Implementation of sso

below is a example middlwhare for implementation of the Authentication using SSO the type of the OAuth respose is given after the example code

func (h *Handler) OAuthMiddlwhare(next http.Handler) http.Handler {
return http.HandlerFunc(func(w http.ResponseWriter, r *http.Request) {
authheader := r.Header["Authorization"]

if len(authheader) == 0 {
// h.sendErrorResponse(w, "Missing Authorization Header", fmt.Errorf("Authorization is required Header"), 401)
http.Redirect(w, r, "/api/v1/login", 401)

AccessToken := strings.Split(authheader[0], " ")[1]

resp, err := http.Get(fmt.Sprintf("%s/test?access_token=%s", h.AuthServerURI, AccessToken))

if err != nil {
h.sendErrorResponse(w, "Token Error", err, 401)

body, err := ioutil.ReadAll(resp.Body)

var data types.OAuthRespose
json.Unmarshal(body, &data)
defer r.Body.Close()

// pass the user detailsj
ctx := context.WithValue(r.Context(), "user", data)
next.ServeHTTP(w, r.WithContext(ctx))

type of the OAuth respose

"client_id": "222222",
"expires_in": 7003,
"user_email": "[email protected]",
"user_id": "[email protected]",
"user_name": "john",
"user_roles": [
"type": "user"
