I stumbled on this plugin so I decided to add support for WordPress using Oauth2 Authorization Code.
Not all software comes with Oauth2 support out of the box or with a plugin. Thanks for making this happen.
I first tested it using Postman to make sure I get the desired results. It works like expected.
My goal was getting authentication using Oauth2 and to retrieving member’s avatar for a multiplayer game, texas hold’em precisely.
Luckily, the Authorization Code grant type is not a Pro version.
I also manage to get it working with the code which works like a charm.
The only minor thing I found is the token could contain additional info like userId so I can use it in one pass to call REST API to retrieve the member’s avatar.
I also could not find info on different values for the scope to use along. Basic and Profile scope seem to return the same info, since I was expecting that oauth/me could give me more extended info like avatar.
But, definitely worth checking as Authorization code is the most secure grant type to use. This is the beauty to have WordPress as Oauth Provider is to allow exiting members of a site to use their credentials to login to the game and have their avatar displayed in game. Thus, it exactly meets my needs.
Kudos to the teams!
