B4J Tutorial [Web][SithasoDaisy] PocketBase - Configuring & Adding Google Authentication to your Apps

Hi Fam

Step 1

1. Create client id and client secret. On the Google API, select "Credentials" > Create Credentials > OAuth Client ID

Follow these instructions here from the google api console.

You will use the Client ID & Client Secret in the PocketBase Admin Screen > Settings > Auth Providers

Step 2

OAuth Consent Screen. Update your app settings for the consent screen. I didnt use a logo for my app. For testing purposes, I have used "" for the redirect url. My app is running on port 8010.

Step 3

In your PocketBase Admin screen, select settings on


The Auth Providers


Select the Google gear and update the Client ID and Client Secret with the content you got from google and save.

In your app call,

Dim userData As Map = banano.Await(pb.USER_AUTH_WITH_GOOGLE)

This will show a google web prompt to authenticate your app.

Have fun!
