OpenIdConnect serves as a client for the OpenIdConnect flow.

Application configuration example:

'components' => [
    'authClientCollection' => [
        'class' => 'yii\authclient\Collection',
        'clients' => [
            'google' => [
                'class' => 'yii\authclient\OpenIdConnect',
                'issuerUrl' => '',
                'clientId' => 'google_client_id',
                'clientSecret' => 'google_client_secret',
                'name' => 'google',
                'title' => 'Google OpenID Connect',
    // ...

This class requires spomky-labs/jose library to be installed for JWS verification. This can be done via composer:

composer require --prefer-dist "spomky-labs/jose:~5.0.6"

Note: if you are using well-trusted OpenIdConnect provider, you may disable $validateJws, making installation of spomky-labs/jose library redundant, however it is not recommended as it violates the protocol specification.

Property Details

$allowedJwsAlgorithms public property

JWS algorithms, which are allowed to be used. These are used by spomky-labs/jose library for JWS validation/decryption. Make sure spomky-labs/jose supports the particular algorithm before adding it here.

public array $allowedJwsAlgorithms = ['HS256''HS384''HS512''ES256''ES384''ES512''RS256''RS384''RS512''PS256''PS384''PS512']
$configParamsCacheKeyPrefix public property

The prefix for the key used to store \yii\authclient\configParams data in cache. Actual cache key will be formed addition \yii\authclient\id value to it.

See also \yii\authclient\cache.

public string $configParamsCacheKeyPrefix 'config-params-'
$issuerUrl public property

OpenID Issuer (provider) base URL, e.g.

public string $issuerUrl null
$scope public property
public $scope 'openid'
$validateJws public property

Whether to validate/decrypt JWS received with Auth token. Note: this functionality requires spomky-labs/jose composer package to be installed. You can disable this option in case of usage of trusted OpenIDConnect provider, however this violates the protocol rules, so you are doing it on your own risk.

public boolean $validateJws true
