Netlify Identity service brings a full suite of authentication functionality, backed by the GoTrue API. This allows you to manage and authenticate users on your site or app, without requiring them to be users of Netlify or any other service. You can use this for gated content, site administration, and more.
After clicking the Deploy to Netlify button above, you can follow the instructions for adding Identity users to the project. Any Identity users you add will have access to edit site content with Netlify CMS, without a GitHub account or access to the repository.
That's one example of something awesome that you can do with Identity service. To add Identity service to your existing web projects, check out the instructions below.
Enable Identity in the UI
Identity requires HTTPS
Identity service requires HTTPS to be secure. If you’re using a custom domain, make sure you have HTTPS working before integrating Identity service with your site.
To enable Identity service on your site, select the Identity tab and click Enable Identity.
This will create an Identity service instance for your site, and allow you to invite Identity users and change settings. To use the service in your site, you can add the Netlify Identity widget to your repository, or develop a custom solution with the gotrue-js library.
