    • Redirect URI Template: {baseUrl}/login/oauth2/code/{registrationId}

      • [No need to substitute baseUrl or registrationId]

    • Authorization URI: https://<yourOauthProvider>/as/authorization.oauth2

    • Use PKCE: enable this to force using PKCE

  8. Click Finish.

  9. Restart the Tomcat services to apply the changes.

  10. If you have any issues with logging in with your OAuth provider after restarting, you can enable DEBUG logging in the REST service for the following package This will provide additional logging in the REST service log file (when a login attempt is made) to help troubleshoot any configuration issues.
