Documentation & Configuration

oidc-provider can be mounted to existing connect, express, fastify, hapi, or koa applications, see how. The provider allows to be extended and configured in various ways to fit a variety of uses. See the documentation and example folder.

import Provider from 'oidc-provider';
const configuration = {
  // refer to the documentation for other available configuration
  clients: [{
    client_id: 'foo',
    client_secret: 'bar',
    redirect_uris: [''],
    // ... other client properties

const oidc = new Provider('http://localhost:3000', configuration);

oidc.listen(3000, () => {
  console.log('oidc-provider listening on port 3000, check http://localhost:3000/.well-known/openid-configuration');


Collection of useful configuration use cases are available over at recipes.


oidc-provider instances are event emitters, using event handlers you can hook into the various actions and i.e. emit metrics that react to specific triggers. See the list of available emitted event names and their description.
