    Hello, I'm trying to implement the Password grant type OAuth flow, and I'm having trouble understanding how I'm supposed to obtain the user's username and password in order to request the OAuth token for the first time. This section seems to imply that there is an endpoint to retrieve the username and password I need, but I haven't been able to find this endpoint. Any advice? Thanks

    Do you support OIDC brokering?
    Idea is that I have IDP and my web users should authenticate with my IDP via SSO.

    Hello Vitaliy,

    Zendesk does not currently support OpenID Connect, and according to our product team, this is not currently something on our Road Map.  Apologies for the inconvenience.

    The "authenticity_token" mentioned in the comment above doesn't work for me. The format of the csrf_token (which I was able to access using the v1 template api) and this authenticity_token are different.
