Real-time example of implementing Single Sign-On (SSO) in a Spring Boot application :

Lets consider a real-time example of implementing Single Sign-On (SSO) in a Spring Boot application using OAuth 2.0 with Google as the identity provider. In this scenario, users will be able to sign in to your Spring Boot application using their Google accounts.

  1. Configure Google OAuth 2.0: Go to the Google Developers Console (, create a new project, and enable the Google+ API. Then, create OAuth 2.0 credentials by following these steps:

    • Go to "Credentials" and click on "Create Credentials" > "OAuth client ID".
    • Select "Web application" as the application type.
    • Set the "Authorized JavaScript origins" to your applications base URL.
    • Set the "Authorized redirect URIs" to http://localhost:8080/login/oauth2/code/google (replace with your actual domain if applicable).
    • Save the credentials and note down the generated client ID and client secret.
  2. Configure Spring Boot Application Properties: Add the following configuration properties to your or application.yml file:

# Google OAuth 2.0 Configuration{baseUrl}/login/oauth2/code/{registrationId},email # Spring Security Configuration

Replace YOUR_CLIENT_ID and YOUR_CLIENT_SECRET with the actual values obtained from the Google Developers Console.

  1. Configure Spring Security: Create a configuration class that extends WebSecurityConfigurerAdapter and override the configure(HttpSecurity http) method:
import; import; import; @EnableWebSecurity public class SecurityConfig extends WebSecurityConfigurerAdapter { @Override protected void configure(HttpSecurity http) throws Exception { http .authorizeRequests() .antMatchers("/").permitAll() .anyRequest().authenticated() .and() .oauth2Login() .defaultSuccessUrl("/dashboard") .and() .logout() .logoutSuccessUrl("/") .invalidateHttpSession(true) .deleteCookies("JSESSIONID"); } }
  1. Create Controllers: Create the necessary controllers for handling login, logout, and protected endpoints:
import org.springframework.stereotype.Controller; import org.springframework.web.bind.annotation.GetMapping; @Controller public class HomeController { @GetMapping("/") public String home() { return "home"; } @GetMapping("/dashboard") public String dashboard() { return "dashboard"; } }
  1. Create HTML Templates: Create home.html and dashboard.html templates in the src/main/resources/templates directory with appropriate content.

  2. Run the Application: Run the Spring Boot application and access http://localhost:8080 in your browser. You will be redirected to the Google login page, where you can sign in with your Google account. After successful authentication, you will be redirected back to the applications dashboard.

This is a simplified example that demonstrates SSO using Google OAuth 2.0 in a Spring Boot application. Depending on your requirements, you may need to customize the application further, handle user information, and integrate with other identity providers.
