Okta Client Credentials Flow Using Service Account


I am trying to follow Implement authorization by grant type | Okta Developer.

I have a service account that will generate an API token. This API token will then be sent to an authentication server, which in turn will send a JWT back.
I will use this JWT to access the resource server after that.

As per my understanding the authentication server will send the JWT right?
My client will just send the API token?

Hi Raso,

I kindly suggest you to have a look at the four important roles of the OAuth 2.0 spec: OAuth 2.0 and OpenID Connect Overview | Okta Developer
