Oauth Salesforce with Lightning Out

Posted on

Hi All,

In this article, I will explain the code which can be used for connecting and getting the records
from different or multiple salesforce organization using Apex and Lightning Out.

To start first you need to authorize URLs which can be accessed from salesforce environment.
Go to Setup > Administration Setup > Security Controls > Remote Site Settings.


Create Custom Setting for Version,Client Id,Client Secret. Go to SETUP > BUILD > DEVELOP > CUSTOM Settings.

After completing all the steps let’s start coding.

CallBackURLController.apxc :

public with sharing class CallBackURLController{

    public Static List<Contact> getContacts(String Accesscode){
        version__c vrsn = [select name, ClientId__c, ClientSecret__c from version__c limit 1];
        Accesscode = Accesscode.replace('=','%3D').trim();
        String redireUri = 'https://skdomain-dev-ed--c.ap2.visual.force.com/apex/callbackurl';
        String loginUri = 'https://login.salesforce.com';
        String header = '';
        String endpoint = '';
        String reqbody = 'grant_type=authorization_code' + '&client_id=' + vrsn.ClientId__c +
            '&client_secret=' + vrsn.ClientSecret__c + '&code=' + Accesscode + '&redirect_uri=' + redireUri;
        endpoint = loginUri + '/services/oauth2/token?' + reqbody;
        Map<String, object> mapReqBody = CallBackURLController.getHTTPResponse(endpoint, header, 'POST');
        header = string.valueOf(mapReqBody.get('token_type')) + ' ' + string.valueOf(mapReqBody.get('access_token'));
        endpoint = loginUri + '/services/oauth2/userinfo';
        ///// User Info       
        Map<String, object> mapReqInfoBody = CallBackURLController.getHTTPResponse(endpoint, header, 'POST');
        ///// Query Request
        Map<String, object> mapURI = (Map<String, object>) mapReqInfoBody.get('urls');
        string queryUri = string.valueOf(mapURI.get('query')).replace('{version}',vrsn.name);
        endpoint = queryUri + '?q=select+id,Name,Phone,Email+from+contact+where+phone+!=null+limit+1000';
        Map<String, object> mapReqQryBody = CallBackURLController.getHTTPResponse(endpoint, header, 'GET');
        string strCons = JSON.serialize(mapReqQryBody.get('records'));
        list<contact> lstCon = (list<contact>) JSON.deserialize(strCons, List<contact>.class);
        return lstCon;
    public static Map<String, object> getHTTPResponse(String endpoint, String header, String method){
        HttpRequest req = new HttpRequest();  
        if(header != ''){
            req.setHeader('Content-Type', 'application/json');
            req.setHeader('Authorization', header);
        Http httpReq = new Http();  
        HTTPResponse res = httpReq.send(req);
        return (Map<String, object>)JSON.deserializeUntyped(res.getBody());

This class is making a callout to other Salesforce Org and fetching Contacts of that Salesforce Org.

LightningOutApp.app :

<aura:application access="GLOBAL" extends="ltng:outApp">
    <aura:dependency resource="c:LightningOutCmp" />

LightningOutCmp.cmp :

<aura:component controller="CallBackURLController" implements="force:appHostable">
    <aura:attribute name="code" type="String" default=""/>
    <aura:attribute name="contacts" type="Contact[]" />
    <aura:if isTrue="{!v.code==''}">
    	<ui:button label="login into Other Org" press="{!c.redirect}"/>
        <aura:set attribute="else">
        	<ui:button label="Get Contacts" press="{!c.getCons}"/>
    <div id="tblDiv" style="display:none">
            <aura:iteration items="{!v.contacts}" var="con">

This component will be used in Visualforce Page.

LightningOutCmpController.js :

	redirect : function(component, event, helper) {
        window.location.href = 'https://login.salesforce.com/services/oauth2/authorize?response_type=code&client_id=[YOUR CLIENT ID]&redirect_uri=[REDIRECT URL]&prompt=login&display=popup';        
    getCons : function(component, event, helper) {
        document.getElementById("tblDiv").style.display = "block";
        var code = component.get("v.code");        
    	helper.getContacts(component, code);

Redirect() function will redirct to the login page for Salesforce Login. getCons() function will get Contact from logged in Salesforce Org.

LightningOutCmpHelper.js :

    getContacts: function(component, code) {        
        var action = component.get("c.getContacts");
            "Accesscode": code
        var self = this;
        action.setCallback(this, function(actionResult) {
            component.set("v.contacts", actionResult.getReturnValue());       


<apex:page showHeader="false" sidebar="false" standardStylesheets="false">
 <!-- Lightning Resources-->
    <apex:includeScript value="/lightning/lightning.out.js" /> 
    <!-- JavaScript to make Remote Objects calls -->
        var code="{!$CurrentPage.parameters.code}";
        $Lightning.use("c:LightningOutApp", function() {
                  { "code" : code },
                  function(cmp) {
                    // any further setup goes here
    <!-- Lightning Component -->
    <div id="lightningComponent"/>

When completed it will look like this.

12204800_921217127916108_1436226568_n 12204574_921217134582774_409109935_n 12207968_921217131249441_1515473630_n 12208016_921217124582775_1057121612_n


When you click on “Login into Other Org” it will prompt you to login to salesforce. After logging in it will redirect you to Component Page and when you click on “Get Contacts” button it will fetch records from other Salesforce Org.
