Don't want to authenticate with email

I’ve just finish installation of passbolt server on debian 11, all is ok for the moment .
Is it possible to authenticate it with login/passwd ?
Impossible for us to used email.

Hi @Zaqen :wave: and welcome to passbolt community forum :hugs:

Passbolt relies heavily on emails as it is part of the security model:

  • Email address validation during account creation
  • Email authentication during account recovery
  • Notifications on important user actions that have a security impact.

If you can’t use email notification, you can also create users with CLI:

/usr/share/php/passbolt/bin/cake \
                                passbolt register_user \
                                -u <> \
                                -f <yourname> \
                                -l <surname>

Or get authentication url for new users with this SQL request:

SELECT u.username AS EMAIL, CONCAT(‘https://passbolt.domain.tld/setup/install/’,, ‘/’, at.token) as URL
FROM users u
INNER JOIN authentication_tokens at ON at.user_id =
WHERE = 1;
