A Rownd application contains a unique code snippet that, when injected across your product, provides user authentication to your platform. Within your Rownd application, you can define and customize authentication methods, data types, and more. You can also connect a Rownd application to your existing tools with Integrations. It is likely that one Rownd application is enough to span all aspects of your product, but you can create multiple Rownd apps in your account as needed. However, a user session cannot span multiple applications.

Your application name is used in all verification messages used to authenticate your users. We recommend using the name of your company or product for your application name.

Edit an application

Rownd creates a sample application during initial account setup. You can edit it to suit your needs.

Modify the name, description, and logo of your existing application from the Settings tab.

  1. On the Settings tab, set the Application name and Application description as desired.

  2. Drag and drop a logo (PNG or SVG) into the Application logo area, or click within it to display a file picker.

  3. Press Save edits when finished.

Create a new application

You may want to create additional applications for separate products or for dev/test environments.

To create a new application:

  1. Click the application dropdown in the top left corner, and select Create new application from the list.

  2. In the next screen, enter an application name. Optionally, provide a description and logo.

  3. Press Create.

  4. Your newly created app will open to its Home tab.

Switch to another application

If you have multiple Rownd applications, you can switch between them using the application switcher.

  1. Press the application switcher in the top left corner of the sidebar.

  2. Select a different application from the list of applications.

Not seeing the application you’re looking for?

  • Try selecting switch account in the top right dropdown menu to see if the application you are looking for is associated with a different account.

  • Are you signed in with the correct user identifier (e.g., email address)? It’s possible that the application you are looking for is associated with an account your current user doesn’t have access to. Try signing out and signing back in with a different email address or social provider.

Delete an application

If you wish to delete an application, you can delete it from the Settings tab.

  1. From the Settings tab, scroll to the bottom and press Delete application.

  2. In the modal that appears, confirm you want to delete the app by pressing Delete.

Deleting your Rownd application completely removes all application data from Rownd. If the application is being used to authenticate users in your product, deleting it will prevent any further registrations or authentications.
