Authentication module for using OAuth 2.0/OpenID Connect for authentication access to the REST API

An authentication module is provided within the application server to authenticate using access tokens. The application server client uses the information from the authentication module to determine the access token for logging in on the server side.

For example, the authentication module can be used for Job servers that do not have a direct connection to the database but work against an application server.

To use the authentication module, ensure that authentication for accessing the REST API is set up using OAuth 2.0/OpenID Connect.

NOTE: If authentication is by access token, other authentication modules are excluded from use and the application server returns an error.

Authentication data for establishing a connection through the application server's REST API.

Module=Token;Url=<URL of the application server>;ClientId=<client-ID>;ClientSecret=<secret>;TokenEndpoint=<token endpoint>.

With the following parameters:

  • URL: URL of the application server

  • ClientId: Client ID for authentication at the token endpoint.

  • ClientSecret: Secret value for authentication at the token endpoint.

  • TokenEndpoint: URL of the token endpoint.

For more information about providing connection and authentication data to the application server for Job servers, see the One Identity Manager Configuration Guide.

Authenticating external applications on the application server using OAuth 2.0/OpenID Connect

To access the REST API in the application server through external applications, authentication is supported by the OAuth2.0/OpenID Connect and OAuth2.0/OpenID Connect (role-based) authentication modules. Ensure that authentication for the REST API is set up through OAuth 2.0/OpenID Connect.

To authenticate an external application using Oauth 2.0/Openid Connect in One Identity Manager

  1. Log in to the external identity provider, for example with Redistributable STS (RSTS), and get the access token.

  2. Ensure that the token is passed as the bearer token in the authentication header of all queries.

NOTE: The session must be handled by a bearer token when logging in using a session cookie. Clients accessing the REST API using the bearer token must therefore keep the cookie assigned during the first access and send it with subsequent accesses. Otherwise, a new session is established for each access, which costs a lot of resources.

OAuth 2.0/OpenID Connect authentication on the API Server

To use OAuth 2.0/OpenID Connect authentication for accessing the API Server's REST API, there is support for the OAuth2.0/OpenID Connect and OAuth2.0/OpenID Connect (role-based) authentication modules.

Authentication is done using the access token provided. The first time a request is made with a new access token, a session is established with that token and the authentication module. Further accesses with the same token use the same session. The validity period of the token is checked in the process.

Setting up OAuth 2.0/OpenID Connect authentication on the API Server

To set up authentication using OAuth 2.0/OpenID Connect

  • In the Designer, set the QBM | AppServer | AccessTokenAuth configuration parameter.

  • In the Designer, set the respective authentication module either OAuth 2.0/OpenID Connect or OAuth 2.0/OpenID Connect (role-based).

  • If the OAuth 2.0/OpenID Connect (role-based) authentication module is used, set the QBM | AppServer | AccessTokenAuth | RoleBased confguration parameter as well.

  • In the Designer, create the OAuth 2.0/OpenID Connect configuration and assign the configuration to the web application for the API Server.

  • The URL for the API Server must be declared.

    When the API Server is installed, an entry for the web application is created with the URL in the QBMWebApplication table. Check whether the URL (BaseURL column) is entered.
