Obtaining the user’s geodata#

The login procedure can be used to obtain data about the country and city where the user is located, and based on this, flexibly configure the login rules, for example, to prohibit login from abroad, activate the second authentication factor, etc.

To do this, use the following classes and methods in the login procedures:

  1. LGeoData class with getCountry() and getCity() functions.

    public class LGeoData {
        *  Get IP address country
        * @return - country or null if country not specified.
        public final String getCountry();
        *  Get IP address city
        * @return - city or null if city not specified.
        public final String getCity();
  2. geoData() method in Context.

     * Get geo data of user IP address
     * @return - geo data.
     LGeoData geoData();


    For the method to work, you need to import the LGeoData class.

    import com.identityblitz.idp.login.authn.flow.LGeoData

import com.identityblitz.idp.login.authn.flow.LGeoData;

LGeoData geoData = _ctx.geoData();
String country = geoData.getCountry();
logger.trace("IP location: country - {}, city - {}, factor - {}", country , geoData.getCity());
