How it works?
Authorization is simple: a
principal wants to make an
action on a
resource. That’s it.
Authz allows you to manage all the authorizations you want to manage. All of them, centralized in a single application.
All you need to do is to host the backend server (a Go single binary), the frontend (static files) if you want it and use our SDKs.
All data are stored in a SQL database. We currently support:
You can run a development environment using our
docker-compose.postgres.yaml files. Or, you can see below to run an example using SQLite.
