API Resources: APIs resources represent functionality a client wants to invoke. Example API resource represents the API that clients will access, e.g. "the GitHub API", my "data import API" etc. API Scopes:  is what you ask for as a client and as a user you give consent to. Optionally, one or more API Resources can be associated with an API Scope.
