optional login to shinyapps.io apps (>=standard account)

Is it possible to have a public shiny app deployed to shinyapps.io, but also have a login button based on which I can grant access to more data to authorized users?

Hi romunov,

I can't speak for the possibility of doing this through shinyapps.io, but I believe the shjinyauthjr package may be helpful to you.

See also this discussion.

I believe on shinyapps.io, your app is either "public" or "private" with pre-defined "authorised users" (see here).


Based on a call I had with the RStudio sales team, it is not possible to use out of the box shinyapps authentication which comes with >= Standard accounts.

One possible solution is what @larnsce mentioned. Another one would be googleAuthR).
