This document is work in progress and is only visible to those at WSO2.

This document covers the steps on how WSO2 IoT Server works with WSO2 Identity Server's OpenID Connect authentication. You can follow the same steps to configure another Identity server other than WSO2 Identity server.

Let's get started! Follow the steps given below:


Installing OpenID Authenticator Feature in IoT Server

To add the OpenID Connected authenticator to WSO2 IoT Server, you need to install the org.wso2.carbon.identity.application.authenticator.oidc.server.feature.

Follow the steps given below to install the OpenID Connect application authenticator using the Maven execution script.

  1. Create a file named openid-extension-deployer.xml in the <IOTS_HOME> directory.
  2. Copy the configurations given below to the openid-extension-deployer.xml file you created.

          <!-- Before adding ANYTHING in here, please start a discussion on the dev list.
                Ideally the Axis2 build should only use Maven central (which is available
                by default) and nothing else. We had troubles with other repositories in
                the past. Therefore configuring additional repositories here should be
                considered very carefully. -->

       </properties>
    </project>
  3. Navigate to the <IOTS_HOME> directory via the terminal.

    cd <IOTS_HOME>
  4. Execute the Maven script to install the org.wso2.carbon.identity.application.authenticator.oidc.server.feature.

    mvn clean install -f openid-extension-deployer.xml

Configuring the WSO2 IoT Server IdP

You need to add the federated OpenID Connect authentication configurations to the WSO2 IoT Server's default Identity Provider (IdP) configurations. Follow the steps given below:

  1. Open the <IOTS_HOME>/conf/identity/identity-providers/iot_default.xml file.
  2. Add the following configurations before the <FederatedAuthenticatorConfigs> tag.

    <IsEnabled>true</IsEnabled>
  3. Add the folowing configurations inside the <FederatedAuthenticatorConfigs> tag.

    The IdentiyServerV4's hosted demo server is available at http://demo.identityserver.io. If you are using your own external Identity Server, makse sure to replace http://demo.identityserver.io with the URL of your hosted Identity Server.

    <OpenIDConnectFederatedAuthenticatorConfig>
       <Name>OpenIDConnectAuthenticator</Name>
       <DisplayName>openidconnect</DisplayName>
       <IsEnabled>true</IsEnabled>
       <Properties>
          <Property>
             <Name>ClientId</Name>
             <Value>server.code</Value>
          </Property>
          <Property>
             <Name>ClientSecret</Name>
             <Value>secret</Value>
          </Property>
          <Property>
             <Name>OAuth2AuthzEPUrl</Name>
             <Value>http://demo.identityserver.io/connect/authorize</Value>
          </Property>
          <Property>
             <Name>OAuth2TokenEPUrl</Name>
             <Value>http://demo.identityserver.io/connect/token</Value>
          </Property>
          <Property>
             <Name>callbackUrl</Name>
             <Value>https://localhost:9443/commonauth</Value>
          </Property>
          <Property>
             <Name>IsUserIdInClaims</Name>
             <Value>false</Value>
          </Property>
          <Property>
             <Name>commonAuthQueryParams</Name>
             <Value>scope=openid</Value>
          </Property>
       </Properties>
    </OpenIDConnectFederatedAuthenticatorConfig>
  4. Add OpenIDConnectAuthenticator as the value for the <DefaultAuthenticatorConfig> tag.
    Example:

    <DefaultAuthenticatorConfig>OpenIDConnectAuthenticator</DefaultAuthenticatorConfig>
  5. Add the following configurations inside the <ClaimConfig> tag to send the role details to WSO2 IoT Server.

    <ClaimMappings>
       <ClaimMapping>
          <RemoteClaim>
             <ClaimUri>idp</ClaimUri>
          </RemoteClaim>
          <LocalClaim>
             <ClaimUri>http://wso2.org/claims/role</ClaimUri>
          </LocalClaim>
          <DefaultValue />
       </ClaimMapping>
    </ClaimMappings>
  6. Add the following configurations inside the <PermissionAndRoleConfig> tag. The new users that get created on the fly via JIT provisioning is assigned the Internal/devicemgt-admin role by default.

    <RoleMappings>
       <RoleMapping>
          <localRole>
             <LocalRoleName>Internal/devicemgt-admin</LocalRoleName>
             <UserStoreId>PRIMARY</UserStoreId>
          </localRole>
          <remoteRole>local</remoteRole>
       </RoleMapping>
    </RoleMappings>
  7. Add the following configurations inside the <JustInTimeProvisioningConfig> tag to enable Just-in-Time (JIT) provisionins.

    <IsProvisioningEnabled>true</IsProvisioningEnabled>

    What is JIT provisioning?

    With JIT provisioning, you can create users on the fly the first time they try to log in to WSO2 IoT Server.

Configuring the Service Providers

The jaggery applications in WSO2 IoT Server, such as the device management, app store, and app publisher consoles are configured as service providers to enable Single Sign-On (SSO) and authenitication. For more information, on accessing the differenct consoles available in WSO2 IoT Server, see Accessing the WSO2 IoT Server Consoles.

You need to configure the serivce providers to have both the basic authentication mechanisam that authenticates the user based on the username and password that was entered and to have the OpenID Connect authentication mechanisam.

For this use case, only the devicemgt service provider is configured. If you want to configure the other applications, you need to add the same configurations to the other service providers in the <IOTS_HOME>/conf/identity/service-providers directory.
  1. Open the <IOTS_HOME>/conf/identity/service-providers/devicemgt.xml file.
  2. Add the following configurations after the <StepOrder>1</StepOrder> property.

    <LocalAuthenticatorConfigs>
       <LocalAuthenticatorConfig>
          <Name>BasicAuthenticator</Name>
          <DisplayName>basicauth</DisplayName>
          <IsEnabled>true</IsEnabled>
       </LocalAuthenticatorConfig>
    </LocalAuthenticatorConfigs>

Extend the Log In page for OpenID Connect

You need to extend the device management console's log in page so that it supports both the basic authentication, which is logging in using the username and password, and the OpenID connect authentication options.

Follow the steps given below:

  1. Create a new folder named company.page.sign-in in the <IOTS_HOME>/repository/deployment/server/jaggeryapps/devicemgt/app/pages directory.
  2. Create a new file named sign-in.hbs in the company.page.sign-in directory you just created and copy the configrations given below to the file.

  3. Create a new file named sign-in.json in the <IOTS_HOME>/repository/deployment/server/jaggeryapps/devicemgt/app/pages/company.page.sign-in directory.
  4. Copy the configurations given below to the sign-in.json file you created.

     Click here to expand and copy the configurations.
    sign-in.json
    {
     "version": "1.0.0",
     "layout": "uuf.layout.sign-in",
     "uri": "/login",
     "extends": "cdmf.page.sign-in",
     "isAnonymous": true
    }
  5. Create a directory named public inside the company.page.sign-in directory.

  6. Create a directory named images inside the company.page.sign-in/public directory.

  7. Download the http://demo.identityserver.io/icon.png file and copy it to the company.page.sign-in/public/images directory.

Now you have configured WSO2 IoT Server successfully. Let's try it out and see.

Try it out

Follow the steps given below:

  1. Start the WSO2 IoT Server's core profile.

    cd <IOTS_HOME>/bin
    ./iot-server.sh
  2. Access the device management console: https://<IOTS_HOST>:<IOTS_HTTPS_PORT>/devicemgt

    • By default, <IOTS_HOST> is localhost. However, if you are using a public IP, the respective IP address or domain needs to be specified.
    • By default, <IOTS_HTTPS_PORT> has been set to 9443. However, if the port offset has been incremented by n, the default port value needs to be incremented by n.
  3. Click Sign in with OpenID Connect.
    <Insert Screenshot>
    You are redirected to the OpenID connect log in page.
  4. Enter bob as the username and bob as the password, and click Log In. This is the default username and password for the IdentityServerV4 demo site.
    Once the authentication is successful, you are redirected into the device management console. 


The user bob did not exist in WSO2 IoT Server. Because you configured JIT provisioning for the IdP, you see that tha a new user named bob created under users in the WSO2 IoT Server management console.
Follow the steps given below to check it out:

  1. Access the IoT Server managemnet console.
  2. On the Main tab in the Management Console, click List under Users and Roles.
  3. Click Users. This link is only visible to users with the Admin role.
  4. Click Update Profile next to bob.
  5. In the screen that appears, check the Role assigned to bob.
    The Internal/devicemgt-admin role is assigned because you configured WSO2 IoT Server to assign this role to all the JIT provisioned users when in
    step 6 when configuring the WSO2 IoT Server IdP.


Congratulations! You have successfully configured setting up dederated IdP with OpenID Connect for WSO2 IoT Server.
