How do I connect an application using Client Credentials via OpenID Connect?

The .well-known/openid-configuration states that it should be possible, however we can't seem to get it working. Can anyone help me with this?

Hello Kasper,

Indicium technically supports the Client Credentials flow from a server perspective, however, it is currently not possible to configure the necessary information in an OpenID Client in IAM to make this flow work. Because of this, the only flow that works in practice is the Authorization Code flow.

With that said, supporting the Client Credentials flow would be a very nice addition to the platform. And since it's mostly a matter of adding some settings to OpenID Clients in IAM, it shouldn't be that difficult to implement. Could you create an idea for this so the popularity and progress of this idea can be tracked?
