Portal OAuth Clients

Last updated: 2 minutes read.

From Tyk Dashboard v1.8, you can now create and manage OAuth clients from the Developer Portal.


  1. An API created in your Dashboard using Tyk’s ability to act as a OAuth provider. You need to have OAuth 2.0 selected as the Authentication mode. See Create an API for more details.
  2. A Policy created in your Dashboard with the API created above selected in the Access Rights > Add access rule drop-down. See Create a Security Policy for more details.
  3. A Portal Catalog entry for the API created above with the Policy you created selected from the Available policies drop-down. See Create a Portal Entry for more details.
  4. A developer account created in your Developer Portal.
