2. Authorization Server

To create an Authorization Server and grant access tokens you need to use @EnableAuthorizationServer and provide security.oauth2.client.client-id and security.oauth2.client.client-secret] properties. The client will be registered for you in an in-memory repository.

Having done that you will be able to use the client credentials to create an access token, for example:

$ curl client:[email protected]:8080/oauth/token -d grant_type=password -d username=user -d password=pwd

The basic auth credentials for the /token endpoint are the client-id and client-secret. The user credentials are the normal Spring Security user details (which default in Spring Boot to “user” and a random password).

To switch off the auto-configuration and configure the Authorization Server features yourself just add a @Bean of type AuthorizationServerConfigurer.

If you use your own authorization server configuration to configure the list of valid clients through an instance of ClientDetailsServiceConfigurer as shown below, take note that the passwords you configure here are subject to the modernized password storage that came with Spring Security 5. That means you have to prefix your passwords with an Id if you use Spring Boot Securities defaults for password storage.

public class CustomAuthorizationServerConfigurer extends
    AuthorizationServerConfigurerAdapter {

    public void configure(
        ClientDetailsServiceConfigurer clients
    ) throws Exception {
