Hi,

Does anyone know how I could disable the interface option to register as a new user? We'd like our local instance to only be accessible by users registered in our LDAP, so a user shouldn't be able to create an account on its own.

Thanks! M

Hi Matthias

Have a look at the ~/config/galaxy.ini file and set "allow_user_creation" to false

# Allow unregistered users to create new accounts (otherwise, they will have to # be created by an admin). #allow_user_creation = True

and set "allow_user_creation" to false

This is probably only the first of a few more changes, see: https://wiki.galaxyproject.org/Admin/Config/ExternalUserAuth

Regards, Hans-Rudolf

In your galaxy.ini configuration file you can set the value for 'allow_user_creation' to False to do exactly this.

Hi, thanks for the answer. This appears to be kind of a stupid question, I should have looked through the config file first. My bad!
