Drupal integration


I’m building a site in Drupal 8, and notice that there is a Patreon / Dupal integration module available on drupal.org posted by MrDaleSmith

A couple of questions, please

  1. Is this an official Patreon product?

  2. On my website, I want my users to sign-in to my own website, but will they also have to sign-in to Patreon in order to access the subscription-only sections of my site?

It’s OK if they are required to create a Patreon account in addition to one on my own site, but not so great if they have to sign-in to both sites in order to use mine.

  1. Is there any documentation available for this Patreon / Drupal integration module.

Thanks so much


Hey @malcolmtent,
Thanks for reaching out. The drupal plugin is not an official Patreon product, so you’ll have to direct specific question about it’s functionality to the developer.


You can do it how the current official WP plugin does: Take them through oAuth, and then either auto-log them in if they are already logged into your site (and link their Patreon account with the drupal account) or create a user for them using their Patreon info (name, surname, email etc) and then log them into that account and link that account with their Patreon account.

This will create a rather seamless login/registration procedure which is like any social login methodology out there.


I’m not associated with the Drupal module but looking at the page for it, I located some documentation:


Those 2 documents give a better idea of the functionality, and appear to answer your questions.
