Overview Video

Connecting to your mobile application to your authentication provider of choice can be as simple as pasting 2 pieces of information. In this video, we'll show you the simplicity and elegance of our process.

Mobile Authentication Simplified

Need to connect to Open ID, Active Directory, OAuth2, SAML or any other acronyms dealing with enterprise identity? Just add a few bits of configuration to a NativeScript Sidekick Template and you'll build an app connected to your identity provider of choice.

As a mobile developer, you know that identity providers are difficult to integrate. You'd rather be working on the more creative parts of app development, right? Download this template and be up and running in 5 minutes.

How it works

Simplified authentication means you can more easily share code and controls across your apps.

How does this work?

This template is integrated with Kinvey, one of our sister products at Progress. Kinvey is a top ranked Backend as a Service product with many other features besides identity connectivity. The application you create with our identity connect template will also be able to use all other Kinvey features like data connectivity, push notifications, microservices, and real-time services.

Can you show me how to do it?

TJ VanToll wrote an excellent article called Enterprise Authentication Made Easier with NativeScript. The article will get you started, then take you step by step through each identity provider implementation. Also, for a limited time, you can take a free video training course on Identity Connect.

What other features are coming?

The next feature on our roadmap will simplify connecting to data sources. You’ll be able to use a configuration based workflow to automate connecting to systems like Sharepoint, SAP, Salesforce, REST endpoints and Microsoft SQL Server.

Will I be charged a fee?

There is no charge to use the new templates. You’ll be automatically provided with a Kinvey Developer tier account at no change, with access to all Kinvey features.
