The Eclipse Foundation provides user authorization from third-part websites and tools using OpenID Connect.

To enable a site or application to leverage a users' Eclipse account, a request must be made to the webdev team.

Who can request an OpenID Client ID

  1. Eclipse Projects who wish to use Eclipse accounts for Eclipse project-related content and applications;
  2. Eclipse Committers who wish to operate services for the Eclipse Community, as approved by the Eclipse Management Organization;
  3. Eclipse Members (Solutions Members and Strategic Members) who wish to operate services for the Eclipse Community, as approved by the Eclipse Management Organization;


Revoking a Client ID

The Eclipse Management Organization (EMO) may, at its discretion, choose to revoke a Client ID at any time. The reasons may include:

  1. Faulty software which generates too many requests to our service;
  2. Abuse of any kind;
  3. Usage for other purposes that are not Eclipse-related.


Requesting a Client ID

To request a Client ID and a secret, please send an email to the webdev team : webdev at eclipse. org. Please specify the following:

  1. Your Eclipse-related project or member affiliation;
  2. The purpose of the request (why do you need Eclipse authorization?);
  3. Where this authorization will be used (website, rich client app);
  4. An estimate on how many user authentication/authorization calls per day we can expect to receive.
