Rotate Signing Key

Use this API endpoint to create a new Signing Key.

OneLogin recommends that you rotate your signing keys every 90 days so that in the event of a security breach you can rotate keys with the confidence that all of your OpenId Connect applications are configured correctly to automatically switch over to the new keys.

Generally speaking if you are using a certified OpenId Connect client it will be able to handle both new keys and those that have been rotated into a draining state.

This API request will create a new Signing Key with an active state and force all existing keys to a draining state.

All tokens issued after a new Signing Key has been created will use that key for thier signature.

Existing keys that move to the draining state will remain in the keys list and can still be used to validate tokens.

To remove keys in the draining state see the Revoke Signing Key endpoint.
