Enable JetBrains Account Authentication

To let users with existing JetBrains accounts log in to Hub, enable the JetBrains Account authentication module.

To enable the JetBrains Account auth module:

  1. From the Administration menu, select Access Management > Auth Modules.

  2. From the New module drop-down list, select JetBrains Account.

    • The JetBrains Account auth module is added to YouTrack Standalone.

    • The auth module is enabled and ready for use.

  3. After the module is enabled:

    • Configure the optional settings, for example, to enable registration or add users to groups when they register a new account. For more information, see Settings.

    • Click the Test login button to test the connection. Enter the login and password for an existing JetBrains Account in the dialog.


The settings are configured automatically when you add the auth module to YouTrack Standalone.

RegistrationEnables the creation of accounts for users who register themselves in YouTrack Standalone. If you disable this option, only users with existing YouTrack Standalone accounts are able to log in.
User creationEnables creation of YouTrack Standalone accounts for unregistered users who log in with their JetBrains Account. YouTrack Standalone uses the email address to determine whether the user has an existing account.
Auto-join Groups

Automatically adds new users to groups when they register themselves in YouTrack Standalone. 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.

Read timeoutSets the period of time to wait to read and retrieve user profile data from the authorization service. The default setting is 5000 milliseconds (5 seconds).
