scheme-oauth2

The OAuth2 Schema implements authentication based on authentication via external OAuth2/OIDC services. The chain of trust is based on the Glewlwyd’s administrator trusting the OAuth2/OIDC service to authenticate Glewlwyd’s users. Therefore Glewlwyd’s administrator must enter only trustable external providers. It is strongly suggested to test the providers authentication with your configuration before telling your users to do so.

Installation

In the administration page, go to Parameters/Authentication schemes and add a new scheme by clicking on the + button. In the modal, enter a name and a display name (the name must be unique among all authentication scheme instances), and a scheme session expiration in seconds. Select the type OAuth2 in the Type drop-down button.

Below is the definition of all parameters.

Name

Name (identifier) of the scheme, must be unique among all the scheme instances, even of a different type.

Display name

Name of the instance displayed to the user.

Expiration (seconds)

Number of seconds to expire a valid session.

Max use per session (0: unlimited)

Maximum number of times a valid authentication with this scheme is possible. This is an additional parameter used to enforce the security of the session and forbid to reuse this session for other authentications.

Allow users to register

If this option is unchecked, only administrator can register this scheme for every user via the administration page.

Redirect URI

Callback URI that will be used in the OAuth2/OIDC flow. This option is filled by default with what is supposed to be the expected redirect URI: https:///callback.html. If you know what you do, you can change this value.

Session duration for authentication (seconds)

Duration of the session for users to authenticate in the external provider, i.e. the maximum time they can spend between their click on the login with button and when they get redirected to callback.html with a valid authentication.

Authorized providers list

Providers used for external authentication in Glewlwyd. The administrator can add a mainstream provider or a personalized provider. If you choose a mainstream providers, some settings will be filled but you must fill at least client_id and client_secret (if necessary) with your own. You can choose a mainstream provider and then change its settings if you need. The mainstream provider list is here to facilitate the administrator’s job but its settings may be obsolete or not fitted to your needs. mainstream provider settings are configurable in the config.json file. By default, Glewlwyd comes with a list of mainstream providers such as Google, Facebook or Microsoft. If you think another mainstream provider should be present on this list, feel free to send a pull request.

Below is the list of settings for a provider.
