Install and configure oidc-agent¶
1. Installing oidc-agent¶
oidc-agent is a tool to manage OpenID Connect tokens and make them easily usable from the command line. Installation instructions and full documentation can be found here.
2. Configuring oidc-agent with DEEP-IAM¶
- DEEP-IAM registration
$ eval $(oidc-agent)
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 ... accepted
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: ******** success
You can print the token:
$ oidc-token deep-iam
2.1 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:
$ export ORCHENT_AGENT_ACCOUNT=deep-iam
You also need to set ORCHENT_URL, e.g:
$ export ORCHENT_URL="https://paas.cloud.cnaf.infn.it/orchestrator"
