The Authorization tab contains additional sub-tabs covering the different steps that you must follow to actually protect your application’s resources. Each tab is covered separately by a specific topic in this documentation. But here is a quick description about each one:

  • Settings

    General settings for your resource server. For more details about this page see the Resource Server Settings section.

  • Resource

    From this page, you can manage your application’s resources.

  • Authorization Scopes

    From this page, you can manage scopes.

  • Policies

    From this page, you can manage authorization policies and define the conditions that must be met to grant a permission.

  • Permissions

    From this page, you can manage the permissions for your protected resources and scopes by linking them with the policies you created.

  • Evaluate

    From this page, you can simulate authorization requests and view the result of the evaluation of the permissions and authorization policies you have defined.

  • Export Settings

    From this page, you can export the authorization settings to a JSON file.

Resource Server Settings

On the Resource Server Settings page, you can configure the policy enforcement mode, allow remote resource management, and export the authorization configuration settings.

  • Policy Enforcement Mode

    Specifies how policies are enforced when processing authorization requests sent to the server.

    • Enforcing

      (default mode) Requests are denied by default even when there is no policy associated with a given resource.

    • Permissive

      Requests are allowed even when there is no policy associated with a given resource.

    • Disabled

      Disables the evaluation of all policies and allows access to all resources.

  • Remote Resource Management

    Specifies whether resources can be managed remotely by the resource server. If false, resources can be managed only from the administration console.
