Configure your app

After successfully creating your Authmaker instance, configure your existing Ember application to work with Authmaker.

Install addons

Authmaker works with ember-simple-auth to allow easy implementation of authentication and authorization in your app. From your Ember application directory, install ember-simple-auth and then authmaker-simple-auth:

$ ember install ember-simple-auth
$ ember install authmaker-ember-simple-auth

Add Authmaker config

Open config/environment.js and include the configuration details provided by Authmaker when you created your instance. These will be unique to your project. (Make sure to use the local configuration while in development.)


 if (environment === 'development') {
      // this object will be *UNIQUE* for your instance
      ENV.authmaker = {
      domainUrl: "https://my-app-name.authmaker.com",
      redirectUri: "http://localhost:4200/login",
      clientId: "yourClientId"


Add ApplicationRouteMixin

Generate an application route if you do not already have one:

$ ember g route application

Include the ApplicationRouteMixin that ember-simple-auth provides, as shown below:

import Ember from 'ember';
import ApplicationRouteMixin from 'ember-simple-auth/mixins/application-route-mixin';

export default Ember.Route.extend(ApplicationRouteMixin, {

Add DataAdapterMixin

Next, generate an application adapter if you do not already have one:

$ ember g adapter application

In order to automatically include authorization headers on all outgoing requests to the server, we need to include the DataAdapterMixin provided by ember-simple-auth in our application adapter. Add the following to app/adapters/application.js:

import DS from 'ember-data';
import DataAdapterMixin from 'ember-simple-auth/mixins/data-adapter-mixin';

export default DS.JSONAPIAdapter.extend(DataAdapterMixin, {
    authorizer: 'authorizer:application',
