An application is an external system that can use Agate as a central authentication system. Once an application is registered in agate, it can use its credentials (name and key) to connect with agate. See also Application domain documentation.
When Agate delegates the authentication to an external Open ID Connect Realm or when using OAuth2 service (see OAuth2 Introduction), the redirect URI must be set so that Agate performs the redirect to a known application after successful authentication. Wildcard
* can be used in this configured redirect URI.
The application pages are: the list of applications page and application view and edit pages.
agate-administrator role can access these pages.
