Access Control

For authentication Tigris uses OpenID connect built on top of OAuth 2.0 and for authorization it uses stateless JSON Web Token.

Tigris integrates with Auth0 as the authentication and authorization providers. Tigris Cloud uses rotating JWT and uses Auth0 as the signature authority with RS256 signature algorithm.

Application Keys

Every project allows you to create one or more applications keys. See below on how to create an application key through the Tigris Cloud Console.
