auth-provider

Given that my current setup is tentative, how can I configure my auth-provider to make an axios.post request to my backend for login at https://localhost:5002/login? Currently, my dataProvider is set to two resources like this:
dataProvider={{
default: dataProvider("http://localhost:5001/api"),
auth: dataProvider("http://localhost:5001"),
}}
dataProvider={{
default: dataProvider("http://localhost:5001/api"),
auth: dataProvider("http://localhost:5001"),
}}
What's the best way to access axios.post('/login') from the auth-provider page?

Hi @darshan_sandhu. I'm kapa.ai, your friendly support bot. I will try to answer your question by searching through the knowledge base. :wave: ---------------------- You can configure your authProvider to make an axios.post request to your backend for login by creating an axios instance and using it in the login method of your authProvider. Here's an example based on the information extracts:
import { AuthBindings } from "@refinedev/core";
import axios from "axios";

const axiosInstance = axios.create({
baseURL: "https://localhost:5002",
});

const authProvider: AuthBindings = {
login: async ({ username, password }) => {
const response = await axiosInstance.post("/login", { username, password });

if (response.status === 200) {
// Handle successful login, e.g., store token in localStorage
// and set Authorization header for axiosInstance

return {
success: true,
redirectTo: "/",
};
}

return {
success: false,
error: {
message: "Invalid credentials",
name: "Invalid credentials",
},
};
},
// Other authProvider methods...
};
import { AuthBindings } from "@refinedev/core";
import axios from "axios";

const axiosInstance = axios.create({
baseURL: "https://localhost:5002",
});

const authProvider: AuthBindings = {
login: async ({ username, password }) => {
const response = await axiosInstance.post("/login", { username, password });

if (response.status === 200) {
// Handle successful login, e.g., store token in localStorage
// and set Authorization header for axiosInstance

return {
success: true,
redirectTo: "/",
};
}

return {
success: false,
error: {
message: "Invalid credentials",
name: "Invalid credentials",
},
};
},
// Other authProvider methods...
};
Then, in your App component, pass the authProvider to the Refine component:
import dataProvider from "@refinedev/simple-rest";

// ...

return (
<Refine
authProvider={authProvider}
dataProvider={{
default: dataProvider("http://localhost:5001/api"),
auth: dataProvider("http://localhost:5001"),
}}
>
{/* ... */}
</Refine>
);
import dataProvider from "@refinedev/simple-rest";

// ...

return (
<Refine
authProvider={authProvider}
dataProvider={{
default: dataProvider("http://localhost:5001/api"),
auth: dataProvider("http://localhost:5001"),
}}
>
{/* ... */}
</Refine>
);
This configuration will make a POST request to https://localhost:5002/login when the login method of the authProvider is called. ---------------------- Note: you can ask me a follow up question by @ mentioning me again :speech_balloon: ----------------------

@kapa.ai What version of axios is the tutorial using for Setting Authorization Credentials?
// ---
import { AuthBindings } from "@refinedev/core";
import axios, { AxiosRequestConfig } from "axios";

const axiosInstance = axios.create();

axiosInstance.interceptors.request.use((request: AxiosRequestConfig) => {
// Retrieve the token from local storage
const token = JSON.parse(localStorage.getItem("auth"));
// Check if the header property exists
if (request.headers) {
// Set the Authorization header if it exists
request.headers["Authorization"] = `Bearer ${token}`;
} else {
// Create the headers property if it does not exist
request.headers = {
Authorization: `Bearer ${token}`,
};
}

return request;
});

const mockUsers = [
{ username: "admin", token: "123" },
{ username: "editor", token: "321" },
];

const App = () => {
const authProvider: AuthBindings = {
login: async ({ username, password }) => {
// Suppose we actually send a request to the back end here.
const user = mockUsers.find((item) => item.username === username);

if (user) {

I'm using axios: 1.4.0 and I am getting TS errors on the request: AxiosRequestConfig

Let me check the knowledge base for you. One moment! :books: ---------------------- The tutorial doesn't explicitly mention the version of axios being used. However, you can try updating your axios version to the latest one to resolve the TypeScript errors. To do this, run:
npm install axios@latest
npm install axios@latest
Or, if you're using Yarn:
yarn add axios@latest
yarn add axios@latest
After updating axios, make sure to restart your development server to see if the TypeScript errors are resolved. If you still face issues, please share the specific TypeScript errors you're encountering so that we can provide more targeted assistance. ---------------------- Note: you can ask me a follow up question by @ mentioning me again :speech_balloon: ----------------------

Let me check the knowledge base for you. One moment! :books: ---------------------- It seems like there's a type mismatch issue with the axios interceptor. You can try updating the interceptor code to ensure the headers are properly assigned. Here's an updated version of the code:
import { AuthBindings } from "@refinedev/core";
import axios, { AxiosRequestConfig } from "axios";

const axiosInstance = axios.create();

axiosInstance.interceptors.request.use((request: AxiosRequestConfig) => {
// Retrieve the token from local storage
const token = JSON.parse(localStorage.getItem("auth"));

// Check if the header property exists
if (!request.headers) {
request.headers = {};
}

// Set the Authorization header
request.headers["Authorization"] = `Bearer ${token}`;

return request;
});

// ... rest of the code
import { AuthBindings } from "@refinedev/core";
import axios, { AxiosRequestConfig } from "axios";

const axiosInstance = axios.create();

axiosInstance.interceptors.request.use((request: AxiosRequestConfig) => {
// Retrieve the token from local storage
const token = JSON.parse(localStorage.getItem("auth"));

// Check if the header property exists
if (!request.headers) {
request.headers = {};
}

// Set the Authorization header
request.headers["Authorization"] = `Bearer ${token}`;

return request;
});

// ... rest of the code
This should resolve the TypeScript error you're encountering. Make sure to restart your development server after making these changes. ---------------------- Note: you can ask me a follow up question by @ mentioning me again :speech_balloon: ----------------------

@kapa.ai This works
import axios, { InternalAxiosRequestConfig, AxiosRequestHeaders } from "axios";

const axiosInstance = axios.create();

axiosInstance.interceptors.request.use(
(request: InternalAxiosRequestConfig) => {
// Retrieve the token from local storage
const token = JSON.parse(localStorage.getItem("auth") || "");

if (request.headers) {
// Set the Authorization header if it exists
request.headers["Authorization"] = `Bearer ${token}`;
} else {
// Create the headers property if it does not exist
request.headers = {
Authorization: `Bearer ${token}`,
} as AxiosRequestHeaders;
}

return request;
}
);

export default axiosInstance;
import axios, { InternalAxiosRequestConfig, AxiosRequestHeaders } from "axios";

const axiosInstance = axios.create();

axiosInstance.interceptors.request.use(
(request: InternalAxiosRequestConfig) => {
// Retrieve the token from local storage
const token = JSON.parse(localStorage.getItem("auth") || "");

if (request.headers) {
// Set the Authorization header if it exists
request.headers["Authorization"] = `Bearer ${token}`;
} else {
// Create the headers property if it does not exist
request.headers = {
Authorization: `Bearer ${token}`,
} as AxiosRequestHeaders;
}

return request;
}
);

export default axiosInstance;
I'm still learning a ton so I'll take it as it is

Let me check the knowledge base for you. One moment! :books: ---------------------- I'm glad the updated code works for you. Here's the working code snippet for setting up an axios instance with an interceptor for handling the Authorization header:
import axios, { InternalAxiosRequestConfig, AxiosRequestHeaders } from "axios";

const axiosInstance = axios.create();

axiosInstance.interceptors.request.use(
(request: InternalAxiosRequestConfig) => {
// Retrieve the token from local storage
const token = JSON.parse(localStorage.getItem("auth") || "");

if (request.headers) {
// Set the Authorization header if it exists
request.headers["Authorization"] = `Bearer ${token}`;
} else {
// Create the headers property if it does not exist
request.headers = {
Authorization: `Bearer ${token}`,
} as AxiosRequestHeaders;
}

return request;
}
);

export default axiosInstance;
import axios, { InternalAxiosRequestConfig, AxiosRequestHeaders } from "axios";

const axiosInstance = axios.create();

axiosInstance.interceptors.request.use(
(request: InternalAxiosRequestConfig) => {
// Retrieve the token from local storage
const token = JSON.parse(localStorage.getItem("auth") || "");

if (request.headers) {
// Set the Authorization header if it exists
request.headers["Authorization"] = `Bearer ${token}`;
} else {
// Create the headers property if it does not exist
request.headers = {
Authorization: `Bearer ${token}`,
} as AxiosRequestHeaders;
}

return request;
}
);

export default axiosInstance;
This code creates an axios instance and adds an interceptor to handle the Authorization header by retrieving the token from local storage and setting it in the request headers. ---------------------- Note: you can ask me a follow up question by @ mentioning me again :speech_balloon: ----------------------

@kapa.ai I rushed things and didn't realize that @refinedev/simple-rest uses axios 0.26.1. I tried to work around all these bugs. I made this mistake twice now and I think I have learned! One thing I discovered is npm ls to see the dependency tree for a specific package. I changed my axios version and everything is working as expected. Geeze, my bad!

Let me check the knowledge base for you. One moment! :books: ---------------------- I'm glad you were able to resolve the issue by updating the axios version. It's great that you've learned about npm ls to see the dependency tree for a specific package. This can be really helpful in understanding and managing dependencies in your project. Remember, it's always a good idea to check the dependencies and their versions when integrating third-party libraries. If you encounter any issues or have questions in the future, feel free to ask. Happy coding! ---------------------- Note: you can ask me a follow up question by @ mentioning me again :speech_balloon: ----------------------
