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: proxmox
  • Client Secret: proxmox_client_secret



To configure Proxmox to utilize Authelia as an OpenID Connect 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: anything you wish
    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: proxmox_client_secret
  public: false
  authorization_policy: two_factor
    - openid
    - profile
    - email
  userinfo_signing_algorithm: none
