Part 3: Integrating the VTEX Login

In this guide, you'll learn how to integrate the VTEX Login with your FastStore project.

The VTEX Login is provided by the vtexcommercestable environment and uses a subdomain. Therefore, to successfully integrate the VTEX Login with your FastStore project, you must add a redirect back to the FastStore environment and set up the necessary auth cookies to authenticate client requests and maintain session information. This way, once shoppers finish logging in to your store, they can be redirected back to your website's main domain.


Before you start

  • Ensure you have already configured the custom domain name of your FastStore website.
  • Stores that currently use Portal (Legacy) technology are required to update their vtex.edition-business@0.x to vtex.edition-store@5.x, and to migrate their secure domain to VTEX IO. To make these changes, please open a support ticket with the VTEX support team and request that the Edition App installed in your account be updated and that your secure domain be migrated from Portal (Legacy) to VTEX IO.

Step by step

  1. Click on the Save Template button.

To authenticate client requests and maintain session information, you must ensure that the auth cookies are set up for the Login subdomain. To do that, open a support ticket to the Identity team requesting to set up the auth cookie root domain for your FastStore URL.
