Thanks for the great article. I’ve used the information above in an existing Symfony app I’ve developed. I am getting a 401 “Full authentication is required to access this resource.”. When opening the /login url, I can see the browser redirecting to my Okta domain and back. It appears to come back to the callback function and redirects to a page that is secured (with Access Control - ROLE_USER). The page still appears with the 401 exception message as above. Is the example missing a Guard Authenticator? From my experience, its required for the authentication workflow.

I’d be interested to hear others’ experience with the solution above, but if you can advise, I’d be grateful.

$user->setToken($accessToken);

This is returning “Notice: Undefined variable: accessToken”

Change $user->setToken($accessToken); to $user->setToken($token);
