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.
