Refresh

Source Code

refresh is an extended version of local scheme, made for systems that use token refresh.

You can set scheme to refresh to enable it.

Usage

To do a password based login by sending credentials in request body as a JSON object:

<template>
  <div>
    <form @submit.prevent="userLogin">
      <div>
        <label>Username</label>
        <input type="text" v-model="login.username" />
      </div>
      <div>
        <label>Password</label>
        <input type="text" v-model="login.password" />
      </div>
      <div>
        <button type="submit">Submit</button>
      </div>
    </form>
  </div>
</template>

<script>
export default {
  data() {
    return {
      login: {
        username: '',
        password: ''
      }
    }
  },
  methods: {
    async userLogin() {
      try {
        let response = await this.$auth.loginWith('local', { data: this.login })
        console.log(response)
      } catch (err) {
        console.log(err)
      }
    }
  }
}
</script>

To manually refresh the token:

this.$auth.refreshTokens()

Options

auth: {
  strategies: {
    local: {
      scheme: 'refresh',
      token: {
        property: 'access_token',
        maxAge: 1800,
        // type: 'Bearer'
      },
      refreshToken: {
        property: 'refresh_token',
        data: 'refresh_token',
        maxAge: 60 * 60 * 24 * 30
      },
      user: {
        property: 'user',
       // autoFetch: true
      },
      endpoints: {
        login: { url: '/api/auth/login', method: 'post' },
        refresh: { url: '/api/auth/refresh', method: 'post' },
        user: { url: '/api/auth/user', method: 'get' },
        logout: { url: '/api/auth/logout', method: 'post' }
      },
      // autoLogout: false
    }
  }
}

endpoints

Each endpoint is used to make requests using axios. They are basically extending Axios Request Config.

::: tip To disable each endpoint, simply set it's value to false. :::

token

Here you configure the token options.

property

property can be used to specify which field of the response JSON to be used for value. It can be false to directly use API response or being more complicated like auth.token.

name

  • Default: Authorization

Authorization header name to be used in axios requests.

type

  • Default: Bearer

Authorization header type to be used in axios requests.

maxAge

  • Default: 1800

Here you set the expiration time of the token, in seconds. This time will be used if for some reason we couldn't decode the token to get the expiration date.

By default is set to 30 minutes.

refreshToken

Here you configure the refresh token options.

property

property can be used to specify which field of the response JSON to be used for value. It can be false to directly use API response or being more complicated like auth.refresh_token.

maxAge

  • Default: 60 * 60 * 24 * 30
