Making login system with custom database


I would like to create a login system using a custom database connection. Is this a possibility or should I just use te Outsytems user database? 


Hello Elias,

This is possible - you can change the Login logic for any application to suit your needs. However, it would be considerably easier to use the existing OutSystems Users logic/data model - there would be less development time and maintenance required.

Can you tell us a bit more about your usecase? You could consider automating User creation and having a Timer that periodically fetches new Users/Permissions from your database connection, and then writing them into the User Entity. This way, you could maintain the existing authentication logic.

Not using the user OutSystems database can not put some licence issues?
