Standard : 2.2 : "two main paths" means other flow can be used , or not ?

Issue #512 wontfix
hideki nara created an issue

[[| Dec 22, 2011 version of Draft 07]] says about Grant flows like this:

" ......

2.2. Protocol Flows

Authorization Requests follow two main paths to obtain Access Tokens and ID Tokens, the Implicit Flow and the Authorization Code Flow. .... "

Other flows like Client Credentials flow with "[[ | JSON Web Token (JWT) Bearer Token Profiles for OAuth 2.0]]" can be allowed or not ?

    Yes the idea is that other flows like "JSON Web Token (JWT) Bearer Token Profiles for OAuth 2.0" can be used.

    A extension document probably needs to be written for each additional flow.

  2. Michael Jones

    John will probably close this as "wontfix" pending further clarifying discussions with Hideki. We don't anticipate any spec changes resulting from this issue.

    Thank you for your clarification. We'll think of an extension document for our experimental project.
