Google - OIDC

In order to use Google as an IdP to authenticate the Akeyless Vault via OIDC, you need to follow the below steps.

Create an OAuth Client ID

  1. Visit the Google API Console.

  2. Go to Credentials > Create Credentials > OAuth Client ID.

  3. For the Application Type selects Web Application, for the Authorized redirect URIs set https://auth.akeyless.io/oidc/callback and click Create.

  1. Once the OAuth Client ID has been created, you need to obtain the Client ID, Client secret:
  1. In order to bind the OAuth Client ID with your Akeyless Vault account, you need to create an OIDC Authentication Method using either CLI or UI, as described below.

Create OIDC Authentication Method - CLI

akeyless create-auth-method-oidc --name 'Google-OIDC' --issuer https://accounts.google.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 (if no profile name is provided the default will be configured):
akeyless configure --access-id <your-access-id> --access-type oidc --profile 'google-oidc'
  1. Now, you can run any Akeyless CLI command and be authenticated with Google:
akeyless list-items --profile google-oidc
