Understand authentication

This help page is for users in Creator 6. If you are in the older version (Creator 5), click here. Know your Creator version.

Authentication is the process or action of verifying the identity of a user of the portal. Zoho Creator allows you to choose between different authentication mechanisms by which the portal user should be authenticated. The different methods listed in the Authentication page are as follows:

  • Default portal login - This option will use the unique login credentials of the user which was generated while signing up to the Portal. This option will be enabled by default. The federated login option will enable portal users to use their Google or Facebook accounts to login to the portal. Learn more about the federated login.
  • SAML Authentication - This option will create a Single sign on (SSO) framework by which the portal users can access the portal by using a third party identity provider.
