Handling Social Media Integrations in a MEAN stack App after a user is Logged in

A user can create an account in my App only with his work email.


After he creates an account, he can link multiple social media accounts to his profile.


I'm using MEAN stack to develop the App.

When a user logs in to my app, I'm creating a JWT token to authorize all his future requests to the server.

When it comes to Social Media accounts Integrations, After successful authentication I'm able to receive the accessTokens from these Social Media to the backend callback URL. I need to link the tokens to the right user. Is there anyway I can pass my JWT token along with the callback URL to identify which user has made the request, because I cannot identify the user based on the email in his Social Media Account?

I was able to solve this using But I feel it is unnecessary to use sockets for simple authentication.

Is there any other approach to solve it? I have researched online, few of them suggested using passport. I don't fully understand how passport works, I just feel it is just a middleware to authenticate API requests from users, which I'm doing anyway using a custom function.

Could someone explain whether it is possible to pass JWT in callback URLs using passport strategies?

What is the right approach to handle such authentications in a MEAN stack app? I'm stuck with this issue since the past week, really looking forward for a good solution.

You might try using client side facebook authentication as described here

in this case in angular app you have facebook token alongside your app token and you can send them to your backend to identify the current user.

on backend part you eill call facebook to get profile data from accessToken and then store user profile id and depending on your business you might need also to store the access token

I have encountered this type of situation in one of the large scale applications I have been working for and the approach we used to handle it was to store the jwtToken in redis and then retrieve it back with the help of user cookies. Let me explain it in more detail -

  1. Send a new Cookie for the user when the user opens the login page. The cookie should contain some unique id or code against which we will save the JWT token,. Eg: res.cookie('jwtIdentifier', newid())
  2. Now, when the user logs in, generate the JWT token and save it to your redis against the cookie jwtIdentifier’s value. Eg: redisHelper.set(req.cookies.jwtIdentifier, JWTTOKEN)
  3. At last, when the login is successful and the user is redirected back to your app, you can retrieve your JWT token again for the corresponding user using the cookie. Eg: redisHelper.get(req.cookies.jwtIdentifier) This will give you back the JWT token that you can then use across your application for that specific user.

Authentication In MEAN Stack - A Quick Guide

I consider myself an active StackOverflow user, despite my activity tends to vary depending on my daily workload. I enjoy answering questions with angular tag and I always try to create some working example to prove correctness of my answers.

To create angular demo I usually use either plunker or stackblitz or even jsfiddle. I like all of them but when I run into some errors I want to have a little bit more usable tool to undestand what’s going on.

Many people who ask questions on stackoverflow don’t want to isolate the problem and prepare minimal reproduction so they usually post all code to their questions on SO. They also tend to be not accurate and make a lot of mistakes in template syntax. To not waste a lot of time investigating where the error comes from I tried to create a tool that will help me to quickly find what causes the problem.

There are template parser errors that can be easy catched by stackblitz

It gives me some information but I want the error to be highlighted
