User are being added by system, but why?

(Jeffrey Wels) #1

For some reason, we have seen some new users being added to octopus by the user system (thus not by any admin which has the rights to do so), but i have no clue how and why.

These users are also being added to the everyone team and then it stays silent.

How can this happen. Which proces can trigger such a thing?

Please advice!

With regards,

Ok, replying to my own question. This happens because a user signs in into Octopus and is automatically assigned to the system with rights to the Everyone group. Sounds logical, but it is pretty inconvenient, since i only want persons in the system that actually have acces to any project.

Can i prevent this from hapening, thus locking out people that haven’t got a user account?

Hi Jeffrey,

Thanks for getting in touch!

Are you using an external authentication provider, such as Active Directory? There is an option within Configuration > Settings > Active Directory to disable Auto User creation which may help you.

I hope this helps, let me know if I can provide any further information.

Hi Paul,

It looks like that did the trick.
