How can we help you?


Is there a login feature available in the AppMachine platform?

AppMachine is currently working on new functionality that will allow you to add user login functionality to your app.

These new features will take care of everything around user registration inside your app. To give you a sneak preview of what we are going to offer here’s a little list:

A. Login
We are going to add the ability to let users login inside your app, and based on their account you can show the appropriate content.
To do so you will be given a number of options:

  1. You already have a database containing user accounts and you can connect to your database (via a REST Webservice) to validate the account credentials;
  2. You can use the new User registration features to let users login into your app, so we will provide an all-in-one solution where we take care of everything for you;
  3. Users can use their existing social networks - such as Facebook, Twitter, Google+ and also LinkedIn and Salesforce, to login into your app;

B. User registration
We are also going to offer user registrations, where users will be able to register themselves from within your app. You can ask for basic information such as their name, email address and a password but also some more detailed information about their gender, age range and so on.

STATUS: Available! Read more here.

C. Access management
With the ability to let users login into your app you can also show content inside your app based on their access level and their authorization. In this way you can show users their own information from your own database.

STATUS: The "Authorization Level" option in our Lock block is Available! Read more here and here.

D. Push messages
After users have logged in to the app, you will also be able to send push messages to a single user or to users matching one or more criteria such as age range or gender.

STATUS: Sending a personal push message is Available! Read more here.

Features described in this article may be subject to change.

    Would love an update on this. Looking forward to implementing and finally launching our app, since our app will be based around individual user accounts! :)

    We have an update about these 4 features:
    A) Logging in is possible but not documented yet. When adding a custom webservice (POST/GET) you are able to enter extra parameters which helps you retrieve specific data from your own webservice.

    B) User registration can be found in the left menu. When enabled you can decide how people can login or register (registerring is optional). In the bottom you can find a setting which forces users to login/register before they can use the app. If you use this please don't forget to create 1 demo account for Apple Review. The demo account can be created in the App User tab in the User Registration view. The credentials for Apple must be filled in in the Publish page.

    C) Access Management is not available yet.

    D) If the App owner is logged in to the app they can be upgraded to a role called Boss. If so they can send push messages from the app.

    Send push from app:
    Personal Push:

    Any idea when Access Management will be available? Giving the opportunity to users register themselves by mail is great especially because you cannot import a list of users from csv files for example but they are immediatly granted privileges to see the whole app before someone from the admin side give them the correct accesss or deny them.
    This is a problem for enterprises app when we want only employees or group of employees to be able to register for example.
    Many regards

    Is there an ETA on Access Managment? We absolutely need this for a project we need to get going ASAP. Would LOVE to use AppMachine...this is the only thing holding us back at this point.

    Hello, I love appmachine, but am now restricted in building my next set of apps due to no access management. Any ideas when it will come available? Many thanks

    We're in the same boat as the above. We're unable to easily manage access to the app without the ability to create a new account without first going through a registration process. It's one of the few things stopping us from taking this app to our dealer network.

    Perhaps i'm looking at this the wrong way... actually, being able to authenticate with AD / ADFS instead is where i need to end up in the short to mid-term in terms of registration, granting / revoking app access. Can anyone help with this?

    This feature is useless when it comes to IOS cause apple will reject the app.

    @Bobby: This is only the case if you make user registration in the app a requirement before users can access all the app's content.
