I am familiar with the SG 1.4 support for OpenID Connect as described here: https://developer.couchbase.com/documentation/mobile/1.4/guides/authentication/index.html
How about the upcoming 1.5 GA ? Will there be changes, or new ways to authenticate a sync gateway user ?
I am interested in new features that are available to a CB Lite.net client (Xamarin on Android, iOS, and UWP)
There aren’t any changes in SG 1.5 w.r.t supported authentication methods. Are you looking for something specific ?
To clarify- if you are talking about CB Lite.net, then it’s the 2.0 release which will be out later this year. The 2.0 developer builds are available for download
Tagging @borrrden to confirm feature parity between 2.0 and 1.4 versions of the lite.net client
There will not be any new ways to authenticate users, but all the old ones should remain (OpenID has not been implemented yet but as far as I know it will be before the release).
