Hello Team, I am creating an application using Mendix. This application authenticates user using Google or Facebook. Now, does this user needs to be there in Mendix database also? I read couple of articles and it says we need to create a user account through admin page. If the answer is yes, then I would like to know what is the need for it ? Also, how can I achieve the same for my application? Regards Alpa
Google and Facebook use OAuth, and there is a module for that. You can find it here.

Yes, your Mendix-app does need to have users and those users do need to have roles.
The need is the because the Mendix Engine needs them in the authorization logic.
