Bootiful Microservices with Spring Boot

This example shows how to create a microservices architecture with Spring Boot and display its data with an Angular UI.

Please read Build a Microservices Architecture for Microbrews with Spring Boot for a tutorial that shows you how to build this application.

Prerequisites: Java 8 and Node.js.

Okta has Authentication and User Management APIs that reduce development time with instant-on, scalable user infrastructure. Okta's intuitive API and expert support make it easy for developers to authenticate, manage and secure users and roles in any application.

Getting Started

To install this example application, run the following commands:

git clone
cd spring-boot-microservices-example

This will get a copy of the project installed locally. To run the client and all the servers, execute ./, or execute the commands in this file manually.

echo $r

# Eureka
cd $r/eureka-service
echo "Starting Eureka Service..."
mvn -q clean spring-boot:run &

# Beer Service
echo "Starting Beer Catalog Service..."
cd $r/beer-catalog-service
mvn -q clean spring-boot:run &

# Edge Service
echo "Starting Edge Service..."
cd $r/edge-service
mvn -q clean spring-boot:run &

# Client
cd $r/client
npm install
echo "Starting Angular Client..."
npm start

The primary example (without authentication) is in the master branch. A pure Spring Security OAuth implementation is in an oauth branch, and an example with the Stormpath SDK is in the okta branch. Both branches use the Okta Sign-In Widget on the front end.

Spring Security OAuth

Okta implements the OAuth 2.0 protocol for its API. This means you can use libraries like Spring Security OAuth to provide single sign-on to your applications.

To check out the branch that uses Spring Security OAuth, run the following command.

git checkout oauth

The code in the oauth branch is described in Secure a Spring Microservices Architecture with Spring Security and OAuth 2.0.

The changes required to move from the Stormpath SDK to Spring Security OAuth can be viewed in pull request #8.

Create Applications in Okta

If you don't have one, create an Okta Developer account. After you've completed the setup process, log in to your account and navigate to Applications > Add Application. Click Web and Next. On the next page, enter the following values and click Done.

  • Application Name: Spring OAuth
  • Base URIs: http://localhost:8081
  • Login redirect URIs: http://localhost:8081/login

You need to add a roles claim to your ID Token, so your groups in Okta are translated to Spring Security authorities. In your Okta developer console, navigate to API > Authorization Servers, click the Authorization Servers tab and edit the default one. Click the Claims tab and Add Claim. Name it "roles" and include it in the ID Token. Set the value type to "Groups" and set the filter to be a Regex of .*.

Change security.oauth2.* properties in the following files to enter your client ID and client secret.

You can also create a ~/.okta.env file to override the properties in these files.


# Okta with JHipster
export SECURITY_OAUTH2_CLIENT_ACCESS_TOKEN_URI="https://{yourOktaDomain}.com/oauth2/default/v1/token"
export SECURITY_OAUTH2_CLIENT_USER_AUTHORIZATION_URI="https://{yourOktaDomain}.com/oauth2/default/v1/authorize"
export SECURITY_OAUTH2_RESOURCE_USER_INFO_URI="https://{yourOktaDomain}.com/oauth2/default/v1/userinfo"
export SECURITY_OAUTH2_RESOURCE_TOKEN_INFO_URI="https://{yourOktaDomain}.com/oauth2/default/v1/introspect"

Then run the following before starting any servers.

source ~/.okta.env

To use Okta's Sign-In Widget, you'll need to modify your app in Okta to enable an Implicit grant type. Log in to your account, navigate to Applications > Spring OAuth > General tab and click Edit. Enable Implicit (Hybrid) under Allowed grant types and select both checkboxes below it. Add http://localhost:4200 under Login redirect URIs and click Save.

In order for the Sign-In Widget to make requests to this application, you'll also need to configure the client URL as a trusted origin. Click API > Trusted Origins > Add Origin. Enter http://localhost:4200 as the Origin URL and select both checkboxes under it.

Change {clientId} and {yourOktaDomain} in client/src/app/shared/okta/okta.service.ts to match your app's values.

signIn = new OktaSignIn({
  baseUrl: 'https://{yourOktaDomain}.com',
  clientId: '{clientId}',
  authParams: {
    issuer: 'default',
    responseType: ['id_token', 'token'],
    scopes: ['openid', 'email', 'profile']

Stormpath SDK

To check out the branch that uses the Stormpath SDK, run the following command.

git checkout okta

The code in the okta branch is described in Secure a Spring Microservices Architecture with Spring Security, JWTs, Juiser, and Okta.

Create Applications in Okta

You will need to create an Okta developer account to configure the Spring Boot side of things. After creating an app and an access token, you should be able to set the following environment variables:

export OKTA_APPLICATION_ID={applicationId}
export OKTA_API_TOKEN={apiToken}

After you set these environment variables, make sure to restart your Spring Boot applications.

For Angular, you'll need to create an OIDC app on Okta. Change {clientId} and {yourOktaDomain} in client/src/app/shared/okta/okta.service.ts to match your app's values.

signIn = new OktaSignIn({
  baseUrl: 'https://{yourOktaDomain}.com',
  clientId: '{clientId}',
  authParams: {
    issuer: 'default',
    responseType: ['id_token', 'token'],
    scopes: ['openid', 'email', 'profile']

NOTE: The value of {yourOktaDomain} should be something like Make sure you don't include -admin in the value!

After making these changes, you should be able to log in with your credentials at http://localhost:4200.
