Multi-Apps Configuration and Management

In our most recent product release, we shared with you all the ability to configure multiple applications with Frontegg. In this blog, we’ll take a deeper dive into what all that entails and how we believe this new capability will help transform how you can manage your users in a scalable way.

Understanding Multi-Application Configuration

Understanding the management of multiple applications with a single platform like Frontegg introduces a significant advancement in how developers can organize and differentiate their software solutions. With the ability to create unique applications with their own client IDs for each application, developers can now create specifically branded experiences for each of their customers.

The ability to manage multiple applications through a single platform like Frontegg marks a substantial leap forward for developers looking to streamline their software ecosystems. This functionality allows for the efficient setup and management of various applications, each potentially serving different user bases or purposes, directly from the Frontegg dashboard. By centralizing the configuration of these applications, developers can effectively handle diverse application settings and user access controls – all in one place. This is especially powerful in environments where different applications require different security settings, features, and user permissions. For example, a company might manage both an internal employee portal and an external-facing service, each with customized configurations, under the same overarching system. This consolidation significantly enhances operational efficiency, ensuring coherent management of user identities and access controls across the entire suite of applications. 

Step-by-Step Guide to Configuring Multiple Applications

Configuring multiple applications within Frontegg’s dashboard is a streamlined process designed to accommodate the specific needs of different development environments. Here’s how you can set up each application within your project:

  1. Login to the Frontegg Dashboard: Begin by signing into your Frontegg dashboard using your credentials. This is your control center, where you can manage all aspects of your applications.
  2. Select the Environment: Once logged in, select the environment for which you want to create the application. This could be your development, staging, or production environment, depending on where the application is in its lifecycle.
  3. Navigate to Applications: In the dashboard, locate and click on the “Applications” tab, typically found on the left-hand side. This section is dedicated to all application-related configurations.
  4. Create a New Application: Within the Applications tab, click the “Create New” button. This will open a form where you can enter details about the new application such as the url it will be hosted at or if it should be assigned to new users by default
  5. Configure the Application: Fill out the necessary fields to define your application’s attributes. Once created, the application will appear in your dashboard.

From here, the configuration process extends to setting up how users are associated with the application. You can assign default application memberships for new users, ensuring they gain immediate access to necessary tools upon registration. Furthermore, Frontegg allows you to specify which user pools should have access to each application. It’s vital to note that these assignments can overlap: you can set multiple user pools to access the same application or allow a single user pool to access multiple applications. We have tried our best to give you an identity management solution that allows you to flexibly define identity in a way that suits your particular use case.
