I'm testing out omnibus gitlab on a local VM. After disabling anonymous signup, I tried adding a new user via the
It requires I associate an e-mail with the new user account, and it further doesn't permit me to specify a password, saying instead that:
Reset link will be generated and sent to the user.
User will be forced to set the password on first sign in.
Now, that's nice in the abstract, but I don't want to have to configure, harden, and maintain a separate mail server simply so that gitlab can send these e-mails. There will be few enough users of this machine that I can manually administer them (i.e. if they forget their password, they can just e-mail me directly).
Is there any way for me to simply create accounts and assign passwords without getting e-mail involved?
Worth noting in passing that while I did discover this, and it is nice, I'd still prefer not to have to get gmail or mailgun involved, easy though they are to setup.
