difference between user application and User provider module

Hi All,

Due to some reason we have decided to make an application as user provider. But I am not getting any more details about how to create that, how to declare that app as user provider, what will be different in user provider application from default user app.

Hello Ankita. 

Different User Providers help "isolate" the users. For example, you can't see, from your application using Users as the User Provider, the IT users, but they are stored in the same entity.

The easiest way to create a user provider, probably, is to clone the Users module, give it a name and customize it to your needs. Then, when creating a module, if you choose your new module as User Provider, the users will be isolated from the others.

Cheers.
