In another article, we wrote about how to change a user’s password using Backendless Console. There are also ways to change a user’s password using API. In this post, we will review the API that can be used to change the password if a user can log in.
There is an API for loading the very first object created in the table. The first object is determined by the value in the created column – Backendless Database picks the one with the smallest timestamp.
Directories in file storage can be created implicitly as a result of uploading files using the File Service API. Alternatively, a directory can be created using Backendless Console.
Data paging is the process of breaking up a larger set of objects into smaller chunks, commonly referred to as pages. Typically paging applies to the results of search queries when the server may return too many objects at once.
Sending an email is a very common operation for many applications. For most of them, it is the server-side that is responsible for delivering an email message. Backendless makes it trivially easy to deliver a branded email (meaning it will look like it was sent by your app) in the plain text or HTML formats…
The ability to update a user account is a common use-case for user management in applications. Either the users themselves or the admin may need to update user properties. Backendless provides the API for updating user accounts, although app admins/developers can do so using Backendless Console as well.
In another post, we wrote about support for multiple environments for your apps’ mBaaS backend. These could include development, testing, staging and/or production. As your backend advances through those stages, an obvious question is how to migrate the backend’s data from one environment to another. Backendless provides a very advanced facility for backend migration between…
There are instances when you need to disable user registrations for your app. This may be needed if you are going to run a limited beta test of your application and allow only some users in. Alternatively, your app may require manual user registration (or you plan to import users from another system).
Based on my research of the space we are in, Backendless is the only mBaaS platform that lets you use SQL queries when searching for data. The geolocation data managed by Backendless is not an exception.
