PRO: oAuth2-Demo by using Shortcode in twig-code

This pages shows you how to get access to the data at
http://api.json-content-importer.com/extra/api/getdata.php?gd=acc

This API / URL expects:

  • Useragent: mozilla
  • HTTP-Header with “Authorization:Bearer TOKEN”
  • “TOKEN” has to be obtained from
    http://api.json-content-importer.com/extra/api/gettoken.php
    For that user / password has to be sent by CURL-POST.

This is called oAuth2, to avoid sending user / password via http, but a TOKEN the API can check if user / password is ok.

We need two JCI-Shortcodes for that.

JCI-Template 1: The Shortcode (orderofshortcodeeval=1 tells the plugin to first execute the twig code and then the Shortcode – 10 would not execute the Shortcode, then you can see the TOKEN…)

[jsoncontentimporterpro nameoftemplate="demo-oauth" orderofshortcodeeval=1]

is for the page which will show us the data.

Defined it like this:

  • Name: demo-oauth
  • URL: http://api.json-content-importer.com/extra/api/gettoken.php
  • method: CURL-POST
  • curloptions: CURLOPT_POSTFIELDS={“user”: “test”, “password”: “mypass”}
  • twig-template:
test<br>
[jsoncontentimporterpro nameoftemplate="demo-oauth2" curloptions="CURLOPT_USERAGENT=mozilla;CURLOPT_HTTPHEADER=Authorization:Bearer {{access_token}}"]

Ok, we need JCI-Template 2:

  • name: demo-oath2
  • URL: http://api.json-content-importer.com/extra/api/getdata.php?gd=acc
  • method: CURL-GET
  • curloptions: are sent from the other JCI-Template, where this Shortcode is used
  • twig-template:
{% if datasuccess %}
{% for b in boat %}
boat-id: {{b.id}}<br>
{% endfor %}
<hr>
{% for h in harbour %}
harbour-id: {{h.id}}<br>
{% endfor %}
{% endif %}

In Action:

boat-id: 6585318
boat-id: 5490795

boat-id: 7518852
