Developer friendly permissions

Permissions shouldn’t be a pain. At Ory, we’ve taken the hassle out of clunky, rigid permissions and created a modeling and management system for permissions that developers will actually enjoy using.

Flexible access policies

Define permissions for users and resources at a granular level for simple or complex permissioning scenarios. Unify access across all your applications and break up silos and tightly-coupled legacy rights management that's hard to extend, maintain and reason about.

Powerful permission modeling

Ory’s innovative Permission Language allows powerful permission modeling that is straightforward, scalable and maintainable. Whether you need role-based access control (RBAC) or are controlling access and edit rights to files and resources, Ory Permissions makes it simple. At any scale.

04Why use Ory’s fine-grained permissions?

Scale from one to one billion authorization checks

With Ory Permissions there’s no need to rip and replace an outgrown permissions model. Start with RBAC and add complexity as needed. Permissions checks are fast and easily integrated with our API.

Reduce complexity. Increase security.

Permission management in homegrown and legacy systems is hard to maintain and difficult to harmonize across systems. Centralize authorization into one powerful platform that integrates anywhere, scales indefinitely, and lets you add rules on the fly without touching application code or databases.


Automate access control

Let users inherit permissions based on document hierarchies, group memberships and attributes like title, location, or file type. Determine what can or can’t be accessed in real-time.


Secure sensitive information

Keep bad actors and malicious bots at bay with secure, consistent, and up-to-date permissions. Globally synchronized rules and relationships ensure new policies are enforced within seconds - not after weeks of updating application after application.
