Coldbox Module to allow Social Login via LinkedIn

Setup & Installation

Add the following structure to Coldbox.cfc

linkedin = {
    oauth = {
        redirectURL         = "{{your_redirect_url_when_linkedin_returns_user}}",
        loginSuccess        = "login.success",
        loginFailure        = "login.failure",
        apiKey              = "{{linkedin_provided_api_key}}",
        apiSecret           = "{{linkedin_provided_api_secret}}",
        oauthToken          = "{{linkedin_provided_oauth_token}}",
        oauthSecret         = "{{linkedin_provided_oauth_secret}}",
        scope               = "r_fullprofile r_emailaddress r_contactinfo w_share r_basicprofile",
        responseType        = "code",
        grantType           = "authorization_code"
    }
},

Interception Point

If you want to capture any data from a successful login, use the interception point linkedInLoginSuccess. Inside the interceptData structure will contain all the provided data from linkedIn for the specific user.

An example interception could look like this

component {

    function linkedInLoginSuccess(event,interceptData){
        var queryService = new query(sql="SELECT roles,email,password FROM user WHERE linkedinUserID = :id;");
            queryService.addParam(name="id",value=interceptData['user_id']);
        var lookup = queryService.execute().getResult();

        if( lookup.recordCount ){
            login {
                loginuser name=lookup.email password=lookup.password roles=lookup.roles;
            };
        }else{
            // create new user
        }

    }
}
