Resources are the protected endpoints that applications request access to using OAuth 2 authorization services. For example, PingOne API is a defined resource that represents the PingOne APIs. PingOne also defines an openid resource that uses OpenID Connect scopes with the /{environmentId}/as/userinfo endpoint to request specific sets of information as claim values in the ID token. For more information about the userinfo endpoint requests, see Userinfo authorization requests. You can also define custom resources to associate with applications.

The examples that follow show common actions to find and manage resources entities. You need the Client Application Developer role to perform operations on resources entities.
