Detailed Description

The QOAuth1 class provides an implementation of the OAuth 1 Protocol.

QOAuth1 provides a method for clients to access server resources on behalf of a resource owner (such as a different client or an end-user). It also provides a process for end-users to authorize third-party access to their server resources without sharing their credentials (typically, a username and password pair), using user-agent redirections.

QOAuth1 uses tokens to represent the authorization granted to the client by the resource owner. Typically, token credentials are issued by the server at the resource owner's request, after authenticating the resource owner's identity (usually using a username and password).

When making the temporary credentials request, the client authenticates using only the client credentials. When making the token request, the client authenticates using the client credentials as well as the temporary credentials. Once the client receives and stores the token credentials, it can proceed to access protected resources on behalf of the resource owner by making authenticated requests using the client credentials together with the token credentials received.

Member Function Documentation

QOAuth1::QOAuth1(QObject *parent = nullptr)

Constructs a QOAuth1 object with parent object parent.

QOAuth1::QOAuth1(QNetworkAccessManager *manager, QObject *parent = nullptr)

Constructs a QOAuth1 object with parent object parent, using manager to access the network.

QOAuth1::QOAuth1(const QString &clientIdentifier, const QString &clientSharedSecret, QNetworkAccessManager *manager, QObject *parent = nullptr)

Constructs a QOAuth1 object with parent object parent, using manager to access the network. Also sets clientIdentifier and clientSharedSecret to sign the calls to the web server and identify the application.

QPair<QString, QString> QOAuth1::clientCredentials() const

Returns the pair of QString used to identify the application and sign requests to the web server.

See also setClientCredentials().

QString QOAuth1::clientSharedSecret() const

Returns the current shared secret used to sign requests to the web server.

See also setClientSharedSecret() and clientCredentials().

[signal] void QOAuth1::clientSharedSecretChanged(const QString &credential)

[slot] void QOAuth1::continueGrantWithVerifier(const QString &verifier)

Continues the Redirection-Based Authorization flow using verifier. Call this function when using an Out-of-band reply handler to supply the verifier provided by the web server.

[override virtual] QNetworkReply *QOAuth1::deleteResource(const QUrl &url, const QVariantMap &parameters = ...)

Reimplemented from QAbstractOAuth::deleteResource().

Sends an authenticated DELETE request and returns a new QNetworkReply. The url and parameters are used to create the request.

See also: Hypertext Transfer Protocol -- HTTP/1.1: DELETE

[static protected] QByteArray QOAuth1::generateAuthorizationHeader(const QVariantMap &oauthParams)

Generates an authorization header using oauthParams.

See also: The OAuth 1.0 Protocol: Authorization Header

[override virtual] QNetworkReply *QOAuth1::get(const QUrl &url, const QVariantMap &parameters = ...)

Reimplemented from QAbstractOAuth::get().

Sends an authenticated GET request and returns a new QNetworkReply. The url and parameters are used to create the request.

See also: Hypertext Transfer Protocol -- HTTP/1.1: GET

[override virtual slot] void QOAuth1::grant()

Reimplemented from QAbstractOAuth::grant().

Starts the Redirection-Based Authorization flow.

Note: For an out-of-band reply handler, a verifier string is received after the call to this function; pass that to continueGrantWithVerifier() to continue the grant process.

See also: The OAuth 1.0 Protocol: Redirection-Based Authorization

See also continueGrantWithVerifier().

Reimplemented from QAbstractOAuth::head().

Sends an authenticated HEAD request and returns a new QNetworkReply. The url and parameters are used to create the request.

See also: Hypertext Transfer Protocol -- HTTP/1.1: HEAD

[static protected] QByteArray QOAuth1::nonce()

Generates a nonce.

See also: The OAuth 1.0 Protocol: Nonce and Timestamp

[override virtual] QNetworkReply *QOAuth1::post(const QUrl &url, const QVariantMap &parameters = ...)

Reimplemented from QAbstractOAuth::post().

Sends an authenticated POST request and returns a new QNetworkReply. The url and parameters are used to create the request.

See also: Hypertext Transfer Protocol -- HTTP/1.1: POST

[override virtual] QNetworkReply *QOAuth1::put(const QUrl &url, const QVariantMap &parameters = ...)

Reimplemented from QAbstractOAuth::put().

Sends an authenticated PUT request and returns a new QNetworkReply. The url and parameters are used to create the request.

See also: Hypertext Transfer Protocol -- HTTP/1.1: PUT

[protected] QNetworkReply *QOAuth1::requestTemporaryCredentials(QNetworkAccessManager::Operation operation, const QUrl &url, const QVariantMap &parameters = ...)

Starts the a request for temporary credentials using the request method operation. The request URL is url and the parameters shall encoded and sent during the request.

See also: The OAuth 1.0 Protocol: Temporary Credentials

[protected] QNetworkReply *QOAuth1::requestTokenCredentials(QNetworkAccessManager::Operation operation, const QUrl &url, const QPair<QString, QString> &temporaryToken, const QVariantMap &parameters = ...)

Starts a request for token credentials using the request method operation. The request URL is url and the parameters shall be encoded and sent during the request. The temporaryToken pair of string is used to identify and sign the request.
