Access control - introduction

The Genesis low-code platform has a collection of access control mechanisms to ensure that:

  • only authenticated users can have access to your application
  • within the application, users have access to specific data and functions, which is controlled dynamically.

The platform can use a variety of authentication functions, including Single Sign-On (SSO) authentication, username and password authentication, and Multi-factor authentication.

The password authentication can be configured to use an internal store of users, LDAP to communicate with an external service, or a combination of both.

For more information about LDAP, see Wikipedia.

Once a user has been authenticated, the authorisation systems allow for a user's access to be further restricted to particular function and items of data.

This authorisation is performed on a group basis, not on individual users; however, you can have groups with only one member.
