I can’t seem to be able to login as another user than myself, on jupyterhub.
I have installed jupyterhub using the standard instructions, and then proceeded to:
I then edited the
jupyterhub_config.py with the following entry:
I then restarted jupyterhub by using the command
jupyterhub -f jupyterhub_config.py
However even after erasing all cookies in my browser, I can only login as
tbrowne, using my Linux username and password.
tbrowne is the current user that is logged into Linux, and under which JupyterHub is running. If by contrast I try to login as
jean, even though that user exists, jupyterhub gives me an
invalid username or password error.
This is despite the fact that user
jean definitely works as I have ssh’d into the box with that ID no problem. Isn’t the default PAM authenticator supposed to allow login using any user? Do I have to add
jean to some group or something under Linux for this to work?
