User Guide for Authenticator for third-party apps

For whom wants to use this authenticator to get the auth token and access the account's private resources in the server, just like google or facebook account, the third-party apps can get the token to access your account information without login process. For this project, we implement this authenticator using XWiki Session authentication  so that you can get the auth token from the android authenticator and access the account's information from server.

If you are an android developer and want to access the xwiki account, the tips below are what you may use in your android app. Following these guidance you can easily access the xwiki account which have been added in your phone.

  1. Useful Apis  
  2. Use Demo  
  3. Note: You should get the auth token again if you found the auth token was expired. if these two tokens are the same, directly call inValideAuthToken function and retrieve a new token;  if it's different, just use the new token to access server because maybe others have updated the token before.
