A Scala typesafe config wrapper over the Tokens library that is used for STUPS authentication

Scala-Typesafe Config STUPS AccessTokens Support Build Status

Is a small wrapper around Tokens with autoconfiguration support in Scala applications using Typesafe Config. The intention is to make it very easy to get access token details, especially when using OAuth2 via stups.

The project has minimal dependencies so it can easily be integrated into various Scala projects.


sbt compile


Add the following to your build.sbt when using SBT.

libraryDependencies += "org.zalando" %% "scala-typesafe-config-tokens" % "0.2.0"

You will also need to add the following repository

resolvers += Resolver.jcenterRepo

Currently built for Scala 2.11 and Scala 2.12


Place the following in application.conf in your resources folder (create it if doesn't exist)

tokens {

  tokenConfigurationList = [{

This is a proper typesafe config, so you can for example use environment variable substitutions, i.e.


Below is a table of the configuration options

With a configuration in place, you can then need to create an instance of org.zalando.stups.tokens.AccessTokenFactory. By default the AccessTokenFactory will load the config using ConfigFactory.load() however you can provide your own instance of config.

For typical usage you would do something like this

import org.zalando.stups.tokens.AccessTokenFactory

object AccessTokensInstance extends AccessTokenFactory()

// And then to get your access tokens you would do



Please make sure that you format the code using scalafmt. You can do this by running scalafmt in sbt before committing. See scalafmt for more info.
