Quick Start

pip install fastapi-oidc

Verify ID Tokens Issued by Third Party

This is great if you just want to use something like Okta or google to handle your auth. All you need to do is verify the token and then you can extract user ID info from it.

from fastapi import Depends
from fastapi import FastAPI

# Set up our OIDC
from fastapi_oidc import IDToken
from fastapi_oidc import get_auth

OIDC_config = {
    "client_id": "",
    "base_authorization_server_uri": "",
    "issuer": "",
    "signature_cache_ttl": int,

authenticate_user: Callable = get_auth(**OIDC_config)

app = FastAPI()

def protected(id_token: IDToken = Depends(authenticate_user)):
    return {"Hello": "World", "user_email":}
