API Access Management Documentation Inconsistent - Grating Scopes

The "Create Rules for Each Access Policy" section of the API Access Management Documentation (https://help.okta.com/en/prev/Content/Topics/Security/API_Access.htm?cshid=create-scopes#create-scopes) seems to be inconsistent between the supplied screenshot and the documented information.

Specifically, dot point three of step 3 says:
"THEN Grant these scopes—Choose the scopes (all scopes, or a list that you specify) that are granted if the user meets any of the conditions"

However, the related section of the screenshot shows "AND Scopes Requested".

Is there a way to return scopes based on the previous rules - e.g grant a "write" scope to a speicifed group as suggested in the documentation?

You're right there is a bit of a contradiction between what is shown in the screenshot and the description below. The screenshot is correct, the rule will apply when the specified scope is requested. This is still an early access feature so the way things look and the documentation are still in development. 

For your question regarging a way to return scopes based on the rules, I would recommend creating a ticket with our developer support team by emaling developers@okta.com. They would be best equipped to answer that for you.
