Allow alternative login


Often people don't have personal AWS accounts and do not want their re:Post profile to be a hostage of their current employment! Please, allow alternative authentication! And maybe linking AWS accounts (more than one).

Would suggest the team to add social media logins as well.

While the team is working to add more login methods, one alternative is to create a new, personal AWS account, and leveraging the 1 year free tier one might be getting some additional AWS knowledge that might help them professionally down the road.

  • I think this is a good workaround. Yes, having a new login method is pretty convenient but underneath that convenience lies the risk of having bogus profiles and lots of spam in this new platform.

  • How would one add their cert badges from Credly if the emails don't match?


Thank you for your suggestion for more flexible login/account capabilities. We hear your feedback on this, and this enhancement is already on our priority list -- please stay tuned for more around this request. We appreciate your feedback and continued participation in the re:Post community! Kind Regards, Monica L.

Hi, using an account to log in ensures that you are a customer of AWS and have accepted terms and conditions. I understand that this is the reason behind requiring an account.

The concern about loosing your profile when switching jobs sounds reasonable, my advice is to create a personal free account and leverage the free tier to practice.

About login with social media (once you have initially authenticated with your AWS account), could be a good request for enhancement. I'll channel this request internally.

Hope my answer helps. Please remember to choose an accepted answer.

  • Certainly having a personal account and using that for re:Post makes sense that way you will also get use AWS env for some hands-on experience.


It is now possible to register for re:Post using an Amazon Builder ID.
