Micro-services Architecture with Oauth2 and JWT – Part 4 – Oauth2/Scopes

Micro-services Architecture with Oauth2 and JWT – Part 4 – Oauth2/Scopes

The last number of years I have been working in the area of migrating from legacy monolith (web) applications to a (micro) service oriented architecture (in my role of Java / DevOps / Infrastructure engineer). As this is too big of a subject to put in a single blog post, I will split this in 5 parts; (1) Overview, (2) Gateway, (3) Identity Provider, (4) Oauth2/Scopes, (5) Migrating from Legacy. Introduction Recap: In the previous articles we have seen where…

Glowing Bottle

Glowing Bottle

My daughter is quite artistic (as any proud parent would say), and created a wire animal in a bottle. For this bottle she wanted some lights at the bottom (inside), but… the requirement was that no wire may go through the glass (which would have made everything lots easier of course). By total coincidence, some weeks earlier I did order some wireless power transfer kits. They contain two coils and two little electronics regulator boards to send and receive wireless…

Jira can send new ticket/story creations using a web-hook to external tools. The web-hook sends a Jira specific JSON payload, no configuration options possible. The project you are looking at, consists…

3D Printed Lamp Covers

3D Printed Lamp Covers

My last electronics project was creating a LED dimmer for some dinner table lights. This all works fine, but the bare light bulbs were a bit bright to look at directly. The MVP (Minimal Viable Product) version to fix this problem consisted of some ugly paper strips, taped to the bulbs 😉 Even though this MVP version did help, it doesn’t look too good, so a long-term-solution was needed. The lamp fittings are metal, and have some ribs which make…

WiFi 240V AC Led Dimmer – Speech Controlled

WiFi 240V AC Led Dimmer – Speech Controlled

I wanted to build my own WiFi dimmer, to connect my dinner table lights to Alexa (Amazon Echo Dot). The used parts are an ESP8266 (I used a Wemos D1 Mini Clone), an ATTiny45, some sort of power module to supply 3.3 volt, and a zero-cross-detector / Triac dimmer module.
