Proper OpenID Connect support? (port new app from Owncloud?)


After the disappointment with Gluu (e.g. their use of a for pay middle layer), there hasn’t been much progress on implementing an OpenID Connect auth client in Nextcloud it seems.

However there seems to be some recent work on something like that for Owncloud, see:

Might be worth a look if it can be ported easily?

Contrary to the User_saml app it also seems to support additional user attributes like groups etc.

Or am I misunderstanding the functionality of it?


Strange that there seems so little interest in this, as OpenID Connect is the standard many webservices are using, and it is also relatively easy to set up your own provider with:

Or Keycloak etc.

It also seems like the repository mentioned above was updated to work with Nextcloud12 & maybe 13.

There are also several options to integrate with popular CMS.

Edit: There seems to be a further fork:


I definitely don’t understand why nobody cares about this feature… When you know how much information ID provider like Google and Co are stealing when you use this kind of authentication, it seems to me like it is a must have for helping people leaving google.

Some people are talking about it here (Enable SSO with OAuth 2 (for Azure AD and Google Apps))


I am very interested in this. It seems like the social login app would solve part of it at least, but there doesn’t seem to be much info out there for people who haven’t memorized pages of standards, terms, etc. I am trying to use Keycloak as an identity server with Nextcloud and a few other things.
