How to disable spring-security login screen?


I’m using spring-boot-starter-security dependency, to make use of several classes that come with spring-security. But as I want to integrate it in an existing vaadin application, I only want to make use of the classes, and not of the default login/auth screen of spring.

How can I disable this screen?

I cannot make any configurations by extending WebSecurityConfigurerAdapter as my main entry class already extends SpringBootServletInitializer. Also, vaadin applications basically run on the same URL path all the time and use internal navigation.

public class MyApp extends SpringBootServletInitializer { 

        protected SpringApplicationBuilder configure(SpringApplicationBuilder application) {
            return application.sources(MyApp.class);

        public static void main(String[] args) {
  , args);

So, what could I do to disable the login screen, but though make use of spring security features?


The default security in Spring Boot is Basic. You could disable it by setting security.basic.enabled=false. More about this here and here.
