Access control: SSO with OpenID Connect

Linkurious supports any OpenID Connect compatible provider as external authentication providers.

What is OpenID Connect?

OpenID Connect is an identity layer on top of the OAuth2 protocol. It allows applications (like Linkurious) to verify the identity of End-User based on the authentication performed by an Authorization Server, as well as to obtain basic profile information about the End-User in an interoperable manner.


To set up Linkurious authentication with an OpenID Connect provider, you need to obtain the following parameters fro the provider:

  • authorizationURL, e.g.
  • tokenURL, e.g.
  • clientID, e.g.
  • clientSecret, e.g. E09dQxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxSN

Example access.oauth2 configuration with an OpenID Connect provider:

"access": {
  // [...] 
  "oauth2": {
    "enabled": true,
    "provider": "openidconnect",
    "authorizationURL": "",
    "tokenURL": "",
    "clientID": "",
