I have a requirement where a non-Appian user needs to access data in Appian system either through SAIL form or in any other way and provide his/her inputs against the each field of Appian data which I need to capture back into Appian system. I have studied about Embedded Interface but as per my understanding it also requires to enter Appian credentials for accessing the Embedded Interface. Can anyone suggest me the best approach for achieving this requirement. Thanks in Advance
The easiest solution is to make them an Appian user. The platform is designed for named users. You cannot show an Appian interface to an unauthenticated user (including embedded).
Communicating with non-Appian users can be done through email parsing (which is difficult to implement well) or you can design your own interfaces in a differently technology than Appian (but communicate with Appian using Appian Web APIs). Please check the Appian licencing agreement when doing these methods to ensure doing so is not a violation.
Thanks Steven for your suggestion. We would be discussing with client about possible approaches and would proceed accordingly. I think the approaches possible are one would be making them Appian user other by accessing data from Appian through web API and showing it in an interface designed outside Appian.
