Simple Platform Server

Simple server for web apps using the CoreFiling True North Platform APIs.

The server can be configured with your OAuth 2 client ID and secret. It performs the OAuth 2 authorization code grant against the CoreFiling OAuth 2 server and maintains the bearer token needed for API access in the http session.

If no credentials are configured it defaults to the demonstration client.

All API requests made by the UI are proxied through this server which adds the token to the request.


To run the server you need an OAuth 2 client ID and secret for the CoreFiling Platform. The credentials for this are passed to the server via environment variables CLIENT_ID and CLIENT_SECRET.

Add this package as a dependency of your project:

yarn add @cfl/simple-platform-server

Then add it as a script in package.json:

"scripts": {
    "start": "simple-platform-server --staticDir www -appName name-of-your-app"

And run the server with something like

$ yarn start

You can then visit your app at http://localhost:8080/name-of-your-app/. The first time you do it will redirect you to the CoreFiling platform login page. Once you are logged in the application should run normally.

Your app consists of HTML and JavaScript files in the --staticDir directory.

Customize the port number listened to by setting environment variable PORT or by adding a --port command-line option. Note that overriding the port will prevent login if the port no longer matches a registered redirect URI for the application. The default credentials support a redirect URI of 'http://localhost:8080/*' for testing.


APIs are available with URLs starting with /api/name/v1/. For example, the base URL of the Document Service is http://localhost:8080/api/document-service/v1/.

Additional URLs recognised by the server are

  • /auth/logout to log the user out;
  • /api/user provides information about the currently logged-in user;
  • /api/apps provides information for the apps menu.

The last two are exceptions to the other API endpoints because they are supplied by the gateway itself, not a backend service.
