Codeless OAuth API & Email API Attachments

Our OAuth API, which allows you to get the full benefits of third-party OAuth login, was initially only available for use via our SDKs. Now, we have added a new Codeless block so your application can include login with the likes of Facebook, Twitter, Google, Amazon, LinkedIn, Discord, GitHub, Spotify, and more!

Secure OAuth 2.0 Login Support

Backendless now supports OAuth 2.0 integration for your apps.

How to Validate User Properties With Regular Expressions

  When working with data, particularly user-submitted data, you often need to validate it. For example, if we are creating a database in which there is a “site” field and corresponding IP address field, it would be very useful to ensure that the data written to these fields is in the appropriate format.

How to Customize Session Timeouts

Once a user of a Backendless-powered app logs in, a session is established. For a variety of reasons, including application security, it is best not to allow users to remain logged in indefinitely. Therefore, every session has an inactivity timeout timer that is reset with every new API call made within the session. When the…

Dynamic User Definition With the Registration API

The “email” property is configured as identity by default, meaning its value should be passed into the login API request.

When you register (or update) a user object, you may need to create a relation between the user and some other entity/object stored in your Backendless Database. Since a user object is structurally a collection of properties, it is very easy to…

Required User Properties for User Registrations

In another article discussing user management, we covered how to use the user registration API to register users for your app. When registering a user, your app sends a collection of user registration properties to the server. Values for these properties typically come from a registration form in your app. Some form fields may be…

How to Delete Users via API or Backendless Console

There will often be times when you want to delete users from your database, whether it’s to purge old users or to allow users to delete their own account. Backendless supports two methods for deleting a user: using the API or using Backendless Console. The API approach is described using the code below.

How to Change a User’s Password via API (If the User Can Login)

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.
