When enabling SSO, it was found that only OIDC Client ID and Discovery URL entries were provided, and there was no entry for the secret.

After the configuration is completed, you can jump to the OIDC authentication interface for authentication, but an error will be reported. The error screenshot is:
Detailed content: Error: authenticate failed, caused by: SSO is not configured correctly, caused by: oidc: exchange failed, caused by: oauth2: cannot fetch token: 401 Unauthorized Response: {"error":"unauthorized_client","error_description":"Invalid client secret"}

For now, the secret has been removed, and OIDC authentication is now possible. However, it is best to add a place to transmit the secret on the page, otherwise, it is prone to DoS attacks.

Regarding this issue, I consulted with the security team. This problem is due to the dashboard’s incomplete functionality and is not considered a vulnerability. However, since it is related to security, our security team is currently communicating with the dashboard team. If there are any further conclusions, we will update you.
