Detailed Description

Represents a user that is authenticated directly by the backend using OAuth2 standard.

This class can authenticate a user by verifying the user's login and password. The user has to exist in the backend already.

To authenticate an instance of EnginioClient called client such code may be used:

EnginioOAuth2Authentication *identity = new EnginioOAuth2Authentication(client);


Setting the identity will trigger an asynchronous request, resulting in EnginioClient::authenticationState() changing.

See also EnginioClientConnection::authenticationState(), EnginioClientConnection::identity(), EnginioClient::sessionAuthenticated(), EnginioClient::sessionAuthenticationError(), and EnginioClient::sessionTerminated().
