A service account represents a non-human user entity that uses access tokens to authenticate to Talend Cloud and call a Talend service.
With service accounts, you are enabled to use the OAuth2 Client Credentials Flow for accessing Talend Cloud APIs.
The number of service accounts you can create depends on the number of Talend Cloud admin add-ons specified in your license. Each admin add-on allows you to create 3 service accounts. If you need more service accounts and thus more admin add-ons, contact your sales representative.
