An OAuth client application interacts with an OAuth authorization server to obtain the required access tokens to call OAuth-protected services at the resource server.
The Clients window displays 20 clients at a time. You can sort the display order by name or ID. You can use the pagination controls to navigate through the rest of the clients or search clients by name or ID. A client is included in the search results if its name or ID is a partial, case-insensitive match to the search term.

PingFederate stores client records in XML files by default. On-disk storage allows you to manage clients using the administrative console and the administrative API. Client records are part of the configuration archive.
Alternatively, you can configure PingFederate to store client records externally, which allows you to manage client records through the OAuth Client Management Service or enable dynamic client registration for your partner-developers. In this case, client records are not part of the configuration archive. Instead, PingFederate stores them on a database server, a directory server, or another storage medium through the use of the PingFederate SDK. For more information, see OAuth client datastores.
