User Service or Storage Service for saving users without email and password?

0 votes

My app doesn't require email and password for user. it should just create a user and store/access its addition info. So, because email and password are mendatory, should i use some junk values OR should i forget about User Services and directly use Storage Service to save users and related data????

Hi Abhishek,

Yes, you can use Storage service directly to store the user related information. All services(modules) in App42 Cloud API are independent to each other.


Let me know if you have any other queries.

Is there a performance difference for "account management" between the fit-to-purpose UserService and the more generic StorageService once you get to 1) thousands, 2) hundred-thousands, 3) millions of users?  Are queries against UserService vs. the JSON-oriented StorageService faster?
