Piral ADAL · GitHub License npm version tested with jest Gitter Chat

This is a plugin that only has a peer dependency to piral-core. What piral-adal brings to the table is a direct integration with Azure Active Directory on basis of the MSAL library that can be used with piral or piral-core.

The set includes the getAccessToken API to retrieve the current user's access token.

By default, these Pilet API extensions are not integrated in piral, so you'd need to add them to your Piral instance.


The following functions are brought to the Pilet API.


Gets the currently authenticated user's token or undefined if no user is authenticated.


For authors of pilets

You can use the getAccessToken function from the Pilet API. This returns a promise.

Example use:

import { PiletApi } from '<name-of-piral-instance>';
export async function setup(piral: PiletApi) {
  const userToken = await piral.getAccessToken();
  // do something with userToken

Note that this value may change if the Piral instance supports an "on the fly" login (i.e., a login without redirect / reloading of the page).

Setup and Bootstrapping

For Piral instance developers

The provided library only brings API extensions for pilets to a Piral instance.

For the setup of the library itself you'll need to import createAdalApi from the piral-adal package.

import { createAdalApi } from 'piral-adal';

The integration looks like:

import { createAdalApi, setupAdalClient } from 'piral-adal';
const client = setupAdalClient({ clientId, ... });
const instance = createInstance({
  // important part
  extendApi: [createAdalApi(client)],
  // ...

The separation into setupAdalClient and createAdalApi was done to simplify the standard usage.

Normally, you would want to have different modules here. As an example consider the following code:

// module adal.ts
import { setupAdalClient } from 'piral-adal';
export const client = setupAdalClient({ ... });
// app.ts
import { createAdalApi } from 'piral-adal';
import { client } from './adal';
export function render() {
    // ...
    extendApi: [createAdalApi(client)],
// index.ts
import { client } from './adal';
if (location.pathname !== '/auth') {
  if (client.account()) {
    import('./app').then(({ render }) => render());
  } else {

This way we evaluate the current path and act accordingly. Note that the actually used path may be different for your application.
