Manage Identities

Claim an Identity (eg an ABN) and generate authentication keys. You can then use this identity for subsequent tests

There are two ways to interact with the IDP service. Authenticating directly to the IDP with GitHub credentials will give you developer access. With developer access, you can manage your own collection of ABN accounts for testing purposes.


  1. Navigate to the login page
  2. Login with Github
  3. Create synthetic user with any available ABN
  4. Logout with Github
  5. Login again using synthetic user credentials you made in step 3.
  6. Select a client (e.g. and select “Issue new token for this client”
  7. Make note of the JWT token (copy/paste), which you can use to access that service as this user

For example:

curl -v -X GET --header 'Content-Type: application/json' \
    --header 'Accept: application/json; indent=4' \
    --header "Authorization: ${IDP_AUTH}" \

Relying Party

The Testpoint IDP is a standards compliant OICD Identity Provider. In addition to using it to authenticate and authorise synthetic ABN users against Testpoint services, you can also register your own services (OIDC Relying Parties). This way, it can be used to support development of arbitrary services requiring consent-based access to ABN identities.


  1. Navigate to the login page
  2. Login to the IDP client with GitHub
  3. Create your RP client using the web interface
  4. Record the client id and client secret issued by the IDP
  5. Configure your service (OIDC client) to use the credentials provided
