Configuring REST Client for Spring

This tutorial shows the way internet banking (or other similar application) developers integrate with PowerAuth Server using a REST client.

Prerequisites For the Tutorial

  • Running PowerAuth Server with available REST interface.
  • Knowledge of web applications based on Spring Framework.
  • Software: IDE, Application Server (Tomcat, Wildfly…)

Integration Manual

Add a Maven Dependency

To add a PowerAuth REST client support in your application, add Maven dependency for PowerAuth REST client module in your pom.xml file:

<dependency>
    <groupId>io.getlime.security</groupId>
    <artifactId>powerauth-rest-client-spring</artifactId>
    <version>${powerauth.version}</version>
</dependency>

Configure PowerAuth REST Client

In order to connect to the correct PowerAuth Server, you need to add following configuration:

@Configuration
@ComponentScan(basePackages = {"com.wultra.security.powerauth"})
public class PowerAuthClientConfiguration {

    @Value("${powerauth.rest.url}")
    private String powerAuthRestUrl;

    @Bean
    public PowerAuthClient powerAuthRestClient() {
        return new PowerAuthRestClient(powerAuthRestUrl);
    }

}

In case you need to configure the client, use:

    @Bean
    public PowerAuthRestClient powerAuthRestClient() {
        PowerAuthRestClientConfiguration config = new PowerAuthRestClientConfiguration();
        config.setConnectTimeout(3000);
        ...
        return new PowerAuthRestClient(powerAuthRestUrl, config);
    }

The following REST client options are available:

  • maxMemorySize - configures maximum memory size per request, default 1 MB
  • connectTimeout - configures connection timeout, default 5000 ms
  • proxyEnabled - enables proxy, disabled by default
  • proxyHost - proxy hostname or IP address
  • proxyPort - proxy server port
  • proxyUsername - proxy username in case proxy authentication is required
  • proxyPassword - proxy password in case proxy authentication is required
  • powerAuthClientToken - client token for PowerAuth server authentication, used in case authentication is enabled on PowerAuth server
  • powerAuthClientSecret - client secret for PowerAuth server authentication, used in case authentication is enabled on PowerAuth server
  • acceptInvalidSslCertificate - whether SSL certificates should be validated, used during development

Using the PowerAuth REST Client

In order to use a PowerAuthServiceClient instance, you can easily @Autowire it in your class, for example in your Spring MVC @Controller, like this:

@Controller
@RequestMapping(value = "ib/settings")
public class AuthenticationController {

    @Autowired
    public void setPowerAuthClient(PowerAuthClient powerAuthClient) {
        this.powerAuthClient = powerAuthClient;
    }

}
