Based on your new blog regarding authentication, can my app support Facebook, google and ms live at the same time? And is group/membership security and/or logging available when using those services?

Thanks

  • The upcoming release 8.5.12.0 does support signing in with OAuth 2.0. You can enable single sign in with Google, Facebook, Windows Live, and Sharepoint Online for the same app. You can have up to four "Login with ..." button on your login form alongside the standard login controls.

    The feature requires either standard or custom membership installed in your database.

    Additional login options are exposed to the user on the login screen when the corresponding configuration entries are detected. By default, the configuration options are stored in the built-in CMS.

    If a user is successfully authenticated by Google, Facebook, Windows Live, or SharePoint Online, then the following will happen:

    * An attempt will be made to locate the user in the membership tables of your app database.

    * If the user is found then the automatic login is performed.

    * If the user is not found then the app will create a user with the same name. Both password and recovery passwords are set to random GUIDs.

    * Default role is assigned (Users)

    * For Google and SharePoint Online it is possible to configure requesting roles from Google Apps or SharePoint.com. The retrieved roles are created/assigned to the user as needed at the moment of login.

    You can override the process of user login and role configuration when needed.

    We are hoping to the get the release out next week.

    There are numerous enhancements and fresh GUI for Touch UI apps:

  • This is a big update. It's purpose is to introduce the foundation for Code On Time v9. We have redesigned the various aspects of Touch UI, to make it work better on larger screens (modal pages). Touch UI has also been changed to support a live-in Project Designer, which will occupy the area on the right hand side of the page.

    Touch UI has also been changed to introduce the foundation of native mobile apps. The account manager feature is introduced specifically for that purpose - http://community.codeontime.com/codeo....

    The brand new theme engine is what we completing right now. Here is the screen shot of a new theme.



    The two other components are the Import action for Touch UI and the all-new Search mechanism. We are weeding out the bugs and finalizing the implementation of these components for the release. The new search is based entirely on the forms engine when it comes to collection of search parameters. You are building a custom form with fields that are matches to the fields of a data controller. Application will create such forms on the fly if a custom form is not available. Search forms are activated when user switches from Quick Find to Advanced Search.

    Hopefully in the next few days the update will be out.
