Service Registration

First, check the getting started page to make sure that you want to register an OIDC client and that you are entitled to do so.

Registering a relying party (a service) requires the following steps:

  • Go to the AAI Resource Registry on When asked to select an organisation to log in with, choose your organisation if available or choose "SWITCH edu-ID" otherwise.
  • Authenticate at the selected organisation.
    In case you chose "SWITCH edu-ID" and you don't yet have an edu-ID account, please create an account by clicking on "Create account" on the login page.

    Note: On the first login, the Resource Registry will ask you to agree that the shown data will be stored in the Resource Registry and potentially published on the SWITCH web pages that list all OpenID Connect services.

  • When logged into the AAI Resource Registry, click on "Resources" in the blue bar, then on "Add a Resource Description" and select "OpenID Connect resource". Carefully read the remarks for each part of the form in order to correctly register your resource.
  • When all sections of the Resource Description are finished, click on "Submit for approval". You then will see on the next page which persons will review and approve your registration.
