Configure unauthenticated access
Open your app to the general public by configuring unauthenticated access.
When you create a new app in Appfarm Create, it is configured by default to require authentication. If a user loads the app and they are not logged in, they will be presented with the login screen. To allow users to access your app without logging in, you need to configure unauthenticated access.
Separate “authenticated” and “unauthenticated” functionality into different apps.
If you have some functionality which should be open to the public and other functionality (e.g. an admin dashboard) that is restricted to authenticated users, we recommend building these as distinct apps. This way it is easier to maintain data security and you avoid having to write extra logic to handle the authentication status of a given user.
In the video below, an deprecated option is demonstrated: Previously, you had to tick "Public Access" in App Settings. This option has been removed after the video was recorded. Whether an App has public access or not is now derived from the Permissions to the App.
Follow the checklist below to configure unauthenticated access.
