OpenID Connect
OpenID Connect is an open-standard that allows clients of all types, including Web-based, mobile, and JavaScript, to request and receive information about authenticated sessions and users.
To set up OpenID Connect authentication, follow the steps below:
Step 1: Login to PlexTrac as a global admin or tenant admin.
Step 2: Navigate to the Account Admin page. Click Security under "Security & User Management".
Step 3: Click Authentication Methods under "Authentication".
Step 4: From the OAuth Providers tab, elect "OpenID Connect" from the dropdown menu under "Authentication Providers."
Step 5: Enter values for the following:
  • .well-known Configuration: The URL to provider's .well-known configuration.
  • Identifier: The identifier provided by the IDP.
  • Secret: The secret value provided by the IDP.
PlexTrac makes a request to the provided .well-known Configuration’s authorization endpoint with the following query string parameters:
  • client_id
  • redirect_uri
  • response_type=code
  • scope=openid email
  • state
Validate that the authorization endpoint supports the “code” response type, as well as the “openid” and “email” scopes.
Step 6: Enable this service by toggling the Enabled button to the right. Click Save.
Step 7: Go back to "Security & User Management" and click Users.
Step 8: Under the column header "Authentication Provider," select the desired user and change value to "OpenID Connect."
Each user has to be configured individually.
