  • getting the "redirect_uri" within the login page

    Hi Dave,

    In my implementation of OAuth, I have a login page that lets a non-registered user to create an account.

    After a user successfully creates an account, I send him a verification email, which supposed to both activate his account as well as redirect him to the page he initially wanted to get to. In oAuth, when a user tries to get to a protected resource, he is redirected to the oAuth mechanism, and one of the params is the "redirect-uri", so after authenticating the oAuth-server knows where to send the client to. Unfortunately, I did not find the way to get the "redirect-uri" within the login page, so I cannot pass it as a param to the "create account" flow. (Meaning, once I left the login page, I do not know the "redirect-uri").

    Is there a way to get the redirect-uri?

    Note: It might be a question that is related not specifically to oAuth, so I've posted it in spring Security Forum as well...

    You are right, I think, in that it is not an OAuth concern - why would the initial request be an OAuth redirect, necessarily? Spring Security stores the initial request in a login flow in the session, and you can get it from there if you know where to find it (the other forum probably will help).
