FederatedCredential

This is an experimental technology
Check the Browser compatibility table carefully before using this in production.

The FederatedCredential interface of the the Credential Management API provides information about credentials from a federated identity provider. A federated identity provider is an entity that a website trusts to correctly authenticate a user, and that provides an API for that purpose. OpenID Connect is an example of a federated identity provider framework.

In browsers that support it, an instance of this interface may be passed in the credential member of the init object for global fetch.
