Salla OAuth 2.0 - Passport Strategy

Passport strategy is used with Salla as an authentication middleware module using the OAuth 2.0 API.

Report Bug · Request Feature


This module enables you to implement the authentication process using Salla within your Nodejs applications. By plugging it into Passport, Salla authentication can be quickly and unobtrusively implemented into any application or framework that supports connect-style middleware, including Express.js, by plugging it into Passport.

For more information about Salla's OAuth 2.0 implementation, check our Web API Authorization Guide.

Configure Strategy

Salla authentication strategy authenticates users using a Salla Merchant Account and OAuth 2.0 tokens. This strategy requires a verify callback, which accepts these credentials and calls done providing a user as well as options specifying a client ID, client secret, and callback URL.

const express = require("express");
const passport = require("passport");
const SallaAPIFactory = require("@salla.sa/passport-strategy");
const app = express();

const port = 8081;

// we initialize our Salla API
const SallaAPI = new SallaAPIFactory({
  clientID: "CLIENT_ID", // The client ID assigned to you by Salla in Salla Partner Portal
  clientSecret: "CLIENT_SECRET", // The client password assigned to you by Salla in Salla Partner Portal
  callbackURL: "http://localhost:8081/oauth/callback", // the /oauth/callback in your service

// Use the Salla Strategy within Passport.

// save token and user data to your selected database
SallaAPI.onAuth((accessToken, refreshToken, expires_in, user) => {

  when your user login to your application you can retrieve the access token and use
  it to access the Salla APIs from SallaAPI.setAccessToken   .


// we set salla express middleware
app.use((req, res, next) => SallaAPI.setExpressVerify(req, res, next));

// GET /
// render the index page

app.get("/", function (req, res) {
  res.send({ user: req.user });

// GET /oauth/redirect
//   Use passport.authenticate() as route middleware to authenticate the
//   request. The first step in salla authentication will involve redirecting
//   the user to accounts.salla.sa. After authorization, salla will redirect the user
//   back to this application at /oauth/callback
app.get("/oauth/redirect", passport.authenticate("salla"));

// GET /oauth/callback
//   Use passport.authenticate() as route middleware to authenticate the
//   request. If authentication fails, the user will be redirected back to the
//   login page. Otherwise, the primary route function function will be called,
//   which, in this example, will redirect the user to the home page.
  passport.authenticate("salla", { failureRedirect: "/login" }),
  function (req, res) {

app.listen(port, function () {
  console.log("App is listening on port " + port);

Refreshing a Token

Refresh tokens can be received by calling SallaAPI.refreshToken() function, which returns a Promies.

const SallaAPI = require("@salla.sa/passport-strategy");

  .then(({ accessToken, newRefreshToken }) => {
    // save new access token and refresh token to your database
  .catch((err) => res.send(err));


For a complete, working example, refer to the login example, you can get your keys on Salla Partners > My Applications.

Getting All Orders from the store

app.get("/orders", ensureAuthenticated, async function (req, res) {
  res.render("orders.html", {
    orders: await SallaAPI.getAllOrders(),

Fetching Resources dynamic url

app.get("/customers", ensureAuthenticated, async function (req, res) {
  res.render("orders.html", {
    customers: await SallaAPI.fetchResource({
      url: "https://api.salla.dev/admin/v2/customers",
