## Create an application user
Introduced in [!INCLUDE[pn_crm_8_2_0_online](../includes/], you can use server-to-server (S2S) authentication to securely and seamlessly communicate with [!INCLUDE[pn_crm_8_2_0_online_subsequent](../includes/] with your web applications and services. S2S authentication is the common way that apps registered on [!INCLUDE[pn_microsoft_appsource](../includes/] use to access the [!INCLUDE[pn_crm_2016_shortest](../includes/] data of their subscribers. All operations performed by your application or service using S2S will be performed as the application user you provide rather than as the user who is accessing your application.

All application users are created with a non-interactive user account, however they are not counted towards the five non-interactive user accounts limit. In addition, there is no limit on how many application users you can create in an instance.

You will need to create a custom security role and an application user to associate with your registered app. For more information, see [Build web applications using Server-to-Server (S2S) authentication](../developer/
