The roadmap covers the remaining months of the year 2023 and offers a glance at the year 2024.
The primary objective of our development is to deliver to production the new tooling for developers. App Studio is the groundbreaking development platform embedded in the live applications. Developers without prior knowledge of Code On Time will become experts in building and maintaining apps that run online and offline.
Roadmap 2023 - 2024 discusses App Studio, Workflow Links, App Identity, Serverless Apps, Database Builder, Content Hub, Data-Driven Surveys, ACL Editor, and .NET Core.
Many organizations adopt security systems that require their users to enter a numeric time-based verification code generated by an authenticator app installed on the user’s mobile device. The unique secret key is associated with the user account in the application database. Authenticator app uses the same secret to generate a new verification code periodically and does not require a network interaction with the application. The server-side code generates the verification code in real time and compares it to the one provided by the user. If the correct verification code is not provided at the time of sign in, then the access to the application is not granted even if the user is entering the correct username and password combination.
The username, password, verification code in the text message or email, and the phone with the authenticator app with optional fingerprint scan or face recognition are the components of the multi-factor authentication.
Developers rely on a variety of platforms to deliver mobile apps. It is easy to set up the user authorization with an application created with Code On Time. The embedded RESTful API Engine implements OAuth 2.0 protocol with multiple authorization flows. Native applications can be programmed to have enterprise level security with little effort. The lesson explains how to configure Postman, the popular API development tool, to get the access tokens from the RESTful Backend Application. Any native client app will implement a similar pattern of authorization.
