Let's say that we have an already existing backend application. We want to integrate it into the MindSphere launchpad as an external application.
This application already provides its own navigation bar with a logout button (in fact, navigation in two levels).
Now, according to the mdsp documentation, it's mandatory to integrate the MindSphere OS Bar into the application. The issue we are having, is that:
Could anybody from the MindSphere team, or maybe anybody that faced this, how to approach the issue?
Hi @dlouzan ,
we want to provide every user of an MindSphere application the same user experience. Therefore, it is important for us that the MindSphere OS Bar is included. Especially from a legal perspective as it shows as the support, legal information of an operator and more to users. From your description i can derive that you are working with a login behind a login, which we also would like to avoid.
Normally we encourage to integrate external applications in a way that, they can handle your own users and MindSphere users coming in with our bearer token.
I agree with dlouzan (the legend of this forum)
We are working on self-hosted applications. They will use Google's Material Design, and putting a MindSphere OS Bar on top of that will look weird and I can't see that it provide value for the end users. Using legal purposes as an argument for having the OS Bar does not make sense to me.
It's also unclear for me, what the requirement "Your self-hosted application uses the MindSphere Identity Management" actually mean? We want to manage the users in our own system and use the technical user in the background. Is that not allowed?
