First Factor

Authelia uses a username and password for a first factor method. This section describes configuring this.

There are two ways to integrate Authelia with an authentication backend:

Configuration

authentication_backend:
  refresh_interval: 5m
  disable_reset_password: false
  password_reset:
    custom_url: ""

Options

refresh_interval

duration 5m not required

This setting controls the interval at which details are refreshed from the backend. Particularly useful for LDAP.

disable_reset_password

boolean false not required

This setting controls if users can reset their password from the web frontend or not.

password_reset

custom_url

string not required

The custom password reset URL. This replaces the inbuilt password reset functionality and disables the endpoints if this is configured to anything other than nothing or an empty string.

file

The file authentication provider.

ldap

The LDAP authentication provider.
