Can Photon host my custom authentication plugin?

Hi,

The following document: https://doc.photonengine.com/en/realtime/current/reference/custom-authentication describes how authentication could work with Photon talking to our own server to verify user credentials. I was wondering if Photon had the facility (a plugin support) for developers to upload custom authentication libraries directly to Photon cloud? This would alleviate the extra step where Photon needs to communicate and wait for response from our own server.

Thanks,
Stas

  • Hi @stas_k,

    You can make your own plugins and host them on private Enterprise Cloud. But this is different from custom authentication.
  • Yes, for our custom-authentication feature, you need your own auth-backend.
