Request School Authorization

There is more information available on our developer documentation site. Note: The redirectUri must match the uri defined in the application settings on the Assmebly Platform.

  $provider = new \Assembly\Client\Auth\AssemblyAuth([
    'redirectUri' => '',

  $state = ''; // Set a state value that will be link to s chool in your data store.
  $authorizationUrl = $provider->getAuthorizationUrl([
  'scope'      => ['school:required'], // Add additional scopes are required
	'state' => $state

  //SaveSateToDataStore is a implementation placeholder which should be replace with your own data storage process.

  // Redirect the user to the authorization URL.
  header('Location: ' . $authorizationUrl);

Handle School Authorization Callback


  $provider = new \Assembly\Client\Auth\AssemblyAuth([
    'redirectUri' => '',

  //GetStateFromDataStore is a implementation placeholder which should be replace with your own data retrieval process.
  $state = GetStateFromDataStore();

  if (empty($_GET['state']) || (empty($state) && $_GET['state'] !== $state)) {
    exit('Invalid state');

  // Try to get an access token using the authorization code grant.
  $accessToken = $provider->getAccessToken('authorization_code', [
    'code' => $_GET['code']

  // We have an access token, which we may use in authenticated requests against the service provider's API.
  echo 'Access Token: ' . $accessToken->getToken() . "<br>";
  echo 'Refresh Token: ' . $accessToken->getRefreshToken() . "<br>";
  echo 'Expired in: ' . $accessToken->getExpires() . "<br>";
  echo 'Already expired? ' . ($accessToken->hasExpired() ? 'expired' : 'not expired') . "<br>";

  //SaveTokenToDatastore is a implementation placeholder which should be replace with your own data storage process.

  $accessToken->jsonSerialize() will return the following
