Credential Type

In the production registry, the API features that members have access to are determined by their membership level. While ORCID membership isn't required in order to access the Sandbox, Sandbox credentials can be set to reflect the API features available at different membership levels. For more on which API features are available at each level, see: ORCID Membership Comparison . If you do not choose a credential type, your sandbox credentials will be set to "Premium: Trusted Party."

Displayed to Registry Users

The following three fields will be displayed to users who are connecting to your application through the authorization process. You will be able to adjust this information later if needed.

Redirect URIs

Once the user has authorized your application, they will be returned to a URI that you specify. You must provide these URIs in advance. For more information about redirect URIs, please see our Knowledge Base article. (opens in a separate window)
