UAEPass with OpenID Connect Directory Manager isn't any different from using Okta, Google, or any other provider. Below is the flow of how it would be if you have successfully implemented it.
With clicking the login, you will be redirected to the next image.

Upon successfully logging in with your registered ID, email, or phone you will be getting a push notification on your UAE Pass mobile application to confirm your identity.

After confirming it with your mobile app you are in.


Above are the things a company needs to have in order to achieve the above flow. First, a company needs to submit appropriate documents to the government for onboarding. Second, they need to have the necessary information and even an account with UAE Pass. Finally, they need to have the UAE Pass mobile application on their mobile device.

But for this tutorial, we only will be using the staging credential and staging app.
Below is the necessary stuff if you want to follow along.

So that is all the necessary stuff that you would need and below is the configuration.

So if you already chose the UAEPass issuer in your OpenID connection, you could insert the endpoints and the testing credentials that have been given before.
And you would need the response types supported scope and state that is left blank. The last part would be tricky but not that hard.
To find the scope, state, and response types supported would be here.

We are going to dissect the URL. Below is the full URL (it is an image). We just need to copy the response_type, scope, and state(the highlighted ones) values.

The last URL you need for the validation would be here. Take the Token endpoint and fill it up token validation endpoint and we are good to go.

After filling all up your form will look like the image below
