Configure the OAuth server to enable the external authentication server using the OAuth 2.0 protocol.

Before you begin

  • As an administrator, you have obtained OAuth 2.0 client credentials from the authorization server.
  • As an administrator, you have configured the authorization server.
  • You have been assigned a global role with the Security Administration capability.

Procedure

  1. Go to MANAGE > Users.
  2. In the Authentication field of the toolbar, select OAuth from the drop-down list.
  3. Click the Configure authentication icon next to the drop-down list.
  4. In the Connection tab, fill in the following fields.
    Field Action
    Client ID Enter the Client ID.
    Client Secret Enter the Client Secret.
    Authentication URI Enter the URI on the external authentication server that handles the user authentication. The result is an authorization code, which the application can exchange for an access token and a refresh token.
    Token URI Enter the URI on the external authentication server that exchanges the authentication code for an access token.
    Validation URI Enter the URI on the external authentication server that validates the access token and provides access to the user account
    Scope Enter one or more scope values indicating which parts of the user’s account an access token permits.
  5. In the Attribute Mappings tab, map the attributes from the external user account to the Talend Cloud Data Catalog user attributes, such as Login, Full Name, Email or Groups.
  6. In the Request Headers tab, click Add header and enter extra parameters to be added in the HTTP requests to the external authentication server.
  7. In the Group Mappings tab, click Add Assignment to map the group attribute from the external user account to the Talend Cloud Data Catalog group name.
    To enable the automatic group assignment, you can fill in the Groups attribute with the corresponding field name in the user account information. Talend Cloud Data Catalog uses the value of this field as the security group assignment.
    The user account information is returned from the OAuth server to Talend Cloud Data Catalog after the OAuth server validates an access token upon a login request.
    You can also map individual values assigned to the OAuth attribute that maps to the Groups in Talend Cloud Data Catalog.
    You can use the wildcard ("%") when configuring the group mappings. The % matches zero or more characters.
    When populating an OAuth attribute for group assignment, you switch from native and manually managed group assignment to OAuth driven and automatic group assignment for all OAuth users. As an OAuth user, you lose the previous native group assignment the next time you log in.

    When deleting the last OAuth attribute for group assignment, you switch from OAuth driven group assignment to native group assignment. Any OAuth user will be associated with the Guest group, until the users are manually assigned to other groups.

  8. Save your changes.
