oidc-provider is an OpenID Provider implementation of OpenID Connect. It allows to export a complete mountable or standalone OpenID Provider implementation. This implementation does not force you into any data models or persistance stores, instead it expects you to provide an adapter. A generic in memory adapter is available to get you started.
The provided examples also implement simple user interaction views but those are not forced on you as they do not come as part of the exported application, instead you are encouraged to implement your own unique-looking and functioning user flows.

Updates to draft and experimental specification versions are released as MINOR library versions,
if you utilize these specification implementations consider using the tilde
~ operator in your
package.json since breaking changes may be introduced as part of these version updates.
You may follow an example step by step setup (recommended), or run and experiment with an example server that's part of the repo (if you can follow the structure, if not check the step by step).

Migrating from 0.11.x release? Quite a bit has changed along the way to end up with a stable and sustainable API, see the CHANGELOG for list of changes and how to change your existing 0.11 providers to 1.0
Configuration and Initialization
oidc-provider allows to be extended and configured in various ways to fit a variety of uses. See the available configuration.
const Provider = ;const issuer = '';const configuration =// ... see available options /docs/configuration.md;const clients = ;const oidc = issuer configuration;oidc;
oidc-provider uses the debug module internally to log information about various states of authentication requests, errors and grants. To see all these set the DEBUG environment variable to oidc-provider:* when launching your app.
There is no filter on what is included in the debug output, since it may end-user Personally identifiable information or client credentials it's use is only advised for debugging, not regular logging. Use emitted events to cherry pick the one's of interest to your flows and form your own logs aware of what should and should not be a part of a logged message.
Your oidc-provider instance is an event emitter, using event handlers you can hook into the various
actions and i.e. emit metrics or that react to specific triggers. In some scenarios you can even
change the defined behavior.
See the list of available emitted event names and their description.
