Cloud Setup


You are lucky. Just send the values from the previous steps to us and we'll take care 🥰

Self-Hosted Setup


The values from the previous steps need to be passed as environment variables to the SysReptor docker container. You can add them to <sysreptor-repository>/deploy/app.env:

OIDC_GOOGLE_CLIENT_ID=<google client id>
OIDC_GOOGLE_CLIENT_SECRET=<google client secret>

The OIDC client needs to be able to establish a network connection to Google. Make sure to not block outgoing traffic.

Restart the docker container by going to sysreptor/deploy and:

docker compose up -d


SysReptor reauthenticates users before critical actions. It therefore requires users to enter their authentication details (e.g. password and second factor, if configured).

Google does not support enforced reauthentication. The reauthentication therefore redirects to Google. If the users are still authenticated at Google, they are redirected back and SysReptor regards the reauthentication as successful.

This is a limitation by Google.

To enforce reauthentication, users can set a password for their local SysReptor user. This will enforce reauthentication with the local user's credentials.
