20. @RegisteredOAuth2AuthorizedClient

Spring Security allows resolving an access token using @RegisteredOAuth2AuthorizedClient.

[Note] Note

A working example can be found in OAuth 2.0 WebClient WebFlux sample .

After configuring Spring Security for OAuth2 Login or as an OAuth2 Client, an OAuth2AuthorizedClient can be resolved using the following:

Mono<String> explicit(@RegisteredOAuth2AuthorizedClient("client-id") OAuth2AuthorizedClient authorizedClient) {
    // ...

This integrates into Spring Security to provide the following features:

  • Spring Security will automatically refresh expired tokens (if a refresh token is present)
  • If an access token is requested and not present, Spring Security will automatically request the access token.

    • For authorization_code this involves performing the redirect and then replaying the original request
    • For client_credentials the token is simply requested and saved

If the user authenticated using oauth2Login(), then the client-id is optional. For example, the following would work:

Mono<String> implicit(@RegisteredOAuth2AuthorizedClient OAuth2AuthorizedClient authorizedClient) {
    // ...

This is convenient if the user always authenticates with OAuth2 Login and an access token from the same authorization server is needed.
