Offloading user management to third party service

Filed under: screams — Bharat Kondeti @ 11:04 pm

While registering for a free online training on Play Framework from TypeSafe, noticed that they were using a third party service called Stormpath for their user management.

This is very interesting because user management is a tedious process and top of it having different roles, adds to the complexity. I had a first hand experience on user management when building a Grails application that required user registration and having different roles for users. At that time I used Acegi Security plugin that worked very well, but still managing user data, email validations, role management was a tedious process.

Using a third party service and their API totally makes sense when you are not worried about user data and you need a quick time to market
