Most modern applications, especially microservices-based ones, require some degree of multi-tenancy.

There are advantages of using multi-tenancy:

  • Allows a secure and compliant access separation.
  • Allows the application to serve multiple customers at once - while sharing the underlying infrastructure and services.
  • Allows for load balancing and scaling.

An authorization layer is the most robust and fastest way to upgrade from a single-tenant application to a multi-tenant application safely. By applying a policy across all the relevant services, the authorization layer can apply the needed separation without requiring changes to the services themselves.
