Step 2 - Logging in the User
In the next step users will be asked to fill in the
password for the particular
This screen cannot be modified in any way. Users have to insert the password for the specified HAT and tap
Note that the complete address is served via SSL, contains the name of the HAT as well as the application parameters -
redirect url and
fallback redirect url.
LOGIN the authentication process will begin.
HAT will use one of the two
redirect url that were included in the
success redirect if everything went ok or
fallbackRedirectURL if an error occurred. The application has to know how to respond in both scenarios.
In order to achieve that we have to add the
success redirect and
fallbackRedirectURL to the
Info.plist file in the project.
In order to add them to the
Info.plist file you have to add the Key
URL Types as an Array.
Then add one item in that array of type Dictionary. The first item of the dictionary will be the
URL Identifier which is the reverse url domain of your project. eg.
com.hubofallthings.test. The second item of the dictionary will be
URL Schemes which is Array again. In this array you will add one String value and you will name it as you want. Best practice is to name as is the name of your app. This will be the url scheme of the your app. That means every time
iOS intercepts a URL starting with this value, like
test://host will hand the process to your app and your app will be responsible to either launch or not.
In order to decide if the app has to launch or not you have to add to your
AppDelegate file the following function:
func application(_ app: UIApplication, open url: URL, options: [UIApplication.OpenURLOptionsKey : Any] = [:]) -> Bool
This is the function that
iOS triggers when it receives a URL which matches the
URL Schemes that you defined in your
Info.plist file. You can find more info about it here. All that you have to do in this function is to check the URL and if you recognize it return
true else return
