While Stormpath claims to offer ‘User Management’ in all their online ads, sadly after using their service on DripStat, that is exactly what we have lost.

Here is an image of Stormpath’s dashboard to 'manage your users’.

Yes, thats right. If i want to see details of any user of DripStat or perform any function on it, I have 2 choices:

  1. Click 'next’ at the bottom of the page. Browse through all the 20,000 users of DripStat, 25 at a time, to reach the 'one’.
  2. Write a custom program to do that.

Utter UX Fail

On a scale from 1 to 10, this is UX fail to 11. User management is the core service that Stormpath claims to offer and even after many months they haven’t bothered fixing such a critical issue with their interface.

If we had just created a 'users’ table in our database, life would be so much simpler…..
