In the context of application integration, the concepts of permissions, and scopes are related to controlling access and defining the level of functionality that an application or user has within a system. Here's a brief summary of each concept:


Permissions determine what actions or operations a user or application is allowed to perform within a system. They are used to control access to specific resources, such as data, files, or functionality. Permissions can be granted or revoked based on user roles, groups, or individual settings. For example, an application may require specific permissions to read, write, or delete data from a database.


Scopes define the extent of access within a system. They are used in the context of APIs (Application Programming Interfaces) and OAuth (Open Authorization) protocols. Scopes are specified during the authorization process and determine which resources or actions an application can access on behalf of a user. For example when, creating an integration created in CHILI GraFx, we choose if it has permissions to generate outputs or not.
