Enable SSO with Zitadel (OIDC)

Firezone supports Single Sign-On (SSO) using Zitadel through the generic OIDC connector. This guide will walk you through how to obtain the following config settings required for the integration:

  1. Config ID: The provider's config ID. (e.g. zitadel)
  2. Label: The button label text that shows up on your Firezone login screen. (e.g. Zitadel)
  3. Scope: OIDC scopes to obtain from your OIDC provider. This should be set to openid email profile offline_access to provide Firezone with the user's email in the returned claims.
  4. Response type: Set to code.
  5. Client ID: The client ID of the application.
  6. Client secret: The client secret of the application.
  7. Discovery Document URI: The OpenID Connect provider configuration URI which returns a JSON document used to construct subsequent requests to this OIDC provider.
