User groups

Applivery provides a very easy way to manage multiple conditions while managing access to Distribution Sites under your App Store.As you probably already know, App Distribution allows you to secure access in 3 different ways.One of them is the Private option, which enables authentication and log in before accessing the App either with Applivery login or Custom Single Sign On.When choosing that option, you will be able to also define which groups of users will be able to access after a successful login.

You can add as many groups as you want by using AND and OR clauses:

  • Groups within the same line will be considered as AND operators
  • Each new line (set of groups) will be treated as an OR regarding the previous ones.
For example, let’s suppose that you want to enable access to a given App to the users belonging to both groupOne AND group groupTwo OR  groupThree, then you will have to configure it this way:
  • groupOne, groupTwo
  • groupThree
Below you can see what that configuration looks like in the Dashboard:

Managing groups in Single Sign-On scenarios (LDAP or SAML) #

As mentioned before, you can limit which users will have access to your Distribution Sites when they are defined as Private (read more about Android or Apple Private App Stores here). In addition, Applivery will capture the user groups from your User Directory from the ones defined as OU (Organization Units).

User groups will be synced every time a user performs a login action and will be prefixed with ldap: or saml: (i.e.: ldap:group1, ldap:group2, saml:group3).

This feature will allow you to differentiate between the groups defined in Applivery (that will not be prefixed) and the ones coming from your SSO integration. Note that all user groups associated with the user will be overwritten on every new login so if you add or remove a new group to the user in your User Directory, it will not be synced in Applivery until the user performs a new login in your App Store.
