    ANSWER:

     

    Currently We do not have support for OAuth 2.0 on both FP 11&12. Since the basic authentication will be stopped from October 2020 , we will plan this in the upcoming release(s).

    Engineering team is working on this feature.Once we have more details around this, we will update this knowledge article  accordingly.
