Are AMRAs kinda like "stored procedures" then?



AMRAs are like physical documents with an instruction to the information guardian, with a signature from the information owner, authorising access.

A lot of it is electronic these days, and is automated to the point that an individual authorises access by clicking a link in an email that calls an endpoint that in turn releases a token and URL to the requestor to view the appropriate records.


So like OAuth?


Partly. OAuth is authentication (who I am), which is part of it, but the real point is authorisation (what I can do).
