How to automatically create home directories for new users while logging into RStudio Web UI


#1

Hello All,

Our new users are getting "Unable to connect to service" error while logging into WebUI since they don't have a home directory in the server. The error gets fixed when you login via ssh and a home directory gets created. Problem is we donot want all our business users to login to the server via ssh since it requires a lot of other jump host access. Is it possible to create the home dirs automatically in the server when they login to the UI for the first time.
