    passport-visualstudio Build Status

    Passport strategy for authenticating with Visual Studio Online using the OAuth 2.0 API.

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


    $ npm install passport-visualstudio


    Create an Application

    Before using passport-visualstudio, you must register an application with Visual Studio Online. If you have not already done so, a new application can be created at Visual Studio Extensions. Your application will be issued an app ID and app secret, which need to be provided to the strategy. You will also need to configure a redirect URI which matches the route in your application.

    Configure Strategy

    The VisualStudio authentication strategy authenticates users using a VisualStudio account and OAuth 2.0 tokens. The app ID and secret obtained when creating an application are supplied as options when creating the strategy. The strategy also requires a verify callback, which receives the access token and optional refresh token, as well as profile which contains the authenticated user's Facebook profile. The verify callback must call cb providing a user to complete authentication.

    passport.use(new VisualStudioStrategy({
        clientID: VSO_APP_ID,
        clientSecret: VSO_APP_SECRET,
        callbackURL: "https://localhost:3000/auth/visualstudio/callback"
      function(accessToken, refreshToken, profile, cb) {
        User.findOrCreate({ visualStudioId: }, function (err, user) {
          return cb(err, user);

    Authenticate Requests

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

    For example, as route middleware in an Express application:

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


    npm i passport-visualstudio
