Wrong type definition for .findOAuthInfo in js api 4.10

I have just discovered a bug in index.d.ts in

"@types/arcgis-js-api": "^4.10.0",
findOauthInfo(url: string): OAuthInfo;

It must by capital A -> findOAuthInfo.

The same typo in the documentation: IdentityManager | API Reference | ArcGIS API for JavaScript 4.10 

Now I have to use js api 4.10 with old types @types/arcgis-js-api@4.9.0

Could you fix it, please

Thanks for reporting the issue we'll get the doc (and typings) fixed.  When I run into situations like this I create a file in my project called updates.d.ts and 'fix' the typo in that file similar to the instructions outlined here: 

How to overwrite incorrect TypeScript type definition installed via @types/package - Stack Overflow 

That way you can continue to use the 4.10 typings and when the new typings are available you can just delete the update file.

Thank you for the answer!

I would be nice if you could fix this typo in the next version of api.

I will override as you suggested!

I just want to describe how I overridden the esri's type definition.

1. Create a folder typings/arcgis-js-api

2. Copy type definition file from node_modules/@types/arcgis-js-api/index.d.ts to the new folder (typings/arcgis-js-api)

3. Make changes in the type definitions.

4. Add in tsconfig.json:

"compilerOptions": {
"typeRoots": [

5. Restart your project "npm start"

Good luck!!!
