Available Grant Types
In this article
Various grant types are valid when registering Auth0 Applications. These can be divided into the following categories:
- Spec-conforming grants: Grants defined by and conforming to external specifications (such as OpenID Connect (OIDC)).
- Auth0 extension grants: Auth0-specific grants that conform to the OAuth extension mechanism to support additional clients or to provide a bridge between OAuth and other trust frameworks.
- Auth0 legacy grants: Traditional grant types supported for legacy customers only. If you are a legacy customer, we highly recommend moving to a more secure alternative. For info on working with legacy grant types and their alternatives, see Legacy Grant Types.
