    The method you are proposing is targeting client side authentication only. How would you authenticate server side from an Ionic app?

    We are using Loopback with Passport to authenticate the user server-side. Here’s the flow:

    – We load SERVER/auth/google in the inAppBrowser

    – Loopback (Passport) redirects to Google OAuth (as the plugin you are suggesting does) form setting SERVER/auth/google/callback as recirect_url once authenticated

    – Once OAuth is completed and redirected, the Loopback server is now authenticated and the access token is sent to the client in a redirect to the client app

    The main problem with the cordova-plugin-googleplus is that we can’t pass a redirect URL which would target the server url, not the client itself.

    That limitation seems to come from the Google SDK itself which doesn’t seem to expose suc a property (

    We use keycloak for the identity management. How do we use it with respect to the above instructions where keycloak is handling the authentication and not the client
