Applications are the basis for RemoteAuth. An Application is the representation of the external application connected to RemoteAuth. For example:

A developer has a SaaS called "Example SaaS". The developer would then create a new Application in RemoteAuth, called "Example SasS".

Applications are used to connect your Users to your: Roles & Permissions, Subscriptions, Notifications, etc.

Application Members

Application Members are the relationship between a User and an Application. Applications are granted access to a User through an Application Member.

OAuth Clients

Following the OAuth 2.0 protocol, OAuth Clients are the various implementations of your Application. For instance, you may have a web server and a mobile app that both make requests to RemoteAuth. Each of those implementations would get their own OAuth Client in RemoteAuth.


Permissions are used to restrict specific functionality in your Application. Permissions belong to Roles. By granting a Role to a User, you also grant them all Permissions attached to the Role.


Roles are titles that can be given to your users. They are used to designate rank in your Application. Roles are also attached to Permissions.


Teams are used to group Users that belong to the same organization together. Teams are used as the owner for Applications.


A User in RemoteAuth is both an end user of your application and of RemoteAuth. Users in RemoteAuth use one account across multiple applications. Read more about this under ApplicationMembers.
