DCSOpauthBundle is a Symfony2 bundle that enables support for many authentication providers through the Opauth framework.


a) Download and install DCSOpauthBundle

To install DCSOpauthBundle run the following command

bash $ php composer.phar require damianociarla/opauth-bundle

b) Install Opauth strategy

To install the Opauth strategy, you need find the required package on Packagist or on GitHub and add it to the require list of your project's composer.json file.

This is an example of the Facebook strategy:

bash $ php composer.phar require opauth/facebook

c) Enable the bundle

To enable it add the bundle instance in the kernel:

// app/AppKernel.php

public function registerBundles()
    $bundles = array(
    	// ...
    	new DCS\OpauthBundle\DCSOpauthBundle(),

d) Configure the bundle

Now that you have properly enabled the DCSOpauthBundle, the next step is to configure the bundle to work with the specific needs of your application.

Add the following configuration to your config.yml file according the types of strategies you want to use in your application.

# app/config/config.yml

        # The name of the strategy is personal. es: google, facebook, google_app_2 etc...
            id:             YOUR_CLIENT_ID
            secret:         YOUR_CLIENT_SECRET
            strategy_class: Google

        # Facebook example with option scope
            id:             YOUR_APP_ID
            secret:         YOUR_APP_SECRET
            strategy_class: Facebook
                scope: "email"

For a list of the configurations of the strategies refer to the original configuration of Opauth library.

e) Import DCSOpauthBundle routing files

Now that you have activated and configured the bundle, all that is left to do is import the DCSOpauthBundle routing files:

# app/config/routing.yml

    resource: "@DCSOpauthBundle/Resources/config/routing/connect.xml"
    prefix: /connect

    resource: "@DCSOpauthBundle/Resources/config/routing/response.xml"
    prefix: /connect

How does it work?

DCSOpauthBundle logs on the selected provider and provides a token to use in the user's session.

How to log on the provider?

You must perform a redirect on the route dcs_opauth_connect passing the parameter {provider}

# twig example

<a href="{{ url('dcs_opauth_connect', {'provider' : 'google'}) }}">Login with Google</a>
