Sign In With Apple

An authentication node for Apple's Sign in with Apple service. For Access Management 6.5.1 and above. This is a tech preview and will continue to be updated as the Apple service changes.


The code in this repository has binary dependencies that live in the ForgeRock maven repository. Maven can be configured to authenticate to this repository by following the following ForgeRock Knowledge Base Article.

To build, run mvn clean package.


Copy the .jar file from the ../target directory into the ../web-container/webapps/openam/WEB-INF/lib directory where AM is deployed. Restart the web container to pick up the new node. The node will then appear in the authentication trees components palette.


To configure a client to use with Access Management, you must have an account at

Sign in and click on "Certificates, Identifiers & Profiles".


Next, create a new App ID Identifier and enable "Sign in with Apple"


After that, create a new Service Identifier. This service Identifier will be the client id used in the Authentication Node. Note, the Return URLs configured must be running TLS and be configured on port 443.


The next step is to create a key to be used to generate your client secret. Enable this key for use with Sign in with Apple. Download this key and name it key.txt


Finally, create your client secret next by executing the following script.

Download the script to the same folder where you save your apple key. Next, update the kid value with your key id that you just created, the issuer with your Apple Team ID and the sub with your Apple Service ID. To execute the script, first make sure you have ruby installed. Then install the JWT library by running gem install jwt. Execute the script by running ruby client_secret.rb. This will output a JWT that you will be used as your client secret for the node.

Configure a new Authentication Tree in Access Management with the Sign in with Apple node and the Provision Dynamic Account Node like below. Set the Client Id to the Apple Service ID and the Client Secret to the JWT you just provisioned in the previous step. All other configuration have been set with the correct values to authorize end users to the Apple Sign In service.
