used to request a secured resource in the ArcGIS platform.
