Flarum OpenID Connect Client
OpenID Connect client/SSO for Flarum
This extension enables users to login with an OpenID Connect (OIDC) provider. This method can be set to the only allowed method to login (SSO mode) or used as a complementary login method (like OAuth providers)
⚠ Warning! This README might be outdated! Please always refer to the docs to ensure you are reading the latest update!
Mostly for two reasons:
- You can connect to any auth system, written in any language, as long as they are compliant with the OpenID Connect specs. My other SSO extension, which is free, allows you to connect to any auth system written in PHP.
- It requires only configuration in the admin panel and zero code. The SSO extension requires integration with your auth system through plugins in addition to extension configuration.

Implemented OpenID Connect features
The extension relies on
maicol07/OpenID-Connect-PHP, a fork of
JuliusPC/OpenID-Connect-PHP. You can see a list of OIDC drafts and documents that have been implemented. However, the following features aren't already implemented in the extension at the time of writing (v1.0) and they can't be set/used:
- OpenID Connect Dynamic Client Registration 1.0
- RFC 7009: OAuth 2.0 Token Revocation
- RFC 7662: OAuth 2.0 Token Introspection
- Draft: OAuth 2.0 Authorization Server Issuer Identifier in Authorization Response
How does it work?
The extension uses the authorization code flow variant of OpenID Connect. I suggest checking these resources to learn more about OIDC flow here:
- OpenID Connect website
- Explanation on the different OIDC flows
- Illustrated flow example
- Video about OIDC flow
Will it work on WordPress and other CMS?
Yes, as long as you're using a plugin that provides OpenID Connect features. For WordPress, you can try this one (not tested): https://wordpress.org/plugins/miniorange-oauth-20-server/
