keycloak_client – Allows administration of Keycloak clients via Keycloak API

New in version 2.5.

Synopsis

  • This module allows the administration of Keycloak clients via the Keycloak REST API. It requires access to the REST API via OpenID Connect; the user connecting and the client being used must have the requisite access rights. In a default Keycloak installation, admin-cli and an admin user would work, as would a separate client definition with the scope tailored to your needs and a user having the expected roles.
  • The names of module options are snake_cased versions of the camelCase ones found in the Keycloak API and its documentation at http://www.keycloak.org/docs-api/3.3/rest-api/. Aliases are provided so camelCased versions can be used as well.
  • The Keycloak API does not always sanity check inputs e.g. you can set SAML-specific settings on an OpenID Connect client for instance and vice versa. Be careful. If you do not specify a setting, usually a sensible default is chosen.

Parameters

Parameter Choices/Defaults Comments
