Using PhenixID OpenIDConnect HTTP API for OpenIDConnect UserInfo


This API is used to get additional user claims (attributes) based on the logged-in user. To retreive the userInfo, the api client must submit the access_token returned from previous call to the API, normally using the token endpoint.

To use the API, one method is called. It will return:

- HTTP Status code 200 if access_token is still valid. UserInfo will be returned

- HTTP Status code 403 if access_token is not valid.  


- PhenixID Authentication Services HTTP API configured for OpenIDConnect UserInfo use case

userinfo - data to be fetched before api call

The api client must fetch this value:

- access_token, returned from previous authentication (this might be returned through API, OIDC or SAML2)

 How this parameter is fetched may differ depending on the use case.
