What is OAuth 2.0 Resource Owner Password Credentials (ROPC) grant?

Experience Level: Senior
Tags: Azure Active DirectoryAzure Cloud

Answer

The Microsoft identity platform supports the OAuth 2.0 Resource Owner Password Credentials (ROPC) grant, which allows an application to sign in the user by directly handling their password.

The ROPC flow is a single request: it sends the client identification and user's credentials to the IDP, and then receives tokens in return. The client must request the user's email address (UPN) and password before doing so. Immediately after a successful request, the client should securely release the user's credentials from memory. It must never save them.
