Authenticate a user

6 posts in this topic

Hi!

 

i want to create a timelog App so employees can quickly check on-the-fly tasks and enter the amount of time they've spent on. 

 

my goal is that the user can log-in in my app to see their tasks.

 

is there a way to authenticate a user ?

i understand the getUser() methods but i don't see in the documentation any functions to validate a user name&password.

 

i would need a kind of validateUser(user, pass) method.

 

Thanks !

Hi,

there is currently not a way to create your own login mechanism using the api.

But we have received a lot of requests lately for that type of functionality and are investigating ways to implement it.

For ftrack and ldap users something like you describe would work fine, but not for google logins since they would require some kind of web view.

Let me know what you think.

Cheers

Hi !

thank you.

 

Can we get a function like ftrack.validateUser(user,pass) which returns true or false ? pretty basic but would work for me. 

Or maybe the same implementation that twitter did with the twitter api (oAuth) ?
