Add permission scopes to your app

Add specific permission scopes to your app, so that it can access only the user data it needs to work.

The Miro REST API and the Miro Web SDK implement user access control through permission scopes.

Scopes limit app access to user data. They enable selecting only specific data subsets, depending on the user resources that the app needs to work as expected.

Goal

Set the minimum required set of permissions that users need to grant an app, so that they can interact with it.

When users install the app, or when they click the app icon to use the app for the first time, they are prompted to grant the app the specified permissions.
