We are undertaking some important new work on an UMA "relationship manager" extension to fully enable a resource owner dashboard experience, and more. You can check it out by reading our Meetings and Minutes. To understand more about our work on business-legal considerations, including identity relationship management (IRM)-based delegation use cases, see our Legal hub page.

Here are the UMA Grant (PDF, HTML for deep linking) and UMA Federated Authorization Recommendations (PDF, HTML for deep linking). Don't miss the UMA2 masterclass delivered by two UMAnitarians at the Identiverse conference in Boston in June 2018 (slides and video). (The slides and video from the previous year's Authorization: Age of UMA session set in the Marvel Cinematic Universe was also a big hit!) The Release Notes review all final UMA1-to-UMA2 changes. See also the UMA Implementer's Guide, our list of known Implementations, and discussions of Case Studies. Finally, see the detailed UMA Grant sequence diagram and FedAuthz sequence diagram.
