Error description

  • For APIs secured with an OAuth Native provider with Access code
    grant, the URL for the redirect_uri is being stripped of one of
    the '/' ( https:/ instead of https://) if you use something
    different than Basic authentication (e.g. the Default HTML
    Form) for the Identity Extraction.
    As a result, the redirection might fail with the message
    "{"error":"invalid_request","error_description":"Redirect
    URI specified in the request is not configured in the client
    subscription"}"
    This is reproducible by creating a Native OAuth Provider using
    Access code grant, an Auth URL user registry (such as
    https://httpbin.org/basic-auth/user/pwd) and the Default HTML
    form for collecting the credentials in the Identity Extraction
    

Local fix

Problem summary
