Subject [jira] [Commented] (AIRFLOW-294) Add support for creating users with password (password_auth backend)
Date Tue, 26 Sep 2017 15:01:00 GMT


Michael Crawford commented on AIRFLOW-294:

I think likely people are using a single airflow user or are integrating with some other authentication

Since if you turn password protection on, you have to create the first user via command line,
people don't ever bother with the UI side of things.

But if you need this feature, then by all means create a pull request for it.

> Currently the workflow to add new users through the UI is to create a new user. This
form takes the username and the email id of the user but there seems to be no place to provide
the password (unless I am mistaken) or for that matter to specify if the user is a super user.
This makes the scope of this auth backend limited as new users need to be creating using db
commands instead of the UI. Could one of the maintainers shed some light to this?
