Using the OAuth configuration in a Jigx solution
1: Add a function to your Jigx solution to get a user’s profile information from Microsoft Graph. See the code below.
2: Add a jig that uses this function.
To invoke the OAuth dialog, you must pass the accessToken parameter from the jig to the function. This is specific to when the REST provider is used with access tokens. If you do not pass the access token parameter as part of the jig function configuration, the mobile app will not prompt the user for their credentials.
See the code below.
3: Add a 1x1 widget to access this jig in the Index file. See the sample code below.
4: Publish the solution and open it in the Jigx Mobile app.
The user should be prompted for their credentials. After a successful OAuth loop, the token will be stored for future use, and the function will be executed, displaying the information on the jig.
After a successful OAuth loop, the returned token will be stored for future use until it expires. If the provider supports a refresh token, Jigx will automatically use the refresh token to avoid prompting the user again for credentials. Once the refresh token becomes invalid or if no token was provided, Jigx will prompt the user with the OAuth loop to get a new token.
If authentication fails, the user can use the Secondary Identities menu in the Settings section of the Jigx mobile App to manage OAuth tokens. If the token is not visible in the list, something failed early during the OAuth loop. Use the Jigx debug tools in VS Code to trace the error using the Jigx Builder output window.
