PingOne integrates with client applications through application connections that define access to PingOne resources. A worker application is a userless service application connection that can perform administrator functions. Access is encoded in the worker application's access token, which you submit with API requests. For more information about how PingOne manages access to applications, see Applications.

Note: The worker application will have the same roles as the user that creates it. Make sure you have the Environment Admin and Identity Data Admin roles, or assign these roles to the worker app after you create it. For more information, see Configuring roles for a worker application.
