For the past month we have been busy. Today we are proud to announce that we have launched a new version of WP OAuth Server – CE (community edition). This update will bring OAuth 2.0 to the forefront of WordPress openly. Unlike any other plugin for WordPress, WP OAuth Server – CE provides more in depth control over OAuth 2 and WordPress.
Authorization code is the most popular grant type used by OAuth 2. WP OAuth Server CE has a full OAuth 2 server built by our experts in WordPress security and user authentication. Authorization Code or simple “Auth Code” is widely used as a 3 legged model that provides SSO (single sign on) capabilities as an OAuth2 provider/server.
WP REST API User Authentication / Authorization
CE provides now opens the door to Bearer Token authorization. Bearer token authorization can be used to authorize and authenticate any call made to the REST API. Bearer tokens are commonly used in OAuth 2 and now it can be used alongside the WP REST API seamlessly.
We understand that a good product is well documented and supported. This is why we added a direct way to communicate with our developers. You may notice reading this article that there is a chat bar or icon at the bottom of the page. During business hours, this allows customers and users of WP OAuth Server to contact a developer directly for the best support possible.
As always, you can download WP OAuth Server for WordPress by visiting https://wordpress.org/plugins/oauth2-provider/. If you are upgrading, you can do so right in the admin area of your WordPress site.
