Privacy and security

The Identity role handles personal data in the following ways:

  • Provides authentication services for users logging in to BizFX. Users enter usernames/email address and passwords to authenticate.

  • Does not persist data and instead relies on Sitecore’s underlying authentication mechanism.

For information about how to secure the Identity Server role, see the documentation about Commerce security.
