    Hi @Nazar Kalytiuk

    Thank you for post!

    I understand that you are trying to add an OpenID Connect identity provider to Microsoft Entra External ID, but you only see SAML/WS-Fed options.

    To answer your question, Microsoft Entra External ID only supports SAML/WS-Fed options at the moment, by default, and OpenID Connect is not supported.

    I suggest to choose the SAML/WS-Fed Identity provider
