The following information is required to authenticate with ProcessMaker IDP:

  • Client secret: The client secret is the time-sensitive and private code that your ProcessMaker IDP instance acknowledges to authenticate IDP connectors when connecting.

  • Token URL: The token URL references the valid authentication token that authenticates IDP connectors when during authentication.
