Hello, is there any way how to add state detail in error response after failed authentication (i.e error=login_required etc)? At the moment error_description, hint, error values are returned. State attribute is present in original request. Thank you. State detail is required according to: Authentication Error Response

Hi, Janis. No additional actions should be needed if it's a required parameter according to the spec. Could you please describe the conditions in which the issue occurs? Having the actual authorization request that triggers it would be great, can you share it?

Hello, problem appear when, for example, error=login_required is responded to client (remote error handling method).

Hi, we have also noticed the same. Error response is missing state-parameter in some cases, e.g. with access_denied (The resource owner or authorization server denied the request.). In some cases state is returned, e.g. unauthorized_client (The client is not authorized to request an access token using this method.).
