The driver has been enhanced to support fetching access and refresh tokens at connection when OAuth 2.0 is enabled. When using the new dynamic authorization code grant, you can initiate an authorization code grant flow by specifying login credentials using the login prompt for your service, thereby providing a method to authenticate without fetching access and refresh tokens via the Configuration Manager or third-party application. In addition, the new Enable Login Prompt (EnableLoginPrompt) option has been added to enable this functionality. Refer to the user's guide for details.
Available: Driver version 08.00.0851 (B1528, U1311)
