About KWS kid account management

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:

* Steps 1, 3, and 6 are the same whether you are using KWS user account management or not. For those steps, the links below take you to the common sections of the documentation.
