Before You Begin

You are required to utilize a unique client id and a unique and random client secret for all OpenID Connect relying parties. You should not use the client secret in this example, you should randomly generate one yourself. You may also choose to utilize a different client id, it’s completely up to you.

This example makes the following assumptions:

  • Application Root URL:
  • Authelia Root URL:
  • Client ID: nextcloud
  • Client Secret: nextcloud_client_secret



To configure Nextcloud to utilize Authelia as an OpenID Connect Provider:

  1. Install the Nextcloud OpenID Connect Login app
  2. Add the following to the Nextcloud config.php configuration:
$CONFIG = array (
    'allow_user_to_change_display_name' => false,
    'lost_password_link' => 'disabled',
    'oidc_login_provider_url' => '',
    'oidc_login_client_id' => 'nextcloud',
    'oidc_login_client_secret' => 'nextcloud_client_secret',
    'oidc_login_auto_redirect' => false,
    'oidc_login_end_session_redirect' => false,
    'oidc_login_button_text' => 'Log in with Authelia',
    'oidc_login_hide_password_form' => false,
    'oidc_login_use_id_token' => true,
    'oidc_login_attributes' => array (
        'id' => 'preferred_username',
        'name' => 'name',
        'mail' => 'email',
        'groups' => 'groups',
    'oidc_login_default_group' => 'oidc',
    'oidc_login_use_external_storage' => false,
    'oidc_login_scope' => 'openid profile email groups',
    'oidc_login_proxy_ldap' => false,
    'oidc_login_disable_registration' => true,
    'oidc_login_redir_fallback' => false,
    'oidc_login_alt_login_page' => 'assets/login.php',
    'oidc_login_tls_verify' => true,
    'oidc_create_groups' => false,
    'oidc_login_webdav_enabled' => false,
    'oidc_login_password_authentication' => false,
    'oidc_login_public_key_caching_time' => 86400,
    'oidc_login_min_time_between_jwks_requests' => 10,
    'oidc_login_well_known_caching_time' => 86400,
    'oidc_login_update_avatar' => false,


The following YAML configuration is an example Authelia client configuration for use with Nextcloud which will operate with the above example:

- id: nextcloud
  description: NextCloud
  secret: nextcloud_client_secret
  public: false
  authorization_policy: two_factor
    - openid
    - profile
    - email
    - groups
  userinfo_signing_algorithm: none
