Identity management using Rocket.Chat


I am trying to figure out, since the documentation is still under construction, if I could use Rocket.Chat as an identity server for my mailserver, so that I can centralize user management and no longer have to manage a User DB for postman/dovecot :slight_smile:

Server Setup Information

  • Version of Rocket.Chat Server:
  • Operating System: Debian 11
  • Deployment Method: Snap
  • Number of Running Instances: 1
  • DB Replicaset Oplog: Don’t know
  • NodeJS Version: Don’t know
  • MongoDB Version: Don’t know
  • Proxy: Nginx
  • Firewalls involved: Not relevant, I guess?

No, and it wouldn’t be a great idea anyway.

Use something designed for the job eg LDAP.

You can use Rocket with LDAP (though they have now moved all the fancy features to EE) and Postfix/Dovecot and much more besides.
