Registering applications

Your application must be registered with Bentley’s OpenId provider in order to access resources from Bentley services such as iModelHub. A registration identifies your application to other services and specifies what resources your application can access such as iModels, reality data, and user information, and more. All deployed applications must be registered.

There are three types:

Web Application

An interactive application obtains information from an iModel and presents that information in a user interface.

Agent Application

iModel agents and services are apps that have no interactive user interface.

Desktop Application

An interactive application obtains information from an iModel and presents that information in a user interface. The app runs in Electron on the user's desktop.
