To enable communications between, for example, your application and the data in an external database, you need to locate and apply the universally unique identifier (UUID). A UUID can also be required for enabling a password reset to ensure that a unique code can be applied.
Note: You need to have one or more authentication profiles defined. See below for details on creating an authentication profile. You can create a temporary profile linked to a temporary model where you are in the early stages of developing your application. See Creating an Authentication profile below for details.
Where you already have created one or more authentication profiles, you can navigate to the Authentication profiles for your application.
Open the Tools (A) menu from the builder bar and select Authentication profiles (B).
The Authentication profiles list is displayed. Click on a profile (C). Once selected, the details for the UUID (D) are reflected in the URL for the profile as shown in the following example.
You can copy and paste the UUID details where required.
Creating an Authentication profile
The following contains an example of how you can create an Authentication profile. You need to have a model for assigning for creating profiles. The following contains an example of a WebUser profile:
1. Create a model. In this example, the model WebUser (A) has been created.
2. Add properties (B) to the model based on the specified Type:
- Password / Type: Password
- Username / Type: Email address (C).
Once you have created the model, you can create an authentication profile based on the model.
To create an authentication profile:
3. Navigate to the Authentication profiles page by opening the Tools (A) menu from the builder bar and selecting Authentication profiles (B). A message indicating that no profiles exist is displayed.
Click on the New profile (C) button to open the pane for defining an authentication profile. Complete the fields in the pane. Specify a name (D) for the profile. Complete the details for the model (E) and the properties details required based on the model defined in Step 2 above.
Specify a login page (F) from the list of pages available and Save (G) the profile.
The newly created profile (H) is displayed in the list of profiles
