Deploying Orbital

Enabling authentication

Orbital supports authentication through an OpenID Connect authentication service.

This is disabled by default, and can be configured through a series of parameters passed to Orbital through the command line on startup.

To enable, pass the following config options to Orbital on the command line:

ParameterSample valuesDescription / false (default)Set to true to enable auth client id to present to OpenID server url to load the set of JWK’s used to verify signatures of presented tokens

A typical docker config might look as follows:

    image: orbitalhq/orbital:${ORBITAL_VERSION}
      - ./vyne-config:/opt/service/config
      OPTIONS: >-

When a user attempts to access Orbital, they will be redirected to the login page as configured with the OpenId connect provider.
