Kazoo OAuth Integration#


Kazoo can be configured to use third-party resources such as authentication, storage, etc.

Kazoo as a OAuth Client#

  1. Create the oauth consumer in the third-party system (google, Microsoft, Salesforce, ...).
  2. Register the consumer in kazoo.
  3. Use kz_auth_client to obtain a token to use the third-party resources

Using Google Drive for voicemails#

  1. Create a new Project in 1.1 After you are logged in go to 1.2 Look for Google Drive API in the search field and open it 1.3 Click Enable button (in case you don't have it enabled yet) 1.4 Do the same for Google+ API (search for it and enable it) 1.5 On the left hand sidebar, click Credentials 1.6 Click OAuth consent screen tab and fill the form with the corresponding information 1.7 Click Credentials tab 1.8 In the Create credentials drop-down menu select OAuth client ID 1.9 Application type: Web application 1.10 Name it and then click on create button 1.11 Take note of the client ID and client secret values (we will need those later)

  2. Register the auth app: 2.1 example: sup kazoo_auth_maintenance register_auth_app {kazoo_master_account_id} {gdrive_client_ID} {gdrive_client_secret} google

  3. Edit index.html in the example dir 3.1 change YOUR_CLIENT_ID and WEB_URL 3.2 navigate to WEB_URL 3.3 click authorize 3.4 gather code : xxxx 3.5 call kazoo API /v2/auth/callback (PUT)

      "data": {
        "client_id" : {CLIENT_ID},
        "redirect_uri" : {WEB_URL},
        "code" : {CODE},
        "provider" : "google"

3.6 grab the token returned and use the page to decode it 3.7 grab auth_id 3.8 use the auth_idto configure your data_plan

$ cat data_plan.json
    "attachments": {
        "5fa1f134417927ae200fb12879acec71": {

                        "stub": true

$ curl -X PUT Kazoo API /v2/accounts/{account_id}/storage \
