@Bernd Bausch With openIDconnect, i initially need to know the users client ID and secret key value right? Without this i will not be able to configure OIDC. What's the point of external auth then if i need to store ID and secret key before hand? I am confused with the concept. could you please help

@Bernd Bausch i understand that you havent tried it. But is it possible for you to tell what is the point in using it, if i have to know user's google Client ID and secret key in advance.

I am not the right person to ask. OpenStack just uses the Apache module mod_auth_openid, and perhaps you find more information at the mod_auth_openid git repo
