Connect with Keycloak


Register an OIDC service with Keycloak

Keycloak is an open source software solution that provides single sign on (SSO) access, allowing users to authenticate once to access multiple services. It also allows for single sign out, which means that users only have to sign out once for several services and/or applications that use Keycloak.

Keycloak can also be used to authenticate users with existing OpenID Connect or SAML 2.0 Identity Providers. This can be done by configuring the Identity Provider through the Keycloak admin console.

The instructions below detail the configuration of AAF as an Identity Provider through Keycloak using the OpenID Connect protocol. The process includes the registration of a new service in AAF Federation Manager (Test).
