The general release of shinyapps.io introduces a new mechanism for authentication and authorization. This system replaces the existing rscrypt based approach and provides a more flexible and manageable flow.
The new authentication system provides several advantages. With it you can: * Add or remove authorized users without restarting the application thereby preserving the sessions of logged in users. * Manage application access through the admin interface (new) * Leverage Google or Github authentication to improve security for your users. * Save your users the burden of managing and maintaining their own user authentication information.
To migrate your application from the old authentication system to the new one you will need to follow these steps:
old_passwords.txtfile. If you were not using email addresses before, you will need to do so at this time. Don’t worry if your users don’t have Google or GitHub accounts, they can always use local authentication through shinyapps.io.
