A plugin that nicely displays Netlify Identity user info instead of the raw ID.


To fetch user info for your Netlify Identity instance, you need to publish a specific Netlify function.

Install the datocms-plugin-netlify-identity package in your project, then add a file called user-info.js in your functions folder with the following content:

import generateHandler from 'datocms-plugin-netlify-identity';

const accessToken = 'CHANGEME';
export const handler = generateHandler(accessToken);

Once deployed, you can configure the plugin setting inserting both the URL of the Netlify function, and the access token you chose:



Install all the project dependencies with:

yarn install

Start the local development server with:

yarn start

The plugin will be served from Insert this URL as the plugin Entry point URL.
