Application types

From here, you can choose between setting up

  • Simple,
  • Organization-only, or
  • Hybrid applications.

Simple applications

Simple applications allow a 1:1 relationship between a user base and an application.

βœ…

Recommendation

This application type is best suited for B2C and simple B2B use-cases when you want to provide personal accounts only and the same sign-in and sign-up journeys to all of your users. Simple applications are an ideal choice to address essential organizational needs.

πŸ“˜

You can find out more about how to configure simple applications on the Application setup page.

Organization-only applications

Organization-only applications support multiple organizations that isolate specific populations of users from each other while using the same resources, e.g. for drawing identities from the same identity store.

βœ…

Recommendation

You can use this application type when different groups of business customers need different sign-in and sign-up journeys. Best for more complex B2B use cases (such as white labeling in a B2B settings) were no personal accounts are needed.

Hybrid applications

Hybrid applications can harbor both organizations that place customer identities into a segment and individual accounts that are stored directly in the identity store, in the "non-organizational" compartment.

βœ…

Recommendation

You can choose this applicaiton type when you want to accomodate both B2B and B2C customers. You can provide sign-in for enterprise identities and non-organizational users without any hassle.
