ShinyProxy and authentication with IdentityServer4

My ShinyProxy is up and running. If I use the authentication basic, it is working. I wanted to connect the ShinyProxy with my IdentityServer4.

Follow the documentation of ShinyProxy, I configure my ShintProxy as follow:

  title: Open Analytics Shiny Proxy
  port: 8080

  authentication: openid
  admin-groups: scientists
    auth-url: https://myidentityserver4/connect/authorize
    token-url: https://myidentityserver4/connect/token
    jwks-url: https://myidentityserver4/.well-known/openid-configuration/jwks
    client-id: ShinyProxy
    client-secret: password

When the user opens the browser to the ShinyApp, it is redirected to login page to the IdentityServer4. The user can login and then it is redirected to


Unfortunately, the result is

It seems there are too many redirections in the ShinyProxy.

Any ideas?

After a lot of research and study, I found how to implement Identity Server with ShinyProxy. I have created a complete step-by-step guide in my blog.

I hope it could help other guys.
