Hub Auth Module

The Hub authentication module is the default authorization scheme for managing user account credentials. This module is built into your Hub installation and enabled by default.

The settings of this authentication module let you control how user manage their Hub credentials.



The settings are configured automatically when you install Hub.

RegistrationEnables the creation of accounts for users who register themselves in Hub. If you disable this option, only users with existing Hub accounts are able to log in.
Password RestoreEnables the option for users to reset a forgotten password. When enabled, Hub sends an email message with a link to restore their password to users who request a password reset.

Auto-join GroupsAdds new users to a group when they first log in to Hub. You can select one or more groups. New users that auto-join a group inherit all of the permissions assigned to this group.
We recommend that you add users to at least one group. Otherwise, a new user is only granted the permissions that are currently assigned to the All Users group.
