In this walkthrough, learn how to easily configure and deploy microservices with Spring Boot, then secure them using Google OAuth and OpenID.

This microservice will use OAuth 2.0 and OpenID Connect to authenticate in Google and get information to the user.

Technology Stack

  • Maven;
  • Spring Boot;
  • Spring Web;
  • Spring Security;
  • OAuth2 authentication;
  • Google OAuth2 configuration.

Before we start on the code, let's configure the Google OAuth 2.0. Let's go to the below URL:

Click on "credentials" and "create credentials."

Then click on "OAuth client ID." It will open a new window with more options.

Clicking on "Web application" will give you more options to create a client ID.

Name your client ID based on your application. In the Authorized JavaScript origins field, enter the origin for your app. You can enter multiple origins to allow for your app to run on different protocols, domains, or subdomains. The Authorized redirect URIs is where the client will get send to after the account authorization is successful. Make sure to provide an exact path and it is case sensitive.

In my project, I have defined the Authorized redirect URI as http://localhost:8080/google/login.

Finally, click on Create button to create your client credentials to get your OAuth 2.0 client ID.

With all above steps, you will get:

1. Client ID

2. Client Secret

You need to use both in your Java project (in the application.yml file).

How to Start the Spring Boot Application

Create a Spring Boot application using:

  • start.spring.io

  • Eclipse STS

Make sure to use JDK 1.8 for Spring Boot. Spring Boot does not support any lower version than JDK 1.8.

A class that can be used to bootstrap and launch a Spring application from a Java main method:

 public class MyApplication  {

   public static void main(String[] args) throws Exception {
     SpringApplication.run(MyApplication.class, args);

Below is an application.yml that you need to configure for OAuth 2.0.

# Spring Boot configuration
    active: googleOAuth
# Spring Security configuration
      clientSecret: xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
      accessTokenUri: https://www.googleapis.com/oauth2/v4/token
      userAuthorizationUri: https://accounts.google.com/o/oauth2/v2/auth
      clientAuthenticationScheme: form
      scope: email
      #scope: https://www.googleapis.com/auth/games
      userInfoUri: https://www.googleapis.com/oauth2/v3/userinfo
      preferTokenInfo: true
# Server configuration
 port: 8080

By the way, you can configure the port of your server using the above yml file.

You can check the complete code in my repository.

If you have any questions, please comment.

I will show you on how to create your own Auth Server and Resource server in the next part of this series.
