Konfigurieren von OpenID Connect in PyPI

Verwenden Sie OpenID Connect in Ihren Workflows zum Authentifizieren bei PyPI.


OpenID Connect (OIDC) allows your GitHub Actions workflows to authenticate with PyPI to publish Python packages.

This guide gives an overview of how to configure PyPI to trust GitHub's OIDC as a federated identity, and demonstrates how to use this configuration in the pypa/gh-action-pypi-publish action to publish packages to PyPI (or other Python package repositories) without any manual API token management.


  • To learn the basic concepts of how GitHub uses OpenID Connect (OIDC), and its architecture and benefits, see "About security hardening with OpenID Connect."

  • Before proceeding, you must plan your security strategy to ensure that access tokens are only allocated in a predictable way. To control how your cloud provider issues access tokens, you must define at least one condition, so that untrusted repositories can’t request access tokens for your cloud resources. For more information, see "About security hardening with OpenID Connect."

Adding the identity provider to PyPI

To use OIDC with PyPI, add a trust configuration that links each project on PyPI to each repository and workflow combination that's allowed to publish for it.

  1. Sign in to PyPI and navigate to the trusted publishing settings for the project you'd like to configure. For a project named myproject, this will be at

  2. Configure a trust relationship between the PyPI project and a GitHub repository (and workflow within the repository). For example, if your GitHub repository is at myorg/myproject and your release workflow is defined in release.yml with an environment of release, you should use the following settings for your trusted publisher on PyPI.

    Note: Enter these values carefully. Giving the incorrect user, repository, or workflow the ability to publish to your PyPI project is equivalent to sharing an API token.

    • Owner: myorg
    • Repository name: myproject
    • Workflow name: release.yml
    • (Optionally) a GitHub Actions environment name: release

Updating your GitHub Actions workflow

Once your trusted publisher is registered on PyPI, you can update your release workflow to use trusted publishing.

Note: When environments are used in workflows or in OIDC policies, we recommend adding protection rules to the environment for additional security. For example, you can configure deployment rules on an environment to restrict which branches and tags can deploy to the environment or access environment secrets. For more information, see "Using environments for deployment."

The pypa/gh-action-pypi-publish action has built-in support for trusted publishing, which can be enabled by giving its containing job the id-token: write permission and omitting username and password.

The following example uses the pypa/gh-action-pypi-publish action to exchange an OIDC token for a PyPI API token, which is then used to upload a package's release distributions to PyPI.

    runs-on: ubuntu-latest

      - uses: actions/checkout@v4

      - uses: actions/setup-python@v4
          python-version: "3.x"

      - name: build release distributions
        run: |
          # NOTE: put your own distribution build steps here.
          python -m build

      - name: upload windows dists
