Manage your application access and security controls

The ability to effectively manage access to your application based on roles, hierarchy, and organizational needs is known as user management.

In simpler terms, it's about regulating who can access your application, how much of it can be accessed, and what actions can be performed when accessing it.

Zoho Creator's user management controls allow organizations to track, monitor, authorize, and easily restrict user access throughout the application's lifecycle with single clicks. This makes sure your application and its data are secure, you gain total transparency on app modifications, and it provides a seamless user experience.

Zoho Creator's user management tool allows you to deliver frictionless login experiences, provide instant access to user resources based on their roles, centralize and synchronize all user identities securely, and do much more to ensure your organization's user data is protected at all times.

Multiple apps, one login

Provide a seamless login experience to users with single sign-on (SSO). It allows users to access different services using the same sign-in page and authentication credentials, thereby reducing the risk of password fatigue. Creator also supports SAML for single sign-on, which simplifies integration with your company's identity provider, like LDAP and ADFS. Moreover, with the ADSync tool, you can maintain all user identities in a single place and eliminate the time required to manage users and groups manually.
