A client defines an automated system or tool that is accessing or making using of the Authzed API to check permissions, add tuples, or write/update namespaces.

Creating a client#

A client can be created in the Clients section of the Authzed Management Dashboard.

Client Tokens#

Clients contain one or more tokens, which are used to authenticate to the Authzed API on behalf of a client. A token can be added to a Client in the Authzed Management Dashboard.

Using a Client Token#

To use a client token to authenticate to the Authzed API, place the token into the configuration of the client library being used. If making use of gRPC directly, the token can be passed via the access_token.
