This addon allows you to authenticate your Blender with your [Blender ID] account. This authentication can then be used by other addons, such as the Blender Cloud addon

Installation

This addon is shipped with Blender, so if you have Blender 2.78 or newer you already have it. You can skip to the next section.

These installation instructions are only for Blender 2.77

Using the addon

  • Sign up for an account at the [Blender ID site](https://www.blender.org/id/) if you don't have an account yet.
  • Install the addon as described above.
  • Enable the addon in User Preferences → Addons → System.
  • Log in with your Blender ID and password. You only have to do this once.

Your password is never saved on your machine, just an access token. It is stored next to your Blender configuration files, in

  • Linux and similar: $HOME/.config/blender/{version}/config/blender_id
  • MacOS: $HOME/Library/Application Support/Blender/{version}/config/blender_id
  • Windows: %APPDATA%\Blender Foundation\Blender\{version}\config\blender_id

where {version} is the Blender version.
