Login with LINE


LINE Login can be used to authenticate users, or create new users based on their LINE account.

Here's how it works:

  1. User clicks login button, sending request to /v1/auth/line with client_id and redirect_uri
  2. Transmit redirects to LINE login page, which authenticates user and redirects back to Transmit.
  3. After validating the response, Transmit redirects back to your redirect_uri with a code.
  4. Your application sends the code to your backend, which exchanges it for a token.
  5. Upon a successful exchange, the user is logged in.

Step 1: Set up LINE credentials

From the LINE Developers Console, you'll need the following:

  • LINE account and Line Login channel for your app, if you don't already have them
  • Callback URL set to https://api.transmitsecurity.io/cis/auth/line/callback as described here
  • Applied Email address permission as described here
  • LINE Login Channel ID and Line Login Channel Secret

The LINE Login Channel ID and Channel Secret will be configured later in the Transmit Admin Portal.

Step 2: Enable LINE for app

  1. Login to the Transmit Admin Portal
  2. Go to Manage Experience > Authentication
  3. Expand the LINE settings.
  4. Fill in client ID and client secret using the LINE Login Channel ID and Channel Secret retrieved from LINE in Step 1.

Step 3: Add redirect URI to app

To redirect back to the redirect_uri provided in the initial request, it should be registered in your application settings in Transmit Admin Portal. From the Admin Portal under Applications, click on your application to edit your application settings and add this URI under Redirect URIs. If you don't already have an application, you'll need to create one first (see Create application).


Your application settings contain the Client ID and Client Secret for your application, which you'll need for Step 4 and 5.

Step 4: Initiate LINE login

Use a request like the one below to initiate an authentication flow using LINE, described in the sequence diagram above. The create_new_user parameter will determine if this flow applies to new users, or only to existing ones. If set to true (and public sign-ups are enabled for this application), a new user is created if no user is found for the email returned by LINE in the next step. The redirect_uri should correspond to the one added in step 3, and the client_id can be found from the Transmit Admin Portal in the application settings.


Upon successful authentication, the browser will be redirected to the redirect URI along with a code to exchange for tokens in the next step. For example, if https://domain.com/verify is your redirect URI, then Transmit will redirect to https://domain.com/verify?code=123abc. However, if an authentication error occurs after redirecting to LINE, the redirect URI will contain the error instead.

curl --request GET \
     --url 'https://api.transmitsecurity.io/cis/v1/auth/line?
     create_new_user=true' \
     --header 'Accept: application/json'

Step 5: Get user tokens

To exchange the code received from Transmit for an ID and access token, your server should send a POST request like the one below to the Transmit /oidc/token endpoint. Replace placeholders with the code you received in Step 4, your redirect URI, and your client credentials that can be found in your application settings from the Transmit Admin Portal.

curl -i -X POST \
  https://api.transmitsecurity.io/oidc/token \
  -H 'Content-Type: application/x-www-form-urlencoded' \
  -d client_id=CLIENT_ID \
  -d client_secret=CLIENT_SECRET \
  -d code=CODE \
  -d grant_type=authorization_code \
  -d redirect_uri=REDIRECT_URI
