Yahoo! Authentication Module
This authentication module lets users log in to YouTrack with their Yahoo! accounts.
Enable Yahoo! Authentication
To allow users to sign in to YouTrack with their Yahoo! accounts, enable a Yahoo! authentication module.
Before you start, verify the following requirement:
You have Create Auth Module and Update Auth Module permissions in YouTrack.
To enable the module, follow these steps.
In the Access Management section of the Administration menu, select Auth Modules.
- From the Add Module drop-down list, select Yahoo (OpenID).
The Yahoo! authentication module is created, enabled, and configured automatically.
The Auth Modules page displays the settings for the Yahoo! authentication module. For additional information about the settings on this page, see Yahoo! Authentication Module.
The icon stored in the Button Image setting is added to the login dialog window. Users can click this icon to authenticate with their Yahoo! accounts.
The settings are configured automatically when the module is added to YouTrack. You do not have to change these settings. To configure the options that define how YouTrack treats new user accounts with Yahoo! credentials, see Yahoo! Authentication Module.

User Account Management
When a user logs in to YouTrack with an Yahoo! account for the first time, YouTrack checks if an account with the same email address exists. If an account with the same email address exists, the Yahoo! credentials are added to the existing account.
Use the following settings to configure how YouTrack manages user accounts.
Enables creation of YouTrack accounts for unregistered users who log in with Yahoo! credentials. YouTrack uses the email address to determine whether the user has an existing account. If you disable this option, only users who already have accounts with matching emails are able to log in to YouTrack.
Adds users to a group when they log in with Yahoo! credentials. You can select one or more groups. New users that auto-join a group inherit all of the permissions assigned to this group.
