Sign in to Starmind & User management

Sign in to Starmind

Single Sign-On over SAML

With Single Sign-on the users can use their company account to login to Starmind. The user base needs to be updated only in one central application. This requires more effort to implement but is better accepted by the users. Also, you don't need to maintain the user base on Starmind as we can create new users on the fly with the first login. 

Simple Login & Self registration

The alternative would be to use a username and password to login to Starmind. You can eighter create the users within Starmind or you can activate "self-registration" then everyone can create the account by himself. "Self-registration" should only be activated for open communities. 

User Management

Manual Approach

Starmind provides a sophisticated user manager for admin users. Admins can create, update or delete users easily. Users can also be searched or filtered by roles, status, etc. Moreover, there is the possibility to Import or Export users with Excel files.

Automated Approach

To reduce the overhead of manually update the user base, Stamrind provides several methods to automate the creation, update, and deletion of users.
