Frontegg OverviewUNIXBusinessApplication

What is Frontegg?

Frontegg is a developer platform that enables self-service, security and enterprise-capabilities through a rich user-management interface, freeing up creativity and differentiation.

Frontegg's platform doesn’t just provide you with Authentication & SSO via an embeddable login-box, but a full Admin Portal serving as the Settings area for your users.

The Admin Portal allows your users to control every aspect of their accounts: manage users & teams, define and assign roles & permissions, get visibility through audit logs, subscribe to webhooks, and much more.

Frontegg’s interfaces are embedded as a UI layer within your app and becomes a customer-facing management interface for your end-users, both on the personal and workspace levels. Frontegg also powers-up your backend through rich SDKs supported in various languages and frameworks.

Pricing: Starts at $249/m

Easy to integrate with a great admin portal layer and seamless onboarding

What is our primary use case?

It all started from an SSO request from a customer, leading us to solutions such as Okta and Auth0. We weren’t sure Frontegg was the right solution for us since the authentication space is really leaning towards the competitors. We then found so many valuable features we didn’t even know we could use Frontegg for and realized how powerful their customer-facing approach is. The decision was very easy to make and we were up and running in a week. The platform gave us much more than auth capabilities. Frontegg openly shared its roadmap and it's really nice to know most of the things on their… more »

Pros and Cons

  • "The admin portal layer is super useful and saves valuable front-end development time."
  • "We're hoping to see more user management-related features, according to Frontegg's roadmap."

Intuitive with reCaptcha integration and helpful technical support

What is our primary use case?

Our company provides multiple cloud-based solutions to clients. All of these solutions support granular permissions, multi-tenancy, Captcha, and MFA. Our servers are Python-based (Flask, Fast-API) and the frontend is on React. On our main solution, our users can exclusively access the pre-loaded data, that our automated systems analyze. This has to be carefully exposed to users by tenants, which Frontegg provides out-of-the-box. We also require flexible roles that can access multiple tenants for testing reasons, and that's also supported easily.

Pros and Cons

  • "The MFA policy via Frontegg allows us to enable/disable/enforce the Multi-Factor Authentication policy of our users and to enhance security and adhere to modern standards."
  • "The web interface is missing a way to delete a workspace. I have accidentally created a workspace and was not able to delete it. It's a minor thing that should be supported."

Great granularity for roles and permissions and is multi-tenant by design

What is our primary use case?

We were looking for a user management solution to manage our different users and to associate each user with the organization they belong to, and allow users to be able to view only the data of their organization. We also wanted to allow them to invite more members from their organization to the platform. Our challenges involved onboarding new organizations as fast as possible and allowing different users to have certain features. Our primary use case was to integrate the admin portal and allow our customers to add users, assign roles and permissions, and more.

Pros and Cons

  • "Every feature is multi-tenant by design, making different customer requests effortless to provide."
  • "Frontegg is fairly stable, however, we are looking forward to some promised capabilities, such as more tightly integrated Feature Flag support."

Great technical support, excellent webhooks, and has been very stable

What is our primary use case?

We needed a quick solution to implement webhooks. Frontegg was a nice choice because they provide plug-in React components for the frontend management UI. Given that we didn't have to build our own frontend, we were able to implement a webhook feature pretty quickly, and we also have the door open to using other Frontegg features in the future. In addition, I was most impressed with Frontegg's quick turnaround to fix bugs and implement feature improvements.‎‎‎‎‎‎‎‎‎‎‎‎‎‎‎‎‎‎‎‎‎‎‎‎‎‎‎‎‎‎‎‎‎‎‎‎‎‎‎‎‎‎‎

Pros and Cons

  • "Their developers were always willing to meet even though we are in very different time zones."
  • "The PHP SDK is limited. It's not a huge deal as we can just use their web API directly, but it is something to note if you're using PHP.‎‎‎‎‎‎‎‎‎‎‎‎‎‎‎‎‎‎‎‎‎‎‎‎‎‎‎‎‎‎‎‏‏‎ ‎‏‏‎ ‎‏‏‎ ‎‏‏‎ ‎‏‏‎"

Gives us everything we need to ensure that our customers have a safe and reliable authentication system

What is our primary use case?

Our primary use case is for SSO for our SAAS product. We are a multitenets product that requires specific authentication use cases for each customer. We found the integration with third parties like Gmail/LinkedIn/LDAP with a reliable Audit Log and security to be valuable. The integration was very fast and increased our development effort.

Pros and Cons

  • "It has Audit Log and many cool features that if we were to develop them by ourselves, it would require a lot of research and development resources. Frontegg gives us everything we need to ensure that our customers have a safe and reliable authentication system in which they can also manage some of the features and roles by themself which gives them more control over their environment."
  • "It would be nice to have a backup export with all tenant/users so that in case of a mistake we can have the option to restore the users."
