Authentication method supported

I have created a client credentials using POST /oauth2/v1/clients API with token_endpoint_auth_method as "client_secret_basic" and it worked fine when passing clientcredential in header. When i send the client credentials in request payload that too working but i have mentioned only client_secret_basic on created Client(API). Since Okta supporting client_secret_basic,  client_secret_post and client_secret_jwt how it determining which auth method should work?

Why it is not returning error when client configured to support only client_secret_basic and i am sending clientcredential in payload from C# application?

Hi Vijeesh, The Client Secret is set to the same value for Basic, POST and JWT, unless all three are specified.
