We've recently switched to B2C for implementing SSO and majority of our clients using external IDP's like Okta or Salesforce doesn't have metadata uri. Is there a way possible for external IDP federation without metadata uri?

    @Yashwanth Reddy Yenugu If you are adding external IDP's as Open ID Connect or SAML IDP, you need to use metadata urls.

    If the external IDP supports OAuth, you can add it as OAuth IDP in B2C. In that case, you don't need to use any metadata url as you can directly specify endpoints such as Authorization, Token, UserInfo etc.

    You can refer to https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/active-directory-b2c/identity-provider-google-custom?tabs=applications to understand how OAuth IDP can be added to B2C.
