Platform controls for Standard accounts
Beta

Connect platforms can activate the Platform controls beta to restrict OAuth connections between newly created Standard accounts and other platforms or extensions.

By default the data your platform creates for a Standard account (e.g., charges, customers, invoices, etc.) is visible on their Stripe account. This also means if they connect to other platforms or third-party extensions, those platforms and extensions will also have access to the same pool of data.

Activating the beta setting prevents your Standard accounts from accidentally sharing data with other platforms and extensions.

Prerequisites

To activate this setting, you must use Standard Connect with Connect Onboarding to create and provision new accounts.

Only team members with administrator access to the platform Stripe account can request the beta.
