Identity registration should be invite-only for CMS?

I have just setup Netlify CMS on my blog built in Eleventy. Follow the steps here - Building A Blog With Eleventy And Netlify CMS – Part 3: Managing Blog Content With Netlify CMS -

Isn’t it advisable to make sure the Identity registration is “invite-only” rather than open to everyone (in which case anyone can sign up and login to the CMS and make changes). The reason I am asking this is because the few tutorials I went through online did not even mention this.

Thanks for your help in advance.

Yes, that’s correct!

Making you post open means that anyone with access to the identity login form will be able to access the cms and make changes. Invite only protects your cms by only allowing identity users inside.

Hope this clears things up for you!
