Keycloak setup

Written for Keycloak version 4.8.3-final, tested up to 13.0.1. Your mileage may vary.

From the Clients tab, add a new client for your Flarum instance (or use an existing one). Root URL should be the URL of your Flarum instance.

Add Keycloak client

In order to map Keycloak roles onto Flarum groups, you have to make roles visible from the userinfo endpoint. To this extent, add a mapper to your new client.

Create Keycloak mapper

Add role mapper to Keycloak client

From the Realm Settings tab, find the key used by the OpenId Connect workflow (by default, RS256). Copy the algorithm as well as the public key.

Find Keycloak keys

In the end, extension settings will be:

  • Server URL: the URL to your Keycloak instance, like Beware the "auth" with no trailing slash.
  • Realm: the authentication realm you created for your Flarum.
  • Client ID: the name of the client you created above.
  • Client Secret: defaults to client ID if you do not override.
  • Encryption algorithm: defaults to RS256.
  • Encryption key (or cert): you may copy here the content of what was displayed after you pressed the "Public key" button on Keycloak.
  • Role-to-group mapping: An associative array with roles as keys and group names as values, in JSON format. Example: {"ROLE_MEMBER":"Member","ROLE_MODERATOR":"Mods","ROLE_ADMIN":"Admin"}.
