Users Overview

Heimdall currently provides a built-in user database that allows individual users to have defined authentication (password) and login locations defined.

Further, if desired, a user can be configured as a read-only user, and Google Authenticator compatible two-factor authentication.

Required fields for each user include:

Internally, passwords are stored in the same way that OpenLDAP stores them by default, i.e. Salted SHA. Example, {SSHA}cca9bbffe6879f8367ab681952da2f995bf1668f

If the Read-only option is selected for a user, they will not be able to implement any changed to the configuration, but will be able to access any resources allowed by their filter.
