Enhanced Flexibility in OAuth Permission Scopes

January 23, 2024

We're excited to announce a usability update to our authentication process, specifically designed to give you more control and flexibility.

What's New?

  • The "Permission Scopes" field is now always available during OAuth2 authentication, including OAuth2 Client Credentials and OAuth2 Password types. This change allows you to input dynamic OAuth permission scopes that are not predefined in your application's configuration.

  • Field title updates dynamically to

    • Extra permission scopes: In the presence of predefined scopes use this field to add any extra scopes you need.

    • Optional permission Scopes: In cases where your service requires dynamically determined scopes based on user input, which can't be predefined, this field allows you to manually enter those scopes.

  • Enhanced tooltip description for better clarity and guidance.

Why This Matters

This update addresses a crucial need for dynamically determining scopes based on user input, which previously was not supported. It ensures that our authentication process is more adaptable and user-friendly, catering to a wider range of authentication requirements.
