# Verified user access at runtime
By default, recipes perform actions based on the identity and permissions of the user who connects the application. It is also common for these to be integration users, created in the application instances for the sole purpose of connecting to Workato. However, when a user commands a bot to perform an action, the user would probably want the bot to carry out actions on the users' behalf, rather than the integration user (which is the default behavior).

By enabling Verified user access at runtime, Workbot allows individual users to authenticate themselves at runtime. This creates personal connections that can be used to carry out recipe actions on behalf of individual users, rather than the default one used in the recipe. For example, when a sales rep requests a bot to show open opportunities in Salesforce, Workbot authenticates the user at runtime, so that the Salesforce opportunities retrieved belong to the sales rep, not the integration user in Salesforce.
These personal connections persist, meaning that the user doesn't have to authenticate every time they use the Workbot command
# OAuth 2.0
Verified user access at runtime only works with applications that connect using OAuth 2.0 (e.g. Salesforce, ServiceNow, Google Sheets). For applications that support multiple authentication methods (e.g. ServiceNow), OAuth 2.0 must be used.
# Workbot command trigger must be used
To leverage Verified user access at runtime, Workbot commands must be used as the recipe trigger.
# Enabling verified user access at runtime
To enable verified user access at runtime, go to Recipe > Settings page and enable Verified user access at runtime.
Select Verified user access at runtime in the recipe settings
