Netlify Identity ID

I noticed NI (or it’s gotrue implementation) is using different user ids depending on the method user has authenticated. Is there a way I can force it to assign only one unique ID per user, regardless whether they choose to login with email or oAuth provider?

Interesting! You’re seeing folks with the same email address be able to create multiple copies of themselves in your identity list by logging in with different providers? I don’t have a good setup with multiple providers to test, just wanted to make sure I’d read your situation correctly before I went out to try to set one up.

There is no way you can affect the ID for a created user, but I am not sure what the intention is around multiple-logins-same-email if that is what you are talking about.

Thanks in advance for your help in troubleshooting!

I got to the bottom of it and it my database was updated with user I used for localhost with the same email address I’d test simultaneously in deployment. Sorry for the false alarm, feel free to delete this issue :sweat_smile::gun:
