9 Front end flexibility of scoold

You use your own CSS file by setting para.stylesheet_url = "http://url.to/your_style.css". Apart from that, anything can be modified if you're comfortable recompiling the project with Maven.

6 on-prem HTTPS and para console

Yes, to both questions.

  1. You can enable HTTPS in the JVM using Spring Boot's configuration properties, or use nginx instead.

  2. The Para Web Console is an open source project - simply clone it and use it however you like. It's 100% client-side, so it doesn't really matter if you host it locally or not.

5 Does the pro version support login through Web Forms via Token Based Auth?

EDIT: Custom authentication is now supported by Para and implemented in Scoold Pro.

If your serverside implements OAuth 2.0, LDAP or SAML, then yes. Anything else would require custom authentication code running on the Para backend.

4 Any database preference for Scoold?

You are right - the schema for SQL databases is pretty simple. I wouldn't say document DBs are preferred over RDMBSs, it's just that Para is a schemaless backend server so the data fits better inside a document DB. In other words Para expects data in any kind of structure.

2 Creating Slack integration

David, that's a cool idea! We should discuss this further via email or on Gitter. You're talking about 2 features here - first is the Slack bot and the second is a Scoold integration with the Slack API.

This will be a premium feature and will be available in Scoold Pro.

2 How to manually interact with the para database?

Of course, you can use the regular SQL browsing tools for your database to interact with the data. Another option is to use console.paraio.org to browse the data inside a Para app. It's a simple web console for CRUD operations on objects.

2 Is it possible to get logs ?

SAML passwords cannot be reset from Scoold.
Usually SAML errors are due to incorrect mapping of attributes, similar to this one:

Missing values for SAML attributes 'name', 'FirstName', 'LastName'.

Make sure you set the names of attributes to match your SAML attributes:

# attribute mappings (usually required)
# e.g. urn:oid:0.9.2342.19200300.100.1.1
para.security.saml.attributes.id = ""
# e.g. urn:oid:0.9.2342.19200300.100.1.3
para.security.saml.attributes.email = ""

2 How can I translate?

Here's the whole language file in English: https://github.com/Erudika/scoold/blob/master/src/main/resources/lang_en.properties

You can also go to the Translate page and translate there. It would be slower as all translated strings have to be approved first.

**If you translate the whole language file, please notify me or create a Pull Request on GitHub and I'll add it to the project as the official tra...
