i am struggling to understand how I am supposed to get token from a server only app.
When in the browser I am pretty much clear - with keycloak-js all is fine.
Now when I need to connect from the server side, I don’t see how to do it.
keycloakjs seems to require a ‘window’ - so can’t really use it there.
And the keycloak-connect for nodejs seem to be focused on protecting routes in Express more than anything else…
So shall I write something from scratch using the OpenID Connect endpoints? I am pretty sure there is a much simpler alternative.
As I understand your question, you are using keycloak in your backend for authentication and authorization.
You can use expose-token=true in your deployment configuration.
Then you can use this endpoint to get the token from server /k_query_bearer_token.
From KC documentation
root/k_query_bearer_token . This is OPTIONAL . The default value is false .
thanks for the input
Just to update, for now I have fixed the problem using Grant Password.
