2 Scaling Scoold up - Pro vs Pro Unlimited

One pod can definitely handle thousands of users, if it has enough memory and cpu.

  1. One pod for Para and one for Scoold should be enough
  2. Try adding more CPU or memory if necessary
  3. Scoold Pro and Scoold Pro unlimited are the same product, but with unlimited you can run Scoold Pro on any number of hosts.
  4. Use CloudSQL or Mongo Atlas

4 Any database preference for Scoold?

You are right - the schema for SQL databases is pretty simple. I wouldn't say document DBs are preferred over RDMBSs, it's just that Para is a schemaless backend server so the data fits better inside a document DB. In other words Para expects data in any kind of structure.

6 on-prem HTTPS and para console

Yes, to both questions.

  1. You can enable HTTPS in the JVM using Spring Boot's configuration properties, or use nginx instead.

  2. The Para Web Console is an open source project - simply clone it and use it however you like. It's 100% client-side, so it doesn't really matter if you host it locally or not.

2 How to manually interact with the para database?

Of course, you can use the regular SQL browsing tools for your database to interact with the data. Another option is to use console.paraio.org to browse the data inside a Para app. It's a simple web console for CRUD operations on objects.

2 Is it possible to get logs ?

SAML passwords cannot be reset from Scoold.
Usually SAML errors are due to incorrect mapping of attributes, similar to this one:

Missing values for SAML attributes 'name', 'FirstName', 'LastName'.

Make sure you set the names of attributes to match your SAML attributes:

# attribute mappings (usually required)
# e.g. urn:oid:0.9.2342.19200300.100.1.1
para.security.saml.attributes.id = ""
# e.g. urn:oid:0.9.2342.19200300.100.1.3
para.security.saml.attributes.email = ""
