where to install Fusion Auth?



  • My webApp (under development) runs in a Docker Container and is currently on my laptop. My hosting service is AWS and the container will eventually be pushed up there. I see mention of both Docker and AWS on this forum. What will be the simplest path to integrating FusionAuth with my app? In a Docker container with my app or is there some more sophisticated integration with AWS (and not in Docker)?

    My app allows an admin to setup a "campaign" which includes the email addresses of users who can open a popup window (after authentication) to fill out a form. I like the idea of "passwordless login" since these users will not be logging in very often. Can someone "map out" what I need to do at a minimum to get such system up?



  • Hello,

    What will be the simplest path to integrating FusionAuth with my app?

    You can self host FusionAuth, in which case, yes, docker on AWS is a valid option. There isn't an AMI or FusionAuth offering in the AWS marketplace at this time. You can self host it using any of the options outlined in the installation docs. It's hard to know what to recommend as I don't know what system technologies you are deploying other parts of your application with.

    You can also use FusionAuth Cloud for a managed offering, which means you won't have to manage FusionAuth at all. Learn more about that option here: https://fusionauth.io/pricing

    Can someone "map out" what I need to do at a minimum to get such system up?

    I'm not sure what you're asking here. If you want help setting up passwordless, I'd review the passwordless guide. If this doesn't help, can you explain a bit more what you're looking to do?
