If you are seeing a redirect loop, this most likely means that the ID
token being received by Guacamole is failing validation. Having
received an invalid token, Guacamole redirects the user back to the
IDP to receive a new token, which also fails validation, etc.

What do you see in the logs when this is occurring?

The OpenID support for Guacamole already takes this into account.
