Nintendo Identity Provider
This feature is only available in an Essentials or Enterprise plan. Please visit our pricing page to learn more.
Available since 1.36.0.
This section will cover how to add a Login with Nintendo button to FusionAuth. Below is an example login page with the Nintendo Identity Provider enabled.
Once you have completed this configuration you will be able to enable the Nintendo login button for one or more FusionAuth Applications. Below is an example login page with the Nintendo Identity Provider enabled.
Nintendo Developer Account
Create a new Nintendo developer account or log into the Nintendo Developer Portal with an existing account. Retrieve an existing
Client Id and
Client secret or follow official Nintendo documentation to request them. Contact Nintendo Developer support for additional information.
Create a Nintendo Identity Provider
To enable this identity provider for an application, find your application name in the
Applications configuration section at the bottom of this panel. You will always see the
FusionAuth application, this application represents the FusionAuth administrative user interface. If you wish to be able to log into FusionAuth with this provider, you may enable this application.
In the following screenshot you will see that we have enabled this login provider for the
Pied Piper application and enabled
Create registration. Enabling create registration means that a user does not need to be manually registered for the application prior to using this login provider.
For example, when a new user attempts to log into
Pied Piper using Nintendo, if their user does not exist in FusionAuth it will be created dynamically, and if the
Create registration toggle has been enabled, the user will also be registered for
Pied Piper and assigned any default roles assigned by the application.
If you do not wish to automatically provision a user for this application when logging in with Nintendo, leave
Create registration off. You will need to manually register a user for this application before they may
Sign in with Nintendo.
That’s it, now the
Sign in with Nintendo button will show up on the login page for the Pied Piper application.

Building Your Own Integration
If you are building your own login experience, you’ll want to start the identity provider flow yourself and then complete the login.
You might do this if you are using the Login API rather than using the hosted FusionAuth login pages.
Completing the login is documented further in the API.
If you require a refresh token after completing the login, ensure Enable JWT Refresh is
true in the application configuration. This is found in the administrative user interface by navigating to .
