Hi Tobias,

the screenshot under [3] shows both a link for the reclaimID login as well as a 
manual entry.
I am not sure if both can be used. My assumption is that the text entry is 
actually used in combination with OpenID Connect Discovery.
OIDC Discovery uses Webfinger to discover the OpenID Connect server from (e.g.) 
your email address.

reclaimID does (atm) not support discovery. But that should not be an issue as 
discovery is usually optional.

Now, if you can actually configure the OpenID Endpoints in the GMG plugin,
you should use the endpoints as defined in [1]. However, not all OpenID Connect 
plugins support
manual entry of endpoints. We used this in WooCommerce with the WordPress 
OpenID plugin before, where this is possible:

Note that in general the URL https://api.reclaim/openid/authorize is a bit 
hacky, as api.reclaim is not a real DNS name (it is intercepted by the 
So the GMG server likely will not accept this domain for the token and userinfo 
endpoints (and this is also the reason the discovery fails hard).
We are currently working on different ways to define the authorization request, 
possibly through

What you essentially need is for the GMG plugin to generate a button which 
redirects your browser to
https://api.reclaim/openid/authorize?client_id=<some GMG clientid>&scope="some 

If you can point me to the OpenID configuration documentation for GMG, or to a 
sample configuration, I may be able to provide more.
