The Authorization Manager console operates in either developer mode or administrator mode. Administrator mode is the default.
Before you can use administrator mode, you need to provide an application that supports roles, includes all of the necessary operation and task definitions, includes its own authorization store, and is ready for use in Authorization Manager.
After you set up an application in developer mode, you do not have to use Authorization Manager in developer mode for that application.
In developer mode, you can create, deploy, and maintain applications. With developer mode, you have unrestricted access to all features.
You must be in developer mode to do any of the following tasks:
Create new authorization stores
Create new applications
Define or modify operations
Change an application name
Change the version information for an application
Delete an application
In administrator mode, you can deploy and maintain applications.
