Your authentication provider is set up during the service registry under Mission Control managing services section.
When logging into Distribution, you will be redirected to your authentication provider's login page via OAuth 2.0.

Once the file is deleted, "Add" the Distribution to Mission Control again in order to activate service as described in in the JFrog Mission Control User Guide and initialize the pairing between Distribution and the authentication provider.
