Identity Provider Service Account

  • Environmental Variable: IDP_SERVICE_ACCOUNT
  • Config File Key: idp_service_account
  • Type: string
  • Required for group based policies (most configurations)

The identity provider service account setting is used to query associated identity information from your identity provider. This is a provider specific value and is not required for all providers. For example, when using Okta this value will be an Okta API key, and for an OIDC provider that provides groups as a claim, this value will be empty.


If you plan to write authorization policies using groups, or any other data that exists in your identity provider's directory service, this setting is mandatory.
