Add support for OAuth2 Client Credentials auth flow in Custom Connectors Security

Not much more to add to the title. Currently in the security section of a custom connector you can select a "Generic OAuth2" type, which is in fact a particular flavour of OAuth2, Authorization Code Grant. It would be great if support for OAuth2 Client Credentials flow could be added.

Yes, please do this! It is basically forcing some people to use clientIDs and client secrets (!) in HTTP Flow actions in order to get that token. Maybe it was a design decision in the beginning as Power Platform was new and lets face it you cannot implement it all at once. But now it is really time to do this, it simply forces bad security practices.

Just two examples of people asking about this or simply coming up with workarounds:

Agreed, this is preventing us from connecting to a couple of REST APIs that would be great to have access to in Power Automate.

This seems like a very simple request that is long overdue. Why offer OAuth 2 Auth Code grant flow without also allowing client credential flow?
