PHP League oAuth 2.0 password grant usage


Firstly, make sure you have an instance of your provider, in this example, I'll just be using the GenericProvider.

$client = new oAuth2Client([
    'clientId' => 'client_id',
    'clientSecret' => 'client_secret',
    'redirectUri' => null,
    'urlAuthorize' => null,
    'urlAccessToken' => '/your/oauth/token/endpoint',
    'urlResourceOwnerDetails' => null,

Once you've got that, you obviously want to get your access token, so it's quite easy, just pass in password, as the grant type and the relevant options.

$accessToken = $client->getAccessToken('password', [
    'username' => 'your_username',
    'password' => 'your_password',
