I was wondering if there is a way to check in azure ad logs if an application is using Oauth or Open ID Connect in the SSO.

Thank you in advance

    Applications configure in Azure AD uses either OpenID connect or SAML protocols.

    Oauth is an authorization protocol and OpenID connect is an authentication protocol.

    OpenID connect uses Oauth post authentication.

    Basically, OpenID connect is an upper layer of authentication and Oauth is an authorization protocol.

    Let me know if you have any further questions on this.
