Where can I learn how to create a new custom social connection

Hello Guys, I am new to auth0 and Oauth in general and I want to put a social connection using Gitlab to my app using Auth0.

However, there is no option for Gitlab under Connection -> Social.

There is however a Custom Social Connection in the extension tab.

I am confused with these four options under adding New Social Connection settings:

  1. Fetch User Profile Script
  2. Authorization URL
  3. Token URL
  4. Scope

I tried searching for answers and found and read this: https://auth0.com/docs/extensions/custom-social-extensions
and also in Gitlab about this: https://docs.gitlab.com/ee/api/oauth2.html
But this is not enough.

Do you know any documentations or guides on where I can learn about this so I can put the correct settings?

Thank you very much

Edit: I have already Github and Bitbucket as Social Connection and I am using React for my app. Hopes this helps.

I would recommend to look into OIDC enterprise connection to integrate with OIDC identity provider instead of Custom Social Connection. It is documented here -> https://auth0.com/docs/connections/enterprise/oidc
