  4. Click Create User Pool.
  5. Enter a name, and click Review defaults.
  6. Click Add app client..., and if prompted click Add app client again.
  7. Add an app client name. E.g. Kantega SSO OIDC. Leave the rest as-is. Click Create app client.
  8. Click Return to pool details. (Use CTRL+F if you don't immediately find it.)
  9. Click Create pool.
  10. In the menu on the left side of the page, click App client settings. Enter your Callback URL: YOUR_ATLASSIAN_URL/plugins/servlet/oidc/callback/.
