Connect using OAuth 2.0

If your service supports OAUTH 2.0, you can connect it to the Connectis Identity Broker.

Please follow these steps:

  • Familiarise yourself with the OAUTH 2.0 protocol, see OAUTH 2.0 information.

  • Depending on your type of application, choose the applicable flow: Authorisation Code Grant flow for regular web apps running on a server or Implicit Grant flow, which is suitable for single-page applications running in a browser.

  • Configure your service to use the appropriate value for the response_type parameter in the authorisation request to select the required flow. Use “code” for Authorisation Code Grant or “token” for Implicit Grant.

  • Before a connection can be established between your service and the Connectis Identity Broker, Connectis needs to know the following credentials of your service:

    • Client_id and the client_secret (only for Authorisation Code Grant flow) parameters. Contact Connectis for instructions on how to define these.

    • Redirect_uri, a URL on your service where the response will be sent.

As soon as the minimum information as described above is defined on your side, send it to technicalsupport@connectis.com to start enabling the connection.

  • Connectis will provide the credentials of the Connectis Identity Broker containing all the endpoints required for your chosen flow (e.g. authorise endpoint, access_token endpoint, etc.). Configure it in your service.

Contact the supplier of your service if you need additional help in configuring OAUTH 2.0 connections on your service. Contact technicalsupport@connectis.com if you need to troubleshoot your connection.
