Login Page Type Tutorial    
This topic is assigned to Victor Robu

Seattle Clouds allows its customers to have user accounts in their apps. This has become possible since we have designed a Login page type.

To add a Login page to the resources of your app you can do the following: go to your app's DashboardEdit Pages → + Add New Page. In the menu of all our page types select Login and click Create.

Login page editing options are available only to the designers of an app. So if you decide that users should be able to register their own accounts in your app, you will have to provide them their credentials, namely login and password.



To add a new user account to your app click on the + at the bottom of the list of all users. In the window just below provide login and password for the user as well as a target page of your app to which he or she will be redirected after successful logging in.

For example the picture above represents credentials of the user "Alex" who's password is "p455w0rd". He will be redirected to a page called Podcast.html which other users might not have a right to access.

Is it not possible to set the login, so that the login turnes up when you start up the app?

Yes, simply put it on the first tab of your app.
Maybe I'm missing something but putting the log-in simply on the first tab in a four tab app still allows for any user to bypass the log-in on tab 1 and press ta2, 3, etc.

Hi, i would like to have everyone who uses my app to have a membership, is it possible for them to have a simple registration process.  So rather than a user account i would like membership accounts? Cheers.

Hello, Ian

You can use an In-App Purchase for iOS apps to do that. Unfortunately we don’t have In-app Billing enabled for the Android apps, but we are looking forward to enable it in the future.

Hi Please could you elaborate on how it is possible for users to somehow register for their membership rather than myself have to submit usernames and passwords for each user?

Hello,
I like this form. But I came across one problem. Is it possible to logout user if successfully logded in?
The reason of that is. I have demo application using preview app. And I'd like to show that content of application is changing if I'm loging as different user.

Hello, Lucia

You can use our custom logout:// URL scheme. For more information please visit this tutorial.

Hi,

Is it possible to make some pages private, so only members can see them

Yes, Wassim

This is the main purpose of this page type. The target link to which a user is redirected after a successful log in is suggested to be hidden from the public.

Looking forward to this tutorial.
Bump. What's the word on this? Can a user simply bypass a login page by going to other tabs?
I just tested, a login page on the first tab does not keep a user from going to other tabs. So apparently it's only use is to password-protect inner (non-tab) pages. You can't block users from using the app without logging in. Is this the intention?

Is there a way to make a Registration Page?
so you do not have to provide the data to the clients, or is there a way to receive the credentials, from an off-app location then dive back into the app? for instance a facebook login?
i have a same question! or after register, or paid, automatic email sent to new users w/ log-in infor?
This is a great question. I think he's referring to OpenID and Facebook and Twitter's options to "Login Using ____". This would be a great feature, although it would be better suited for the In-App Purchase page type instead. I can't wait until the In-App Purchase is available for Android. Including OpenID/Facebook/Twitter credentials as an option to register and login would be wonderful! :)
This would be interesting, but you know it seems like a lot of the page type programming is really sort of grade schoolish, sort of disappointing, I think they could do a lot better if they had some initiative.

I put my login no. and password but it does not direct me to the target, it does nothing, whats up with it mate.
I am guessing that the log in button is a push notification which wont work until the app is registered with the app store, but I would like your comment Vlad
I have the same issue, it does not redirect me to the target page.

don't work for me, it only says 

404 - File or directory not found.

then i change the target, like 15 times, but it just say the same.
Sorry for bad english, im from denmark
i think it had worked 1 time but not now
This is typically because you must change the button or element pointing to your page to the new page name name. So if it was pointing to NewPage.html initially, you must point it to the new page name. Or, try deleting the element altogether and recreating it to point to the correct page.

Good luck!

Is there a way to import users and their passwords from one lists or .csv document?


Aug 23, 2012 05:13 AM
Yes, Jorge

User accounts can be pasted in the app.xml file if you can generate it properly. Note how they are saved if you add them via visual wizard.

I hope this helps.
