Multiplus owners in one instance n8n

Hello guys! We apply user management and we have a question and need. Is it possible to have more than one owner on the instance?

Hi @viniciusingracio, I am afraid this isn’t possible right now but I know our product and engineering teams are working hard on improving the user management functionality. Perhaps @sirdavidoff can share some more details on this?

Hi, sorry for the delay, I was away. Okay, we are waiting for updates. Thanks.

By the way, do we have any documentation on reversing the usage of user management?

There is no documented/supported way for this at the moment I am afraid.

One method I have tried here together with @Benjamin_Exner to actually disable user management (and handle authentication solely in the reverse proxy) was:

  1. Exporting all workflows and credentials via the CLI (described here)
  2. Switch to a fresh database (if using the default SQLite database that can be achieved by moving or deleting the old database.sqlite file, a new one will then be created on the next n8n start)
  3. Set the N8N_USER_MANAGEMENT_DISABLED environment variable to true
  4. Start n8n and import the workflows and credentials exported in step 1

This approach will not preserve tags or execution logs though. With these being merely a workaround I’d strongly suggest backing up your data beforehand.
