ForgeRock Developer Experience

Step 4. Run the embedded login sample app

In the following procedure, you run the sample app that you configured in the previous step. The sample connects to your ForgeRock server and walks through the authentication journey you created in an earlier step.

After successful authentication, the sample obtains an OAuth 2.0 access token and displays the related user information.

To run the UI Sample

  1. In a terminal window, navigate to the root of your sdk-sample-apps project.

  2. To run the embedded login sample, enter the following:

    npm run start:embedded-login
  3. In a web browser:

    1. Ensure you are NOT currently logged into the ForgeRock server instance.

      If you are logged into the AM instance in the browser, the sample will not work. Logout of the AM instance before you run the sample.
    2. Navigate to the following URL:

      A form appears with "Username" and "Password" fields, as defined by the page node in the sdkUsernamePasswordJourney you created in a previous step:

      Running the app
    3. Authenticate as a non-administrative user, and click Sign In.

      Default login credentials:

      • "Username" - demo

      • "Password" - Ch4ng3it!

        If the app displays the user information, authentication was successful:

        Successful OAuth 2.0 authentication
        To see the application calling the authorize and authenticate endpoints, open the Network tab of your browser’s developer tools.
  4. To revoke the OAuth 2.0 token, click the Sign Out button.

    The application calls the endSession endpoint to revoke the OAuth 2.0 token, and returns to the sign-in form.



You have now used the ForgeRock JavaScript SDK to authenticate to a ForgeRock server instance.

You have seen how to obtain OAuth 2.0 tokens, view the related user information, and log a user out of the server.
