How to add user claims as custom header of login response of WSO2 API Manager

WSO2 API Manager is a complete solution for publishing APIs, creating and managing a developer community and for scalably routing API traffic. It leverages proven, production-ready, integration, security and governance components from the WSO2 Enterprise Service Bus, WSO2 Identity Server, and WSO2 Governance Registry. In addition, as it is also powered by the WSO2 Business Activity Monitor, the WSO2 API Manager is ready for massively scalable deployment immediately.

Sometimes users may want to get some user claims as response headers of login call response message. Let say if you have your own implementation of JDBC User store manager you might have different user claims. So here we will see how we can use configurations to retrieve them as headers. This is bit complex use case which might not use by each and every one. I did this post because we support this feature and for my future reference.

In the identity.xml add following section (with the claims you need)

When you define the claim - DisplayName will appear as the HTTP Header name in the response.


 Send curl request as follows :
curl -v -X POST -H "Authorization: Basic Z3pidExIS3NsTVU2dm82dXVmZExcvxcvcZDRU9ZYTpkUzFydFRSWjlVMnIwX241bzkyRk9WTlpldFVh" -H "Content-Type: application/x-www-form-urlencoded;charset=UTF-8" -d "grant_type=password&username=admin&password=admin" http://localhost:8280/login/

This is the response.
< HTTP/1.1 200 OK
< Content-Type: application/json;charset=UTF-8
< Cache-Control: no-store
< Email:
< Gender: male
< Pragma: no-cache
< Server: WSO2 Carbon Server
