Configure and manage account API OAuth clients
The Account Management API helps you manage your account and its users. For example, you can manage access to Dynatrace environments by creating groups with various access levels and then associating these groups with users.
To use the Account management API, you must create an OAuth2 client that uses the standard client credentials flow to authenticate a service user with the API.
You can designate any user on your account as a service user, but we recommend that you do not use the service user for any other purpose. The service user must belong to a group that provides account user management permissions.
Create a separate Client ID for each application or integration that you build, and don't share clients between them. This approach provides you maximum control and security. Each client must have at least one scope. This enables you to authorize APIs on an application basis, as well as via the associated service user.
