ArcGIS authentication strategy for Passport.


Passport strategy for authenticating with ArcGIS using the OAuth 2.0 API.

This module lets you authenticate using ArcGIS in your Node.js applications. By plugging into Passport, ArcGIS authentication can be easily and unobtrusively integrated into any application or framework that supports Connect-style middleware, including Express.

$ npm install passport-arcgis

The ArcGIS authentication strategy authenticates users using a ArcGIS account and OAuth 2.0 tokens. The 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.

passport.use(new ArcGISStrategy({
    clientSecret: ARCGIS_CLIENT_SECRET,
    callbackURL: ""
  function(accessToken, refreshToken, profile, done) {
    User.findOrCreate({ username: profile.username }, function (err, user) {
      return done(err, user);

Use passport.authenticate(), specifying the 'arcgis' strategy, to authenticate requests.

For example, as route middleware in an Express application:


  passport.authenticate('arcgis', { failureRedirect: '/login' }),
  function(req, res) {
    // Successful authentication, redirect home.

For a complete, working example, refer to the login example.
