I am currently using Netlify CMS in combination with Netlify Identity to authenticate editors which is working correctly. However, I am currently in the process of moving to a custom deploy process for Netlify CMS through GithubActions and AWS.
The site currently builds correctly and deploys but I am having trouble getting the Netlify Identity service to function properly; navigating to
/.netlify/identity returns a 404. After reading over the Netlify documentation, it is unclear how to properly integrate Netlify Identity with a different CI / CD stack.
A few clarifying questions:
Is there existing documentation on integrating the Identity service with a third party CDN provider?
/.netlifypath a DNS alias/redirect that points to a Netlify-hosted authentication service? If so, is it possible to set up a similar redirect with a different CDN provider like Cloudfront?
If not, is the
/.netlifypath something which is built and deployed as part of the normal site deploy process?
