The Authentication tab allows you to choose how your users will authenticate themselves and gain access to the Coder environment. You can choose between:
- Built-In Authentication
- OpenID Connect
Built-in authentication allows you (or any admin) to manually create users who then log in with their email address and temporary password. They will be asked to change their password after they log in the first time.
Using the OpenID Connect (OIDC) option allows you to defer identity management to the OIDC provider of your choice.
