The Consumer API provides authenticated user identity information using OpenID Connect (OIDC). With OpenID Connect, third party apps are provided authenticated information about the user in the form of an identity_token.

Before you get started, you’ll need to get these credentials from the back office administrator at your financial institution who has access to Banno People:
- client_secret <— Keep this secret!
If the administrator does not know where to do this, they can review the External application configuration article on the Banno Knowledge site.
If you are developing using a Jack Henry test environment, you will not have access to Banno People.
In this case, Jack Henry is the acting administrator of the financial institute and you will have to contact us for any Banno People operations.
