Again — isn’t this just the client credentials grant but with extra steps?

Many existing systems have access controls based on users, roles, permissions and so on and expect all users accessing the system to exist in some user repository, e.g. LDAP, where they can be looked up and appropriate permissions determined. A service account can be created inside such a system as if it was a regular user, managed through the normal account provisioning tools, assigned permissions, roles, etc.

This is often the case when OAuth has been retrofitted to an existing system and they need to preserve compatibility with already deployed clients.

For service-to-service API calls you typically get an access token with a single scope that is effectively “all of GCP” and everything is managed at the level of permissions on the RO service account itself. They only break down fine-grained scopes when you are dealing with user data and will be getting an access token approved by a real user (through a normal auth code flow).

Having recently converted some code from ROPC to JWT bearer for exactly this use-case, it went from a couple of lines of code to two screens of code. For service to service API calls within a datacenter I’m not convinced this resulted in a material increase in security for the added complexity.
