Guest Login


The Guest Login feature allows guest access to an application without the need for user registration or login. At the same time, it allows the administrator to control the level of guest user access for the application.

When a customer chooses to login as a guest, only an access token is generated. A cidaas account is not created. The customer does not need to enter any e-mail address or phone number.

With the generated access token, the customer is able to use the app services, for e.g. to add items to their shopping cart and complete the order by making payment.

This feature can be used to assign roles to a guest users to define what services they can access and more. Guest Login is available under Advanced Settings on cidaas. Enabling this feature is very easy as shown below.
