Deploying an OAuth Server for Netlify's CMS
In our previous post, we deployed our CMS app on AWS instead of Netlify. We couldn’t use Netlify’s Identity Service, which manages GitHub access to Netlify CMS, because we deployed on AWS. As a result, we needed to implement an external OAuth Server.
We used Netlify’s Go example to deploy on ECS Fargate and configure the domain and certificate. To deploy the application on Fargate, we used a Typescript Pulumi project. This is a polyglot application where the OAuth server is implemented in Go and the infrastructure is deployed with Typescript. We’ll show how we accomplished the deployment.
