# Authorisation¶

Ocelot supports claims based authorisation which is run post authentication. This means if you have a route you want to authorise you can add the following to you ReRoute configuration.

"RouteClaimsRequirement": {
"UserType": "registered"
}


In this example when the authorisation middleware is called Ocelot will check to see if the user has the claim type UserType and if the value of that claim is registered. If it isn’t then the user will not be authorised and the response will be 403 forbidden.
