Skip or disable user management#
You don't have to use n8n's user management feature. You can:
- Leave it enabled, but choose to skip the setup step. You can use n8n as normal. If you want to set up user management later, go to Settings > Users.
- Self-hosted only: Disable the feature completely using the
N8N_USER_MANAGEMENT_DISABLEDenvironment variable. Setting this environment variable to
truecompletely hides the feature in your n8n instance. You can't use this setting if you have already set up an owner account.
