Overview

Concrete5 has always included a full-featured user management system, including:

  • Full user model, with strongly encrypted passwords
  • Full integration with our attribute system, to allow web applications to store custom data against user accounts
  • The ability to group users into groups, for permissions and other business purposes

Additionally, version 5.6 and 5.7 have added

  • Group Sets
  • Combination Groups
  • Hierarchical Groups
  • Pluggable authentication layers (to easily enable third party authentication services like Twitter, Facebook, Google Authenticator, and others.)

Authenticating, verifying, reading and creating user with concrete5 is easy. Read on for more information.
