Configure Keycloak as SSO

Keycloak Configuration

On Keycloak side, you'll have to create a new application:

  • Step 1: create a new OpenID Connect client, and set the client ID

  • Step 2: Select the Client authentication

  • Step 3: Configure the redirect URI

You can configure it as the following: http(s)://<Console host>(:<Console port>)/oauth/callback/<OAuth2 config name>

For example, if you deployed Console locally using the name keycloak in your configuration file, you can use http://localhost:8080/oauth/callback/keycloak, like on the screenshot below.

For more details on Console redirect URI for OAuth2, you can check the documentation.

  • Step 4: Get the client secret in the Credentials tab

tip

You can find the .well-known at: http://<Keycloak host>:<Keycloak port>/realms/<realm name>/.well-known/openid-configuration.

Console Configuration

On Console side, you can add the snippet below to your configuration file. You have to replace the client ID, client secret, and tenant ID, by what you got during the previous steps.

platform-config.yaml
sso:
oauth2:
- name: "keycloak"
default: true
client-id: "<client ID>"
client-secret: "<client secret>"
openid:
issuer: "http://<Keycloak host>:<Keycloak port>/realms/<realm name>"

Groups Configuration

If you want to use the external groups mapping to map groups between your Conduktor Console instance and Keycloak, you must create a scope and add it to your Keycloak application:

  • Step 1: Create the scope and configure the mapper to Group Membership

You can add the claim to the token you want. In this example, the UserInfo.

  • Step 2: Add the scope to the application

Then, you must set the property groups-claim to "groups" in the Console configuration file. Below is the full snippet for your configuration file:

platform-config.yaml
sso:
oauth2:
- name: "keycloak"
default: true
client-id: "<client ID>"
client-secret: "<client secret>"
groups-claim: "groups"
openid:
issuer: "http://<Keycloak host>:<Keycloak port>/realms/<realm name>"

External Groups Mapping

Now that your configuration is finished, you can setup the mapping between Keycloak and Console groups. That way, when a user will log in, they will be automatically added to the corresponding Console groups, based on the groups they belong to in Keycloak.

The value you need to put as external group is the name of the Keycloak group.

caution

If you've selected Full group path in the mapper details of the scope, you will need to use the full path instead of the name of the group.
