Hub Auth Module

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

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

Hub auth module settings


The settings are configured automatically when you install YouTrack with a built-in Hub service.

Password restore

Enables the option for users to reset a forgotten password. When enabled, YouTrack sends an email message with a link to restore their password to users who request a password reset.

Password strength

Stores the password policy setting applied to Hub accounts. For more information about password strength and security, see Set a Password Policy.


Enables the creation of accounts for users who register themselves in YouTrack. If you disable this option, only users with existing YouTrack accounts are able to log in.

When enabled, additional settings that you can use to manage users who register their own accounts in YouTrack are shown. For a detailed description of these settings, see Registration Settings


Links to the Audit Events page. There, you can view a list of changes that were applied to this authentication module.

Registration Settings

When the Registration option is enabled, there are additional settings that you can use to manage users who register their own accounts in YouTrack.



Auto-join Groups

Automatically adds new users to groups when they register their own accounts in to YouTrack. You can select one or more groups. New users that auto-join a group inherit all of the permissions that are assigned to this group.
We recommend that you add users to at least one group. Otherwise, new users are only granted the permissions that are currently assigned to the All Users group. Do not use this option to add users to groups that grant unnecessary access to sensitive data.


Enables the use of reCAPTCHA on the registration page. This feature protects your installation from registration bots.

When you enable this option, you need to register Hub in the Google reCAPTCHA key management console. The input fields that store the site key and secret key are located on the Auth Modules > Common Settings page. To learn how to configure reCAPTCHA for self-registration, see reCAPTCHA Settings.
