OpenID Connect for the Neos CMS

This package provides an OpenID Connect (OIDC) "bridge" for Neos.

It provides sane defaults for the OIDC client package, and provides a way to match Neos backend users to OIDC users. Optionally users can be created on the fly if they don't exist yet.

Terms and Background

Before deploying OpenID Connect for your application, you should get familiar with the concepts. For a quick reminder, you should can the documentation of Flownative.OpenIdConnect.Client

Requirements

In order to use this plugin you need:

  • Neos CMS
  • an OIDC Identity Provider which provides auto discovery

Installation

The plugin is installed via Composer:

composer require flownative/openidconnect-neos

Configuration

This packages provies sane defaults for most of the configuration, suitable for Neos CMS.

The OIDC provider connection must be set up. The default configuration uses these environment variables:

  • OIDC_DISCOVERY_URI
  • OIDC_CLIENT_ID
  • OIDC_CLIENT_SECRET

You may of course set the values directly:

Flownative:
  OpenIdConnect:
    Client:
      services:
        neos:
          options:
            discoveryUri: '…'
            clientId: '…'
            clientSecret: '…'

And you must set up how roles are determined, see the next section.

Roles

Hard-coded roles

You may configure the provider as follows:

Neos:
  Flow:
    security:
      authentication:
        providers:
          'Neos.Neos:Backend':
            providerOptions:
              roles:
                - 'Neos.Neos:Editor'

That is the simplest way of configuring roles, but also very "static", no variation is possible.

Roles from Identity Token

The provider can extract the roles from the identity token values. The roles provided by the token must have the same identifier as in Neos.

Given that the identity token provides a claim called "https://flownative.com/roles", you may configure the provider as follows:

Neos:
  Flow:
    security:
      authentication:
        providers:
          'Neos.Neos:Backend':
            providerOptions:
              rolesFromClaims:
                - 'https://flownative.com/roles'

When a user logs in and her identity token has a value "https://flownative.com/roles" containing an array of Flow role identifiers, the OpenID Connect provider will automatically assign these roles.

Roles can be mapped in case their values don't match the required Flow role pattern (<Package-Key>:<Role>) or if multiple roles should be translated to a single role:

Neos:
  Flow:
    security:
      authentication:
        providers:
          'Neos.Neos:Backend':
            providerOptions:
              rolesFromClaims:
                -
                  name: 'https://flownative.com/roles'
                  mapping:
                    'role1': 'Some.Package:SomeRole1'
                    'role2': 'Some.Package:SomeOtherRole'
                    'role3': 'Some.Package:SomeRole'

You may specify multiple claim names which are all considered for compiling a list of roles.

Check logs for hints if things are not working as expected.

Roles from an Existing Account

If you use locally created Neos users (accounts with the same username which is provided by the identity token), the roles of that (persisted) account can be used:

Neos:
  Flow:
    security:
      authentication:
        providers:
          'Neos.Neos:Backend':
            providerOptions:
              addRolesFromExistingAccount: true

You may mix "rolesFromClaims" with "addRolesFromExistingAccount". In that case roles from claims and existing accounts will be merged.

Again, check the logs for hints if things are not working as expected.

Roles for Auto-Created Neos Users

In case auto-creation of users is enabled, the roles on the new user can be set by configuration:

Flownative:
  OpenIdConnect:
    Neos:
      autoCreateUser: true
      rolesForAutoCreatedUser:
        - 'Neos.Neos:Editor'

Note that you still must use (at least) one of the options to assign roles, namely "rolesFromClaims" and "addRolesFromExistingAccount".

Optional settings

You can set the JWT cookie name if you need to use a different name.

Neos:
    Flow:
        security:
            authentication:
                providers:
                    'Neos.Neos:Backend':
                        providerOptions:
                            jwtCookieName: 'flownative_oidc_jwt'

If your OpenID Connect provider does not return a username, you can map it like this:

Flownative:
  OpenIdConnect:
    Neos:
      identityValueMapping:
        'username': 'email'

So far this assumes you locally create Neos users with the same username as the OIDC provider returns. You can enable auto-creation of Neos users like this:

Flownative:
  OpenIdConnect:
    Neos:
      autoCreateUser: true
      identityValueMapping:
        'firstname': 'https://flownative.com/given_name'
        'lastname': 'https://flownative.com/family_name'

The mapping of firstname and lastname is needed in case those are not returned with those names by your OIDC provider. They are used for the created users.

Debugging

  • Check the security and system log for messages, there is probably something helpful there.
  • Use ./flow configuration:show --path Flownative.OpenIdConnect to check the settings and look for things you might need to adjust.
  • Repeat that step with the Neos.Flow.security settings.
