Common Notes

  1. You are required to utilize a unique client id for every client.
  2. The client id on this page is merely an example and you can theoretically use any alphanumeric string.
  3. You should not use the client secret in this example, We strongly recommend reading the Generating Client Secrets guide instead.

Specific Notes

Important Note: Proxmox requires you create the Realm prior to adding the provider. This is not covered in this guide.


This example makes the following assumptions:

  • Application Root URL:
  • Authelia Root URL:
  • Client ID: proxmox
  • Client Secret: proxmox_client_secret
  • Realm authelia



To configure Proxmox to utilize Authelia as an OpenID Connect 1.0 Provider:

  1. Visit Datacenter
  2. Visit Permission
  3. Visit Realms
  4. Add an OpenID Connect Server
  5. Set the following values:
    1. Issuer URL:
    2. Realm: authelia
    3. Client ID: proxmox
    4. Client Key: proxmox_client_secret
    5. Username Claim preferred_username
    6. Scopes: openid profile email
    7. Enable Autocreate Users if you want users to automatically be created in Proxmox.


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

- id: proxmox
  description: Proxmox
  secret: '$plaintext$proxmox_client_secret'
  public: false
  authorization_policy: two_factor
    - openid
    - profile
    - email
  userinfo_signing_algorithm: none
