Either run

php composer.phar require --prefer-dist macfly/yii2-oauth2-server "*"

or add

"macfly/yii2-oauth2-server": "*"

to the require section of your composer.json.

To use this extension, simply add the following code in your application configuration as a new module:

    //other modules .....
    'oauth2' => [
        'class' => 'macfly\oauth2server\Module',
        'tokenParamName' => 'accessToken',
        'tokenAccessLifetime' => 3600 * 24, // Default token lifetime
        'userModel' => 'app\models\User',
        'userAttributes' => [ // List of user attributes you want to provide through the /oauth2/user api call
    // yii2-oauth2-server is using the kartik\datecontrol\Module so you should define the configuration of the module
    // See more details at
    'datecontrol' =>  [
        'class'             => 'kartik\datecontrol\Module',
        'ajaxConversion'    => true,
        'autoWidget'        => true,
        'saveTimezone'      => 'UTC',

Can be usefull to enable in requet component the json parser and pretty url.

Also, extend app\models\User - user model - implementing the interface \OAuth2\Storage\UserCredentialsInterface, so the oauth2 credentials data stored in user table.

You should implement (for convenience a trait is provide):

  • findIdentityByAccessToken()
  • checkUserCredentials()
  • getUserDetails()
  • getAuthKey()
  • getOauthClient() mapping of one user to one oauth client.

You can extend the model if you prefer it (please, remember to update the config files) :

use Yii;

class User extends app\models\User implements \OAuth2\Storage\UserCredentialsInterface
	use \macfly\oauth2server\traits\Oauth2User;

The next step you should run migration

yii migrate --migrationPath=@vendor/macfly/yii2-oauth2-server/src/migrations

this migration create the oauth2 database scheme and insert test user credentials testclient:testpass for
