What is OAuth 2.0 Client credentials flow and when would you use it?

Experience Level: Senior
Tags: Azure Active DirectoryAzure Cloud

Answer

You can use the OAuth 2.0 client credentials grant specified in RFC 6749, sometimes called two-legged OAuth, to access web-hosted resources by using the identity of an application. This type of grant is commonly used for server-to-server interactions that must run in the background, without immediate interaction with a user. These types of applications are often referred to as daemons or service accounts.
