Let users sign up with a username and password

The Native Authenticator lets users signup for creating a new username and password. When they signup, they won’t be able to login until they are authorized by an admin. Users that are characterized as admin have to signup as well, but they will be authorized automatically.

Enabling the authenticator

Enable the authenticator and reload config to apply the configuration:

sudo tljh-config set auth.type nativeauthenticator.NativeAuthenticator
sudo tljh-config reload

Allowing all users to be authorized after signup

By default, all users created on signup don’t have authorization to login. If you wish to allow any user to access the JupyterHub just after the signup, run the following command:

tljh-config set auth.NativeAuthenticator.open_signup true
tljh-config reload
