I’m trying to set up a new gitlab server.
I have it running, and I have created an API token for root, and with that I have created a lot of users and made sure email address verification for new users is turned off i.e.
curl --insecure --header 'PRIVATE-TOKEN: <token removed - you don't need to know>' 'https://localhost/api/v4/application/settings' | jq . | grep confirmation
But after using the password recovery feature (“Forgot your password?” on the login page) to set a new password for my ordinary user, I can’t login, but gets “You have to confirm your email address before continuing.” on every attempt. If I log in to the database, and change the
confirmed_at field in the users table for my user to actually contain a date, I can login, but that can’t be the right way.
What have I done wrong?
