Connect an OIDC Service

Register service

The AAF OpenID Provider (OP) satisfies the OIDC conformance testing framework and passes the Authorization Code flow. The AAF monitors the OP during business hours and responds to service interruption issues promptly.


If you have not done so already, please log into Federation Manager to get started.

Once you have clicked on ‘OpenID Connect’ on the ‘Connect a New Service’ page in Federation Manager, you will then be taken to the Register a New Service page:
