How can I support an OAuth2 grant type of 'password'

An API I'm tasked with testing uses a OAuth2 grant type string like this:

 

grant_type=password&username=johnsmith&password=somepassword

 

The selections available from the authentication manager do not generate this string. Is there a way to configure an OAuth2 authentication profile for this grant type? Let me know what you think. Thanks.

I've come up with a solution. By using the 'Resource Owner Password Credentials Grant' OAuth 2 Flow selection, and putting the username and password in _both_ the Resource and Client entries, with the Access Token Url what you would expect, a valid token can be retrieved.

 

That's what I'll be using then! Thanks.
