Sitecore Identity – 3 – Adding mobile native clients

In the last two parts of the Sitecore Identity series, I described the basics and an understanding of the architecture and how IdentityServer4 is embedded and used in Sitecore 9.1+, the second part was a demo for adding a web client that authenticates itself against the Sitecore Identity (meaning that a custom web application uses Sitecore as the login method think like Login using Facebook or any other Identity Provider).

The third post of the series is a bit new, as there aren’t any samples (that I could find). I will show how to add a native mobile app client (iOS for this post but Android works the exact same).
This will enable you first to authenticate against the Sitecore Identity, then secondly (later posts coming) consume protected APIs (whether Sitecore native or custom ones).

Sitecore Identity – 2 – Adding web clients

In the first part of the series I tried to explain and give a very small introduction to what is Sitecore Identity and the basic implementation that comes out of the box with Sitecore 9.1 +

In this part I will show some coding and how to build an external web application that uses the Sitecore Identity server to authenticate users, and to connect to the Sitecore instance APIs.

Understanding jss create for Sitecore JSS

One thing I love about Sitecore is the ability to extend and customize almost anything. And that also goes with the newly released Sitecore JSS.

In the previous posts, I gave a very brief introduction and getting started with Sitecore JSS, and then I tried to recreate a very minimal JSS app without using any out of the box client tools.

In this post I will show how to use the Sitecore JSS tools to reuse your own template.

Bare bones Sitecore JSS react application

In the last post of getting started with Sitecore JSS, I ¬†worte a brief introduction on what is actually Sitecore JSS, decribed the server and client components and finally showed how to run the out of box react template. I also described briefly what comes with the default template in terms of folder but didn’t get into details of that.

In this post, I will build the simplest ever jss application without using the default template, and deploying it to Sitecore with the bare minimum, this will help to understand all the moving parts under the hood.

I have been working on a mega project using Sitecore JSS, it even got pushed to production since TP4.

Having said, I decided to start blogging about this awesome technology hopefully to give back to the community and to learn more through the process.

So let’s begin.
