Thanks for your answer.
What I meant to ask is how to create offline token for external IDP, I wasn't able to it with REST API (I am able to it if it's not external IDP).
The only way I managed to do it was when adding offline_access to the UI login page, so for external IDP – is it the only way ? REST API is not supported ?
Assuming it's the only way I thought to create external UI service for the user to log in and get his offline token.
What do you think about such solution ? also if the user will be already logged in – do you know if the offline token will be created ? or the will have to logout and login again…

We are using KeyCloak for a several weeks now, one of the flows is user script authentication with offline token:
1. The user log in to the UI
2. Generates offline token by entering his password again
3. Put the offline token in his script
4. Executes the script
Now we want to add external IDP support, first is it possible to generate offline tokens for extremal IDP in KeyCloak ? if so how ?
Assuming you're using the Keycloak login screen it's just a matter of configuring the external IdP as an identity broker provider and it will be displayed as an option on the login screen.
Second in section #2 above the user enters his password to generate the offline token, with external IDP we can’t use his password, one alternative is to always generate the offline token in the login (add offline_access), however is it make sense to create offline token for every login ?
You shouldn't create offline token for every login, just once for a new user or once offline token is no longer valid.
