You may want to allow user to freely create new accounts by enabling Open Registration for your AEN installation. When Open Registration is enabled, anyone who has access to the URL of your AEN Server can create their own account. To enable Open Registration:
In the AEN navigation bar, click Admin to open the Admin Settings page.
- In the Site Admin menu, select Accounts.
- To open user registration, select the Open Registration checkbox. To close registration, clear the checkbox.
Click the Update button.
Open Registration may not suit your organizational needs. You may want to require your IT department to create and manage all user accounts at the OS level. After an OS-level account exists, an AEN account using the same name may be created on the main AEN webpage. The password set during registration is not linked to the OS-level password. Alternatively, the system can be configured to use LDAP for authenticated users. This requires that the your config file /opt/wakari/wakari-compute/etc/wakari/config.json includes:
"MANAGE_ACCOUNTS": false, Public Access to Projects in AEN 4.0+If you wish to allow access by non-users to your public projects through the Viewer App an account must be created for the public to use called, for example, public or anonymous. In order to enable this you must edit the configs files, /opt/wakari/wakari-compute/etc/wakari/config.json and /opt/wakari/wakari-server/etc/wakari/config.json. Both files should be edited to include the following:
You may call the account anything you like, in this case we called it "public."
