Readily available for organizations of any size, LiquidFeedback comes with a variety of options for user management.
For smaller organizations, the best solution is to manually add users using the integrated administrative frontend. For medium to large organizations, tailored installations are available to suit your needs.
LiquidFeedback comes with a highly configurable self-registration and accreditation process. Mandatory and optional data fields can be defined for the self-registration form. Upon self-registration, an automated or manual accreditation workflow can be performed. A dedicated user administration frontend is available when self-registration is activated.
LiquidFeedback can make use of existing subscriber databases (e.g. member databases, employee databases, or shareholder databases) to reduce the necessary effort of managing the list of eligible participants of an installation. For this purpose, LiquidFeedback comes with a client implementation of the standard protocol for directory services, the Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) as well as the industry-standard protocol for authorization OAuth 2.0.
LDAP and OAuth 2.0 allow to securely check an existing user database in real-time whenever a participant wants to access LiquidFeedback. In this manner, only eligible participants will get access to LiquidFeedback using their already known credentials.
LiquidFeedback can also provide single sign-on functionality for third-party applications. The included, full-fledged OAuth 2.0 server implementation allows sharing participant authorization information with other components of a participation solution, (e.g. mapping or issue reporting components).
Furthermore, unified user management allows sharing profile data and user settings across different components of a participation solution. This provides seamless integration of LiquidFeedback and other components into a homogeneous platform.
Participants can access all connected components without the need for multiple account registrations, or multiple logins on different platforms. In turn, other applications can rely on LiquidFeedback as an identity provider, including a check whether an internet user has voting privileges in a given setup.
