Manage Application Summary | Solutions | Zoho Creator Help

Manage Application Summary

The application summary page is a cumulative view of the application in Zoho Creator. This page serves as a common navigation point to branch out into various modules and perform actions relevant to those modules from here, and view the details related to those modules. It provides a dashboard like view for the application and the page houses the following information:
  • Application Details - You can rename the application, change the icon and its color, edit the application URL, and set sign-in options in this section.
  • Environment details - You can enable environments for the application, which lets you manage the application in different environments like development, stage, and production. Learn more 
  • User details - You can add users to access your applications and set roles and permissions for them in this section.
  • Portal details - You can create a customer portal for your application, using which external users can log in and access applications shared with them. Learn more
  • Mobile application details - You can create a mobile app version for your Creator application in this section. Learn more

       Things to Know

    • When Zoho is chosen, you can choose whether to allow federated logins and new sign ups.

      1. Show federated logins

        1. If Yes is chosen, federated sign in options will be shown on the sign in page as displayed in the above image.

        1. If No is chosen, other sign in options will not be shown; only Zoho users can sign in.

      1. Show signup link

        1. If Yes is chosen, the sign up link will be shown; this allows new users to sign up.

        1. If No is chosen, the sign up option will not be shown.

    • If an option other than Zoho is selected, the corresponding service's sign-in page will be displayed upon signing into their account. On successful sign-in, the user will be redirected to their account's homepage. Eg. if Google is chosen as the sign in option, then on accessing the application url, the Google sign in page will be shown. Once the user signs in to google with their credentials, they will be redirected to the required application.

    • Users' whose email addresses have been added in the Users section can only sign in and access the application shared with them.

    • When a new user creates an account using the sign-up link, they can successfully create an account. However, to access the application, the admin must add them as a user in the specific application afterwards.
