    What is my Hudu Instance URL?

Your Hudu instance URL address is the web address used to access the sign-in page of your Hudu instance. For example "demo.huducloud.com."

*Note: no trailing slashes or directories.

 

Connect the Mobile App to Your Hudu Instance

Once you obtain your Hudu Instance URL, tap the Hudu instance URL text field in the mobile app and enter your Hudu instance. You may connect to a new Hudu instance anytime when on this screen or from within the mobile app settings.

    Instance URL can be entered with or without a leading "https://".

Both of the following would be valid inputs:

  • demo.huducloud.com
  • https://demo.huducloud.com

 

Tap the done button on your mobile keyboard to start the connecting process.

   Please note! You'll need to make sure to enable the mobile app in the Admin>> External Apps section of your Hudu instance.

If the app is unable to connect to your instance for a number of reasons (incorrect instance url, no network connectivity, etc...). The app will display that there was an error.

If the below screen prompts, please confirm your Hudu instance URL is correct, and you have internet connectivity. Then, contact support with your Hudu instance URL and mobile phone operating system (iOS or Android).

Signing Into Your Hudu Instance Through the Mobile App

Once the screen to sign into your Hudu instance prompts, sign in as you normally would on the Hudu web app.

By default, the Hudu mobile app supports all sign-in methods utilized by the Hudu web app. Initial authentication through Hudu web app methods is needed upon first sign-in.

    Once initially signed in, you may set up the ability to sign into your Hudu instance with onboard device biometric authentication. You must sign in normally first and then you can configure Biometric Verification by tapping on the Settings Icon in the top right.

FAQ

How to use the mobile app when your Hudu instance is self-hosted behind CloudFlare?

Answer: If hosting your Hudu instance behind CloudFlare causes the mobile app to return a "Session expired" error on sign-in, you must add the endpoints of the mobile app as new applications in CloudFlare to bypass auth.
The endpoints you must add as application paths are yourhuduinstance.com/oauth/* and yourhuduinstance.com/external_apps/*. After adding the new applications, the mobile app should allow sign-on.

Why am I getting the error message Enter a Valid Instance URL?

Answer: If you are on Hudu release 2.29 or later, you will need to ensure the mobile app is enabled in Hudu Admin External Apps (This will need to be done by an admin or super-admin).
