Operational information

​All coming customer affected changes for E-Ident.

Update format of the OpenID Configuration endpoint

Timeline:

2019-10-08: Change is deployed in the customer test environment
2019-10-30: Change is deployed in production

Information

In order to be compliant with the OpenID Connect standard, Nets will update the format of the OpenID Configuration endpoint on /.well-known/openid-configuration.

Details:

  • The "id_token_signing_alg_values_supported" field in the configuration JSON response is currently a String value as returned by E-Ident/FTN. This is not correct according to the OpenID Connect specification, which states that this field should be a JSON Array. After this change this field will have the correct type as described by the spec.
  • The values in the "ui_locales_supported" field are currently not formatted according to the OpenID Connect specification (example: "nb_NO", "en_GB"). After this change these values will follow the standard (example: "nb-NO", "en-GB").

Impact: This can impact customers currently using the OIDC configuration endpoint. To avoid problems in production, customers should verify their E-Ident integration in the test environment after the change is deployed. 

Questions:

If you encounter any issues during verification or have any question, please contact our support team.
