Connecting using OpenId Connect

If your authentication provider is compatible with OpenID connect, you can allow your users to authenticate to WorkAdventure using their credentials from your authentication provider. By connecting to an external OpenID provider, WorkAdventure allows users to use their existing login information from that provider to access the WorkAdventure service, making it easier and more convenient for them to log in. This also provides an additional layer of security, as the authentication is handled by your provider, rather than WorkAdventure itself.

To configure your provider, you will have to fill these 5 input fields:

  • Application name: name of your SSO settings for WorkAdventure, it does not affect the OpenId connection protocol.
  • Application id: ID of your SSO OpenId provider. This information is provided by your provider.
  • Application secret: Secret of your SSO OpenId provider. This information is provided by your provider.
  • OpenId SSO Domain: URL of your provider. Your OpenId SSO provider should have well-know configuration setting defined URL: /.well-known/openid-configuration. For example for the Google OpenId provider, the well-know configuration URL is So the OpenId domain is
  • Scope: Scope available for your OpenId provider (openid, profile, email...). You should at least put the "openid" scope.
