Firefox Account OAuth Bearer token

Use the OAuth token with this header:

Authorization: Bearer <oauth_token>

Obtain the token

Using the Web UI

  • Navigate the client to GET /v2/fxa-oauth/login?redirect=http://app-endpoint/#. There, a session cookie will be set, and the client will be redirected to a login form on the FxA content server
  • After submitting the credentials on the login page, the client will be redirected to http://app-endpoint/#{token} the web-app.

Custom flow

The GET /v2/fxa-oauth/params endpoint can be use to get the configuration in order to trade the Firefox Account BrowserID with a Bearer Token. See Firefox Account documentation about this behavior
