Question 1: Can I require users to create an account since access to all the content is restricted?

Question 2: Does entitlement work the reverse way? If someone creates an account in my DPS app, can they log into our website and access the same content on the website that they can the app?

Question 3: With the new DPS Web Viewer can I read something in my app and pick up the same collection in the same location of the same multi-page article and visa versa if the only way to view content on our website is through Web Viewer?

That's all for now, but I'm sure I'll have more questions soon.

Hi David,

Question 1: Can I require users to create an account since access to all the content is restricted?

For iOS and Android this may be possible through in-app messaging, although I haven't seen an example yet. In-App messaging is a capability available through the Mobile Marketing SDK. Check this article for details: Digital Publishing Solution Help | Analytics for DPS 2015

For web viewer you may be able to achieve something by creating a free article with details on how to get access to the content, but there is no "welcome screen" type functionality.

Question 2: Does entitlement work the reverse way? If someone creates an account in my DPS app, can they log into our website and access the same content on the website that they can the app?

For this case would you be using the DPS 2015 web viewer, or your own hosted content? For the first case this would definitely work. It should also work for the second use case, although you would need to handle the content access separately.


Question 3: With the new DPS Web Viewer can I read something in my app and pick up the same collection in the same location of the same multi-page article and visa versa if the only way to view content on our website is through Web Viewer?

No, the location isn't retained.
