The lines you’ve provided seem to represent a list of scopes that might be related to authentication and authorization in the context of Microsoft services or APIs that use OAuth 2.0 and OpenID Connect. Here’s a breakdown of the scopes you’ve mentioned:
User.Read: This scope typically indicates permission to read basic user information. It might include details like the user’s display name, email address, and user ID. This scope is often used to request access to limited user profile data.
profile: This scope generally indicates that the application is requesting access to the user’s profile information. This could encompass a broader set of data beyond the basic user information, such as their profile picture, preferred language, and more.
openid: This scope is specifically related to the OpenID Connect protocol, which is an authentication layer on top of OAuth 2.0. It indicates that the application is requesting an ID Token, which is a JSON Web Token (JWT) containing information about the authenticated user. The openid scope is necessary for implementing OpenID Connect authentication.
