Accessing the Rest Api (Without secure)

Open the rest api client (ex : Postman, RestClient... ) , access the below urls

open routes/web.php

and you will see the following routes

Route::get('/myprofile', "RestController@MyProfile");

Route::get('/employeelist', "RestController@EmployeeList");

Route::get('/holidaylist', "RestController@HolidayList");

Route::get('/localholidaylist', "RestController@LocalHolidayList");

Route::get('/leavetype', "RestController@LeaveType");

and if you look at the RestController , it just returning JSONs

This will listion the endpoint in 8000 port,

  1. http://localhost:8000/myprofile

  2. http://localhost:8000/employeelist

  3. http://localhost:8000/holidaylist

You must see employee JSONs

In the sample project, open /app/Http/Kernal.php and register the middleware

Require the Interceptor.php
require(base_path() . "/vendor/cidaas/cidaas-interceptor/lib/Interceptor.php");
Add the interceptor in the route Middleware array.

'cidaas'=> \cidaas\interceptor\lib\Interceptor::class
After adding
 protected $routeMiddleware = [
        'auth' => \Illuminate\Auth\Middleware\Authenticate::class,
        'auth.basic' => \Illuminate\Auth\Middleware\AuthenticateWithBasicAuth::class,
        'bindings' => \Illuminate\Routing\Middleware\SubstituteBindings::class,
        'can' => \Illuminate\Auth\Middleware\Authorize::class,
        'guest' => \App\Http\Middleware\RedirectIfAuthenticated::class,

To Generate Access Token

Use our OAuth2 Client Library to get access token from Cidaas

Access the secured rest API with access token

Cidaas interceptor expecting the client to pass the access token in all the requests, in the header or query string with the key of access_token or in the authorization header with bearer token Sample Request

curl -X GET \
http://localhost:8000/employeelist \
-H 'access_token: eyJ0eXAiOiJKV1QiLCJhbGciOiJIUzI1NiJ9.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.l6dTmkpRjyBe6azSpwHM32q-ZUKr5_yrx53uxZ1PE0w'
