akeyless create-auth-method-oidc --name 'My Auth0 app' --issuer https://{your-auth0-domain}.auth0.com} --client-id {your-client-id}  --client-secret {your-client-secret} --unique-identifier {your-unique-identifier (e.g 'email' or 'username'')}

Login with OIDC - CLI

  1. You should configure a new profile with your Access-ID from the previous step and OIDC type (In case profile name is not provided the default profile will be configured):
akeyless configure --access-id <your-access-id> --access-type oidc --profile 'auth0-app'

akeyless list-items --profile auth0-app
