What Are Login Components?

Fliplet has three (3) login components you can choose from: Fliplet Login, Login, and SAML2 Login.

The Fliplet Login component requires your users to have Fliplet accounts. To start using your app, users need to enter the email address and password for their Fliplet accounts, then log on to your app.

The Login component requires user credentials to be saved to a specific data source. Users can access your apps after their email and password have been verified against the specified data source.

The SAML2 component enables single sign-on authentication for your apps. Once a trusted connection is established between Fliplet and your own SAML2 servers, if your users are logged on to your domain, they can gain access to your apps as well. 

Screen security under App Settings must be set up with these components to properly secure your app.

How to Use the Login Components

Why Use Login Components?

The three login components in Fliplet help simplify the login process for your users. At the same time, they aim to make it easier for organizations to manage their users. 

Fliplet Login is ideal for internal testing with your QA team. However, it is not recommended for many apps, as it requires each user to have a Fliplet account. 

SAML2 Login is the best option for organizations with single sign-on capabilities. Like Fliplet Login, it is ideal for internal apps and makes it easier to manage users within one company.

For most users, Login is the best choice among Fliplet’s security components. With email addresses and passwords residing in a remote database hosted by Fliplet, it remains the most secure option for a majority of apps. 

Your choice of which login component to use ultimately depends on your requirements. 

Options of  Login components

The SAML2 Login component options are not listed here. SAML is an advanced feature and will be discussed in a separate article in the help center.
