Issue application credentials

Application Credentials are used for background actions without any user interaction required or, when the data displayed in the UI should be independent from the rights of the App User (example, show all assets on the tenant independent if the App User has the right to access Asset Management itself).

After application credentials are issued to application, you can invoke by Token Manager Service and create a bearer token. For more information, see Token Manager Service.
