SAML/OIDC for a web portal (react + express)?

Which one of SAML/OIDC should I go for when I want to integrate okta to my portal (react + express). Here, express is used to route API calls only. I also want to give role-based access to my portal.

I want to know which one of SAML/OIDC I should be using for such an application. If SAML, is there any article explaining how I should go about adding that to my portal?

I’ve found OIDC easier to use as a developer. It could be the age of the specs: SAML is from 2006 and OIDC is from 2014.
