Jabylon comes with modular and fine grained authentication and authorization mechanisms. The following documents will describe how you can utilize them.

System Users

There are two system users predefined. The user Administrator with the password changeme has the role Administrator. This role is predefined and has all permissions. The second user is called Anonymous and has no password and by default the single role Anonymous. A user that is not logged in is automatically considered Anonymous.

Initially the Anonymous role has permission to browse the projects, but not edit them. You can remove permissions or add additional ones as you see fit.

Self registration

New users can register an account on their own. By default this option is disabled for security reasons. To enable user self registration you need to assign the right User:register to the Anonymous role. For details on how to do that see Global Permissions. If this permission is assigned, new users will receive a link to the registration form in the login page.
