In 2016, I started internal projects for my own company and one was to develop an OAuth2 authorization service to be used and deployd as a cloud service.
The purpose of the authorization service was to provide me a way to secure a set of RESTful services I also planned to develop. I was thinking of RESTful service for internal applications for time-reporting, invoices, customer care, etc.
#Original project goal
The project had some initial goals such as it should be distributed and hosted as a cloud-based service in IBM Cloud, now migrated to Microsoft Azure and;
It was also obvious that I would need to develop an administration client, a web application, to be able to manage the registration of client applications, signing up user accounts, managing scopes and normal basic maintenance.
The goal of the administration client was that it should be distributed and hosted as a cloud-based service in IBM Cloud, now migrated to Microsoft Azure and;
#Project outcome The project overall was successful, I learned a lot and today I have much better understanding after numerous rounds of redesign, refactoring etc, and the most difficult part is to stop re-design it when I see new way of solving problems that I want to learn.

The administration client is not finished yet if ever but you can se the code at:
