The DEEP platform is sunsetting.

The DEEP-Hybrid-DataCloud project project has ended and its plaftform and software are being decomissioned during 2023, as they have been superseeded by the AI4EOSC platform and the AI4OS software stack.

Configure oidc-agent

oidc-agent is a tool to manage OpenID Connect tokens and make them easily usable from the command line.


Start oidc-agent:

$ eval $(oidc-agent)
$ oidc-gen

You will be asked for the name of the account to configure. Let’s call it deep-iam. After that you will be asked for the additional client-name-identifier, you should choose the option:


Then just click Enter to accept the default values for Space delimited list of scopes [openid profile offline_access]. After that, if everything has worked properly, you should see the following messages:

Registering Client ...
Generating account configuration ...

At this point you will be given a URL. You should visit it in the browser of your choice in order to continue and approve the registered client. For this you will have to login into your DEEP-IAM account and accept the permissions you are asked for.

Once you have done this you will see the following message:

The generated account config was successfully added to oidc-agent. You don't have to run oidc-add

Next time you want to start oidc-agent from scratch, you will only have to do:

$ eval $(oidc-agent)
oidc-add deep-iam
Enter encryption password for account config deep-iam: ********

You can print the token:

$ oidc-token deep-iam

Usage with orchent

You should set OIDC_SOCK (this is not needed, if you did it before):

$ eval $(oidc-agent)
$ oidc-add deep-iam

Set the agent account to be used with orchent and the ORCHENT_URL:

$ export ORCHENT_AGENT_ACCOUNT=deep-iam
$ export ORCHENT_URL=""
