Registering and Logging in a User

In order to use user-related features, register users to Kii Cloud with the Kii Cloud SDK or the REST API.

The following three methods are available to identify registered users.

  • Identify a user with entered credentials, such as username and password.

  • Identify a user by creating a pseudo user and retaining its access token on the client.

  • Identify a user with information of an external service account, such as Facebook and Twitter.

This topic explains the method with specifying credentials and the method with using a pseudo user. For the method with using an external service, see Authenticating with an External Service Account.

These three methods can be jointly used as below.

  • An external service account can be associated with a user that was created with credentials, such as a username and password, or a pseudo user.

  • A pseudo user can be migrated to a normal user by setting credentials.
