Auth Server Menu#

The Auth Server menu covers the following important sub-menus to configure and manage Auth server.

  • Sessions
  • Server configuration
  • Keys
  • Logging
  • Clients
  • Scopes
  • Enabled Acrs
  • Agama deployment


The Janssen Authentication Server stores user session data in persistence. This screen lists the active session details and the administrator can revoke the sessions of the selected user.



The JSON Web Key Sets (JWKS) is a set of public keys that should be used to verify any JSON Web Token (JWT) issued by the authorization server.


Auth Server Configuration Properties#

The auth server configuration properties can be updated using GUI.



Following AS configuration properties can be used to customize AS logging:

  • Log level: Specify the log levels of loggers
  • Log layout: Logging layout used for Jans Authorization Server loggers
  • Enable HTTP Logging: Enable/disable the request/response logging filter. Disabled by default.
  • Disable JDK Logger?: Choose whether to disable JDK loggers
  • Enable Oauth Audit Logging?: enable OAuth Audit Logging


The logged-in user with appropriate permissions can view, register, edit and delete OIDC clients on auth server using Gluu Flex Admin UI.

UMA: RPT Modification Script List of Requesting Party Token (RPT) claims scripts.
Client JWKS URI URL for the Client's JSON Web Key Set (JWK) document containing the key(s) that are used for signing requests to the OP. The JWK Set may also contain the Client''s encryption keys(s) that are used by the OP to encrypt the responses to the Client. When both signing and encryption keys are made available, a use (Key Use) parameter value is required for all keys in the document to indicate each key's intended usage.

TLS Subject DN String representation of the expected subject distinguished name of the certificate, which the OAuth client will use in mutual TLS authentication.
Is Expirable Client? Specifies whether client is expirable

The scope is a mechanism to limit an application's access to a user's account. An application can request one or more scopes, this information is then presented to the user in the consent screen, and the access token issued to the application will be limited to the scopes granted. Please check here for detail documentation on scopes.

OAuth 2.0 scopes#

This scope type would only have a description, but no claims. Once a client obtains this token, it may be passed to the backend API.

OpenID scopes#

Specify what access privileges are being requested for Access Tokens. The scopes associated with Access Tokens determine what resources will be available when they are used to access OAuth 2.0 protected endpoints. For OpenID Connect, scopes can be used to request that specific sets of information be made available as Claim Values.


Spontaneous scopes#

Spontaneous scopes are scopes with random part in it which are not known in advance. For e.g. transaction:4685456787, pis-552fds where 4685456787 or 552fds are generated part of the scope.

Spontaneous scopes are disabled by default and can be enabled per client. The admins cannot create a spontaneous scope. Creation only happens when an authorized client presents a spontaneous scope at the token endpoint. There are the following client properties available during dynamic registration of the client related to spontaneous scopes:

  • allowSpontaneousScopes OPTIONAL, boolean, false by default. Whether spontaneous scopes are allowed for the given client.
  • spontaneousScopes OPTIONAL, array of strings. Regular expressions which should match to scope. If matched scope is allowed. Example: ["^transaction:.+$"]. It matches transaction:245 but not transaction:.

UMA scopes#

UMA scope can either be created by the user or auto-created by the authentication server. UMA scope cannot be modified using Gluu Flex Admin UI.

  • If the logged-in user creates UMA scope then the creator type will be USER and the creator Id will be logged-in user's INUM.
  • If auth server has auto-created a UMA scope then it will have the creator type as AUTO and no creator Id.

Dynamic Scopes#

The dynamic scope custom script allows to generate a list of claims (and their values) on the fly, depending on circumstances like the id of the client requesting it, logged user's session parameters, values of other user's attributes, results of some calculations implementing specific business logic and/or requests to remote APIs or databases. Claims are then returned the usual way in response to a call to the user info endpoint.

In order to configure a dynamic scope the following steps are required:

  • The script of type DYNAMIC_SCOPE must be configured and enabled.
  • Create scope of scope type Dynamic and select Dynamic scope script and claims inputs.



Authentication Context Class Reference (ACR) enables applications to request and verify the level of authentication assurance or the context of the authentication process used for user authentication.

This page allows the administrator to view all enabled ACRs and select the default ACR which refers to the predefined or default authentication assurance when no specific ACR value is requested or specified.



This menu addresses deployment of Agama project packages (file with .gama extension). To make sure that package is untempered, the file containing sha256 checksum also need to be uploaded on UI.


The project name, description, version, deployment start/end date-time and deployment error (if any) can be seen on details popup of the record. User can export sample and current configuration or import configuration.
