Microsoft Account API Local Plugin
This plugin provides a simple client API for OAuth2-based authentication and token management for Microsoft Account. It also provides some helper functions for making REST API calls to services that use the Microsoft Account.
$msaccountapi = msaccount_api::getinstance();
Logging the user in:
Making a REST API call:
$response = $msaccount_api->myget($url);
There are several parts that make up the Microsoft Account API plugin.
This allows an administrator to specify OAuth2 settings such as client id and secret for the Microsoft Account application associated with this Moodle installation.
This is a singleton class that provides simple wrappers for various methods provided by the msaccount_client class. Please use this class for accessing all the functionality provided by the msaccount_client class.
Note: Please do not use this class directly. Instead, use the msaccount_api class described above.
This class is derived from Moodle's oauth2_client class and:
- Adds support for retrieving and saving refresh tokens and logging in using the refresh token if the main token expires.
- This also becomes useful for automated unit testing because we can use the refresh tokens to log users in automatically.
- Works around an issue in the oauth2_client where it sets the token in the header only if it thinks that it is making a post request, but the Microsoft Account REST API needs auth token in the header for get as well as post requests.
This is part of the suite of Microsoft Services plugins for Moodle.
