Paths can be used to organize users into folders depending on which source created them or organizational structure. Paths may not start or end with a slash, but they can contain any other character as path segments. The paths are currently purely used for organization, it does not affect their permissions, group memberships, or anything else.


Optional flag, when set to false, Tokens created by the user will not expire.

This field is only used by the Proxy Provider.

Some applications can be configured to create new users using header information forwarded from authentik. You can forward additional header information by adding each header underneath additionalHeaders:


REMOTE-USER: joe.smith

These headers will now be passed to the application when the user logs in. Most applications will need to be configured to accept these headers. Some examples of applications that can accept additional headers from an authentik Proxy Provider are Grafana and Tandoor Recipes.
