Add HTTP Intercepter in Angular 4

Creating a HTTP Intercepter

Angular V4.4.4
We need to inherit the ‘HttpIntercepter’ class and override the ‘intercept’ method to be able to intercept all the HTTP requests you make using ‘HttpClient’.

import {Injectable} from '@angular/core';
import {Observable} from 'rxjs/Observable';
// import 'rxjs/add/operator/do';
import {HttpEvent, HttpResponse, HttpInterceptor, HttpHandler, HttpRequest} from '@angular/common/http';
export class AuthInterceptor implements HttpInterceptor {
  constructor(private auth: AuthService) {}
  intercept(req: HttpRequest, next: HttpHandler): Observable> {
    // Clone the request as it is immutable. You can also save the original request in the following way
    // const prevReq = req.clone();
    const authReq = req.clone({headers: req.headers.set('Authorization', 'Bearer ' + getToken())});
    // or you can use the shorter version of the same.
    //const authReq = req.clone({setHeaders: {Authorization: 'Bearer ' + getToken()}});
    // Pass on the cloned request instead of the original request.
    return next.handle(authReq);
    /* you can test the above function by doing a console.log() here. For this you will need to import 'HttpResponse' and the 'do' operator.
     .do(event => {
        if (event instanceof HttpResponse) {    

Updating app.module.ts

Now you need to include the ‘AuthInterceptor’ class as part of our main app module providers after you have imported ‘HTTP_INTERCEPTORS’.

import {NgModule} from '@angular/core';
import {AuthInterceptor} from './auth-interceptor'
import {HTTP_INTERCEPTORS} from '@angular/common/http';

  providers: [{
    useClass: AuthInterceptor,
    multi: true,
export class AppModule {}
