Omniauth::Keycloak

Installation

Add this line to your application's Gemfile:

gem 'omniauth-keycloak'

And then execute:

$ bundle

Or install it yourself as:

$ gem install omniauth-keycloak

Use with Keycloak >= 17 (Quarkus distribution)

In version 17 of Keycloak, /auth was removed from the default context path. (See Issue #29)
In order to reduce breaking existing user's setup, this gem assumes /auth as the default context.
So if you want to use Keycloak 17 or greater then you must do one of the following:

  1. Pass in --http-relative-path '/auth' option with the keycloak start command
  2. Pass in a empty string for you base_url client_option:
    client_options: {base_url: '', site: 'https://example.keycloak-url.com', realm: 'example-realm'}

Usage

OmniAuth::Strategies::Keycloak is simply a Rack middleware. Read the OmniAuth docs for detailed instructions: https://github.com/intridea/omniauth.

Here's a quick example, adding the middleware to a Rails app in config/initializers/omniauth.rb:

Rails.application.config.middleware.use OmniAuth::Builder do
  provider :keycloak_openid, 'Example-Client', '19cca35f-dddd-473a-bdd5-03f00d61d884',
    client_options: {site: 'https://example.keycloak-url.com', realm: 'example-realm'},
    name: 'keycloak'
end

This will allow a POST request to auth/keycloak since the name is set to keycloak

Or using a proc setup with a custom options:

Rails.application.config.middleware.use OmniAuth::Builder do
  SETUP_PROC = lambda do |env|
    request = Rack::Request.new(env)
    organization = Organization.find_by(host: request.host)
    provider_config = organization.enabled_omniauth_providers[:keycloakopenid]

    env["omniauth.strategy"].options[:client_id] = provider_config[:client_id]
    env["omniauth.strategy"].options[:client_secret] = provider_config[:client_secret]
    env["omniauth.strategy"].options[:client_options] = { site: provider_config[:site],  realm: provider_config[:realm] }
  end

  Rails.application.config.middleware.use OmniAuth::Builder do
    provider :keycloak_openid, setup: SETUP_PROC
  end
end

Devise Usage

Adapted from Devise OmniAuth Instructions

# app/models/user.rb
class User < ApplicationRecord
  #...
  devise :omniauthable, omniauth_providers: %i[keycloakopenid]
  #...
end

# config/initializers/devise.rb
config.omniauth :keycloak_openid, "Example-Client-Name", "example-secret-if-configured", client_options: { site: "https://example.keycloak-url.com", realm: "example-realm" }, :strategy_class => OmniAuth::Strategies::KeycloakOpenId

# Below controller assumes callback route configuration following
# in config/routes.rb
Devise.setup do |config|
  # ...
  devise_for :users, controllers: { omniauth_callbacks: 'users/omniauth_callbacks' }
end

# app/controllers/users/omniauth_callbacks_controller.rb
class Users::OmniauthCallbacksController < Devise::OmniauthCallbacksController
  def keycloakopenid
    Rails.logger.debug(request.env["omniauth.auth"])
    @user = User.from_omniauth(request.env["omniauth.auth"])
    if @user.persisted?
      sign_in_and_redirect @user, event: :authentication
    else
      session["devise.keycloakopenid_data"] = request.env["omniauth.auth"]
      redirect_to new_user_registration_url
    end
  end

  def failure
    redirect_to root_path
  end
end

Configuration

  • Base Url other than /auth
    This gem tries to get the keycloak configuration from "#{site}/auth/realms/#{realm}/.well-known/openid-configuration". If your keycloak server has been setup to use a different "root" url other than /auth then you need to pass in the base_url option when setting up the gem:
    Rails.application.config.middleware.use OmniAuth::Builder do
      provider :keycloak_openid, 'Example-Client', '19cca35f-dddd-473a-bdd5-03f00d61d884',
        client_options: {site: 'https://example.keycloak-url.com', realm: 'example-realm', base_url: '/authorize'},
        name: 'keycloak'
    end
