    Hello everyone,

    We are excited to announce that Unity Authentication now supports Bring Your Own Identity (BYOI).

    OpenID Connect (OIDC)
    With the first phase of our BYOI release, you can integrate with any OIDC-compliant identity providers, such as Firebase, AWS Cognito and Epic Online Services.

    Demo
    You can see it in action with the following demo:

    Sign In Anonymously & Link with AWS Cognito Account




    Sign In Directly with Firebase Account




    Documentation
    You can refer to our documentation (API and SDK) on how to set up and configure OIDC identity providers.

    What’s Next?
    We understand that OIDC support will not solve all BYOI use cases. We are evaluating options to further expand BYOI support based on customer needs.


    If you have specific BYOI needs, any questions or feedback, please let us know! Thank you!

    Hi @frdrkprck,

    If you can't see Authentication package v 2.2.0 in the package manager, you may need to add it manually. You can do this from the '+' button in the Package Manager

    upload_2022-10-19_11-36-13.png

    or by adding
    "com.unity.services.authentication": "2.2.0",
    to the dependencies section of your /Packages/manifest.json file.

    You should keep an eye on the Change Log linked from the Package Manager for the latest updates, we are up to v 2.3.1 now, with added support of Occulus! :cool:

    Hi, could you provide test samples for the OIDC login method?

    Hello @chengg_unity

    You are right. I can add the Amazon Cognito id provider successfully now. Thx for your help.
