I need to authenticate a users via mobile tablet.
I’m not able to use the standard approach through Azure and Service Bus as described here https://www.microsoftpressstore.com/articles/article.aspx?p=2240846&seqNum=3 .
The task is the following:
I have 30 sales representatives, each of them has their personal mobile tablet. Each mobile tablet has the same local app that allows to get some certain information from AX;
Sales representatives are not able to be online at every moment. The most likely scenario is that every morning, the sales representative signs in to AX through mobile tablet and update his tablet with current information from AX (like customers’ balance, credit limit and some other) by calling some services (some UserId and TabletId may be passed as parameters);
Every tablet is assigned to concrete Sales representative, thus another Sales representatives is not able to sign in into AX via “not his” tablet;
During the day time, sales representative may request some additional information from AX (like payments and something else…);
We want to create just only ONE user in Active Directory (SalesRepUser), and all sales representatives will be identified through this SalesRepUser;
So, my questions are:
Is it possible to authenticate a user by using another pattern (not Azure and Service Bus)?
If – yes, can somebody share an example?
We just use an eCommerce web portal for this, with custom e-mail/password combination. Sales reps can sign on similar to our customers, however we have built functionality in the web app where they can pick the customer and address details to place it for their assigned customers.
If you insist on user authentication with an Active Directory credential, then your only other option is to use some sort of VPN on the devices to become part of your domain network, then it is just simple Active Directory / domain credentials authentication in your app afterwards.
just want to ask, why you not use Enterprise portal for Sales? This should be also approach. It is out-of-the-box solution you get with AX. You just need SharePoint, deploy portal and publish it online. So your sales can logon with your domain account.
Hi Vilmos, Hi Marek
We can’t use eCommerce since it requires constant online, VPN is also not applicable in my case.
We need something, that after authentication will cache requested data to mobile device. Actually, such application is already developed by us, so we just need to authenticate the User during synchronizing of the data between mobile device and AX. The architecture, that we consider, is the following:
