In addition to permissions and consent management, KWS offers out-of-the-box user account management. This includes a customisable multi-app single sign-on (SSO) view that handles user sign-up and sign-in on all your KWS-managed apps.
These are the main differences between a ‘KWS user account management’ environment and the standard ‘own user account management’ environment.
- No need to build your own authentication flow. You can use the KWS-provided multi-app SSO view instead. The KWS SSO view handles functionality such as random display name generation, permissions requests, and password reset requests.
- KWS stores your app user accounts.
- You use the My Apps > Users tab to view and manage your users.
Here is a roadmap for setting up your KWS environment with user account management:
|1||* Create your KWS app||In the KWS Control Panel, create your KWS app and|
configure it for your chosen sign-up/sign-in flow.
Apply your own branding and localisation if required.
|2||Choose your authentication flow||Choose your authentication/authorisation and permissions management flow.|
|3||* Set up permissions||Liaise with your Implementation Manager to define and|
set up the permissions that are required for kids to use
In the KWS Control Panel, view the permissions and add
localisation and branding, if required.
|4||Set up display names|
|In the KWS Control Panel, set up the nouns and|
adjectives that will be used to randomly generate a unique display name on user creation, if required.
|5||Configure the KWS SSO view||Configure the URL for the KWS-provided SSO view to include the specific functionality that you require for your app.|
|6||* Set up webhooks||Set up any webhooks that you require.|
