Oauth / OpenID Flows: Client Credentials

Follow

Description: The Client Credentials flow allows an application to request an Access Token without needing a username and password.

SecureAuth IdP Version Affected: All

Cause: This KB outlines how to use the Client Credentials grant/flow type. 

Resolution:

1. Add a custom scope to the Post Auth tab. In my example, it is called Abhi.


2. You can then send the following Post

See the new grant_type is called client_credentials - this only requires you to send the client_id, client_secret and the custom scope we created in step1.

3. Introspect works as normal

The Client Credentials flow allows an application to request an Access Token without needing a username and password.
