Portier authentication support in Kinto

Project description

Portier authentication support for Kinto

travis Coverage

kinto-portier enables authentication in Kinto applications using an email address.

It provides:

  • An authentication policy class;

  • Integration with Kinto cache backend for token verifications;

  • Integration with Kinto for heartbeat view checks;

  • Some optional endpoints to perform the OAuth dance (optional).

  • Kinto documentation

  • Issue tracker


Install the Python package:

pip install kinto-portier

Include the package in the project configuration:

kinto.includes = kinto_portier

And configure authentication policy using pyramid_multiauth formalism:

multiauth.policies = portier
multiauth.policy.portier.use = kinto_portier.authentication.PortierOAuthAuthenticationPolicy

By default, it will rely on the cache configured in Kinto.


Fill those settings with the values obtained during the application registration:

kinto.portier.broker_url =
kinto.portier.webapp.authorized_domains = *
# kinto.portier.cache_ttl_seconds = 300
# kinto.portier.state.ttl_seconds = 3600

Login flow

OAuth Bearer token

Use the OAuth token with this header:

Authorization: Portier <jwt_token>

If the token is not valid, this will result in a 401 error response.
