datapage security



simple newbie question: I have a login page for users, but do not want them to have to login each time they move to the next data page once inside the app. Should I pass the UserID and password to the next page for authentication or leave the rest of the pages in the app without authentication? If the latter, there is a security risk if someone has a link to a page other than the login page. But I don't want users to be re-entering credentials every time they move around. How is this normally handled? Thanks so much.
I am sure this is covered somewhere, so just point me to the link.

Hello @Sam23,

It looks like you need to enable the "Enable cross-app login option" that is available in the Advanced setting of the Authentication. 

Please check this article https://howto.caspio.com/authentications-and-connections/authentication/authentication/

  • Enable cross-app login – With this option you can enable cross app login to users who already have an active session with another one of your apps that uses the same users table for its authentication. For example if your ticketing system and your sales system are based on the same Employees table, but different authentications object, authorized users who are signed into one app can access the second app without having to login again.

Hey! Just wanted to let you know that Caspio introduced Directories (BETA) on their recent release that may connect and use to your authentication. You may check more information about the release here:


Note that for now, it's currently available as a beta release to corporate-level plans (e.g. Silver, Gold, Platinum).
