This brief provides conceptual information on OpenID Connect. OpenID Connect is a simple identity layer on top of the OAuth 2.0 protocol. It enables clients to verify the identity of the end user-based on the authentication performed by an authorization server, as well as to obtain basic profile information about the end user.
This brief provides configuration and usage information for authenticating webservices with the OpenID Connect protocol, referred to as OIDC in this document, with HxGN EAM. This document will detail the steps necessary to configure both HxGN EAM and ADFS for OpenID Connect authentication. This document will also provide information on using OpenID Connect ID tokens to access webservices in HxGN EAM.
All the screenshots and the setup related to ADFS configuration in this document are from ADFS Management version 10.0.0.0 installed on Windows Server 2019.
If the authorization server used is not ADFS, see the documentation of the corresponding authorization server for configuring OpenID Connect clients and configuring the custom claims.
