Self-service (SS) OAuth is now available as an optional feature for tenant security administrators to enable in the Anaplan platform!

SS OAuth is an industry-standard protocol for authorization delegation. It lets tenant security administrators share resources with a third-party client application without exposing privileged credentials or maintaining certificates.

Simple to use and easy to configure, tenant administrators can enable SS OAuth to establish secure, frictionless integrations with Anaplan APIs.

With SS OAuth, developers can:

  • Build trusted integrations to Anaplan APIs using the de facto industry standard for delegated authorization
  • Securely establish integrations to third-party applications without maintaining certificates or exposing privileged credentials
  • Secure perpetual access to protected resources, aligning token rules and behaviors with organizational requirements
