botauth is authentication middleware for bots built using the botframework and nodejs. botauth is leverages passportjs authentication strategies to help bot developers connect to 3rd party oauth providers. You can use botauth to connect your bot's users to their Facebook, Dropbox, or any other API protected by OAuth 2.0.
botauth is available as an npm package
npm install --save botauth
Create a BotAuthenticator object to configure authentication for your bot.
const botauth = ;const DropboxOAuth2Strategy = Strategy;...// Initialize with the strategies we want to usevar auth = server botsecret : "something secret"baseUrl : "https://" + WEBSITE_HOSTNAME;// Configure the Dropbox authentication provider using the passport-dropbox strategyauth;
Use the authenticate method to make sure that the user has authenticated with a OAuth provider before continuing the dialog waterfall steps. botauth puts the user profile from the passport strategy in
session.userData.botauth. authenticate returns an array of dialog steps which can be combined with your own dialog steps. Anything after authenticate will only be reached if the user successfully authenticates.
