Authentication: $wgAutocreatePolicy
Policy to create new accounts with external authentication.
Introduced in version: 1.16.0 (r53497)
Removed in version: 1.22.0
Allowed values: string
Default value: 'login'
Other settings: Alphabetical | By function


Caution! Caution: This functionality is still experimental.

$wgAutocreatePolicy controls account auto-creation behavior when external authentication is enabled (see $wgExternalAuthType and $wgExternalAuthConfig for details.)

$wgAutocreatePolicy can be set to one of three values:

  • never - do not automatically create new accounts.
  • login – create new accounts on user login. This is the default setting.
  • view - not currently implemented. Will require the external database to support cookies and implies 'login'.
