Best way to handle multi-user access


  • Hi All,

    I have a project with a requirement for many users (potentially several hundred) to access dashboards, where each user might receive a different view based on a set of rights (group membership?).

    I know I can create many user accounts and groups within Mango, but given there could be several hundred users to manage, I'd like to use an external system for authentication and possibly group membership/rights management such as Active Directory, Google, Facebook etc.

    Alternately, if we do use Mango's internal user/group management system, what are the practical limits? Is there access via the API to manage user accounts so I can author a management system that would ideally also include 'ooops, I forgot my password' functionality?

    Cheers!

  • @shaun One of our engineers was working on or at least looking into adding LDAP authentication which I believe should work with Active Directory. I'll look into what happened there.

    As for Google/Facebook, I think you are talking about OAuth, which probably isn't the best fit for Mango as many of our customers use Mango in locations without internet access.

    There should be no issues with hundreds of users.

    There is a REST API for creating, updating and deleting users. We really should have a "reset your password" option which sends an email, I will see if I can get it included in the v3.3 release.


  • Thanks @Jared-Wiltshire :)


  • Was there any more info available with regards to LDAP availability? @Jared-Wiltshire
