The Authentication tab allows you to choose how your users log in and gain access to Coder. Currently, you can choose between Built-In Authentication and OpenID Connect.
Built-in authentication, which is the default method, allows you (or any admin) to manually create users who log in with their email address and temporary password. Coder will ask them to change their password after they log in the first time.
The OpenID Connect (OIDC) authentication option allows you to defer identity management to the OIDC provider of your choice (e.g., Google).
To manage the ways that users can login to Coder, see Managing authentication
